Lucia Mauriello and Gretchen Probst completed their Girl Scout Silver Award service hours by creating prayer resources and artwork for our parish children. Artwork is now displayed in the parish cry room in the vestibule of the Upper Church and in the classroom where Children’s Liturgy of the Word gathers during 9:30am Masses. Lucia and Gretchen also compiled songs to make a CD and printed a liturgy guide to assist our Children’s Liturgy of the Word participants. Thank you to Rupa Kale at Bottle and Bottega art studio for her generous donation of canvases, paint, and over 30 hours of studio time! The children and families of Little Flower thank God for Lucia and Gretchen’s service.
Our Going Home Campaign has officially kicked off and we're excited to share information, answer questions, and show you the renderings of the Parish Center and Little Church expansion. All parishioners should have received an invitation in the mail to one of our receptions to learn more about the Campaign so you can return home to discuss and pray with your family what you are able to contribute. If you are unable to make the dates on your invitation, please call the rectory for more information.
