Catholic Social Service Food Drive

About one in six people in the United States struggles with hunger, and issues related to hunger affect people in every community. In the fight to stamp out hunger, food banks play a key role by securing billions of pounds of food each year and distributing it to millions of people in need. Helping your local food bank stock up can also help your community be better prepared for emergencies, as demand on food banks often grows during a disaster or crisis.

CSS Thanksgiving food drive bags will come home this week. Please return to school by November 9th.

Home and School Association Meeting

Did you know you are a member of the St. Patrick Home and School Association (HSA)? A general meeting for all HSA members (you!) will be held on Wednesday, October 10th from 7-8pm in the school gym.

Katherine Lewallen from LPS give a short presentation about Title 1 and then answer any questions parents may have for her. After the presentation Mrs. Placek will show "A Safe Haven Starts at Home." This video will cover what to do if you find out your child is viewing pornography as well as discusses cyberbullying and cyber predators. The video is 18 minutes long and provides parents with great advice on how to start a dialogue about difficult topics with their children.

We hope to see you there!

Spookghetti/Trunk or Treat Preparation

This event will not be possible without all of you!! We still need lots of trunks filled and help setting up. Please take a minute to sign up and we also really need to know if you plan on attending so we have enough food ordered. The children love this event and it's a chance to meet new people and help our school. Our Spookghetti/Trunk or Treat night is not only fun, it is also a major fundraiser for our church and school.

There are 2 links below we need you to check out. One is for each family to find an opportunity to help in the planning/execution of the Spookghetti event. The other is a link to RSVP so we can make sure we have enough food and candy for all who attend!

"Making Sense of the Insensible" with Fr. Sean Kilcawley - October 6

Its been a rough few months for Holy Mother Church, locally and universal. Many of us find ourselves confused, doubting, angry, and unsure. We have little eyes looking up at us, trusting us to lead them in the right direction. As women, the life bearers of the world, we can bring new life into the Church. We are raising the next generation of Catholic Christians. Please join us for coffee, fellowship, and a discussion with Fr. Sean Kilcawley addressing the role of mothers in combating the current crisis in the Body of Christ

Fr. Sean Kilcawley (Lincoln MOMs Spiritual Director) is a nationally recognized speaker on the Theology of the Body, Human Love and pornography addiction. He was ordained a priest in 2005 for the Diocese of Lincoln. In 2013, Fr. Kilcawley completed a License in Sacred Theology at John Paul II institute for marriage and family studies in Rome and returned to the Diocese of Lincoln as director of Religious Education. Fr. Kilcawley currently serves as the Director of theOffice of Family Life and theological advisor for Integrity - a non-profit organization that seeks to restore the integrity of families affected by pornography by providing education and resources to individuals, spouses, parents, and clergy; to both heal and prevent wounds inflicted by the sexualized culture.
