Francis DeSales Deanery Catholic Men’s Fellowship Event

July 27, 2011 under Events

We would like to invite YOU to a morning of Men’s Fellowship with:

Bill Staun (deacon candidate) graduated in 1970 with a B.A. from the Athenaeum of Ohio. “I first applied for the Permanent Diaconate right after my mother died, I was 35. I was rejected. In 2000 I started the LPMP Program and again applied for the Permanent Diaconate. This time I was accepted.”


Jim Romanello (seminarian), from Cincinnati, Ohio where he has lived his whole life. “I am the eleventh of fourteen children, seven boys and seven girls. I grew up in a traditional Catholic Italian family. I am beginning my seventh year in seminary formation. It is a long process, but well worth the time and effort.”


Who will speak about their calling to which the Lord is working in their lives.

We will follow with a fellowship discussion on the variety of men’s callings and hear personal stories of discernment and the paths of discovery.

Thought of the Day kids

July 19, 2011 under Uncategorized

"Those who can – do.  Those who can’t – criticize."

Keep in mind – "that the work of the critic, is of altogether
secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is

accomplished by the person who does things."
– Theodore Roosevelt

Our Lady of the Mountains Volunteer Opportunity

July 8, 2011 under Events

We have a work day planned at OLM on July 23rd.  The day will be spent packaging the socks and underwear for the big back to school giveaway.  Until last year they serviced about 100 families.  Last year it was over 150 and this year it is over 200 families.  An indication of how bad the economy is in that area.  The families average about 3 children a piece so that means there are well over 2000 undies and socks to be put into the family bags by size and gender.  They need extra hands to accomplish the job.  Beside what the people of OLM have collected IHM has donated socks and underwear from Undee Sunday, the day school sock drive, and the socks and underwear from the VBS collection.

If you are free that Saturday we will  leave IHM about 7:30 or so and be back by late afternoon or when people need to leave.  It would difficult to have small children there but older children are welcome and Sr. would be happy to give letters indicating service hours if they are needed.   This isn’t just a women event.  I remember how good some of you men were at sorting when we redid the storage building last winter.  Of course lunch will be provided.  You can let me know if you can make it.  In the summer OLM has a Saturday evening (late afternoon) Mass so if anyone is interested you are welcome to stay for Mass before returning home.  Last year a CHRP team went down to help so if you are part of group you might want to ask them if they would like to join you.

Please send an email directly to Judy ( if you are interested in participating.
