Prayer For Our Nation

God of Justice and Truth,

we ask your blessing on our nation.

Thank you for the freedoms we enjoy,

especially those we take for granted.

Thank you for the diversity of our people

and enlarge our capacity for tolerance

and mutual respect.

As we celebrate our independence as a

sovereign nation, may we also celebrate our

interdependence.

Make us mindful of the blessings of our

rich and abundant land.

May your gracious Spirit inspire us to

work together to meet the

challenges of our times.

With all hope, faith, and trust in you. Amen.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Could You Watch With Me For One Hour?  


In the main church beginning Tuesday, June 16th


The Eucharist is the center of our Catholic faith, Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. It is a Sacrament of great love, and Jesus is waiting there for us. Jesus is asking: Could you come and spend an hour or half an hour a week with Me? He is constantly inviting us to come to Him and speak to Him from our hearts. The Church and the world are in great need of Eucharistic worship. Do not refuse Him. These precious moments in His presence is where we receive abundant grace. Pope Pius XIII said that there is no doubt that a flood of graces will descend upon your family and the world if more souls would become docile pupils of adoration.


Tuesday evenings - 6 to 7 p.m.

Wednesday mornings - 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon

All are welcome! Please join us!


Also, we are always looking for additional “committed Eucharistic adorers” for each hour of adoration. Would you please prayerfully consider filling one of the above hours? Interested in signing up for a specific hour or learning more? Please contact Pat Hurd at: 603-882-1503 or phurd1503@aol.com.

Fans Needed!! ~ Can You Help?

The temperature is rising! Corpus Christ Food Pantry & Assistance serves many clients who rent apartments in upper levels of buildings here in Nashua with no air conditioning and often not even a fan. They welcome your donations of new or gently used fans. The fans will be distributed in July and August.  God bless you for your continued support!



Please drop off at Corpus Christi,

3 Crown Street on Monday or

Wednesday from 9am to 12 noon, or

contact Susan Dignan at 603-598-1641

for more information. You may also leave

the fans at the parish and a volunteer

will pick them up.

Corpus Christi Volunteer Request

Corpus Christi Food Pantry is in need of a volunteer for 3 to 4 hours on Tuesdays. We need someone to work in the garage handing out the food, monitoring the flow of people, as well as “muscle” to bring food up the stairs.   If you think you can help, please call Maryellen at: 603-882-6372

Faith Formation ~ GIFT & EDGE Program News

Living the Liturgy at Home Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time


Prayer

God of life and love, in every time and place you call people to serve you. No one is too young to praise you; no one is too old to respond to your call. Help us to answer your call with all our hearts, turning away from sin to follow Christ’s example. Show us how to share the Good News with others in our words and in our deeds. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


Conversation Questions

What are some of the things our family members are called to do as disciples?  Who has God sent into our lives to accompany us on the path of discipleship?


Faith in Action

Learn more about the Twelve Apostles, Jesus’ primary disciples. How did they meet Jesus? What did they do before they were apostles? What did they do after Christ’s death? The apostles were ordinary people who answered God’s call to serve with extraordinary faith and willingness. Their stories can be found in the Gospel and in the Acts of the Apostles.


Did You Know?

...the word disciple can mean that someone is both a follower and a student? Discipleship is about learning about God and working on changing your ways to serve him better. We always have to work on being a disciple!
