1. For the meeting of our diocesan clergy this week (I will be gone on Tuesday evening and depending on how late I get in, sleeping late on Wednesday)
  2. For guidance on all of our evangelization efforts
  3. For our PSR programs - this week we will be starting Pflaum Gospel Weeklies - part of the new curriculum which will be focusing on the liturgical readings. Since most of our children do not attend mass (look around at mass - we should have roughly 120 grade school and 60 high school children in Carlinville and about half that for Gillespie / Benld), it is hoped that this focus will entice families back to mass as well as give an experience of Christ through the breaking open of scripture to those who do not attend. Pray for the success of this transition as well as the success of the ultimate goal for this new curriculum.
