CAFÉ 3:16 - When you hear the word “Conversion,” what comes
to mind? Catholicism defines “conversion” as a life-long process
of turning one’s attention and energy toward an ever-deepening
relationship with Christ. Join us as we begin the DVD-based
program, Conversion: Following the Call of Christ, presented
by Fr. Robert Barron. Using six stories from the Bible, Fr. Barron
demonstrates how ordinary, sinful people like us are met by Jesus
and called to a better life through him.On May 17th our parish
will begin the Conversion: Following the Call of Christ program.
Join us at 9:45 on Sunday monrings in the St. Benedict
classroom.

The Ascension of Our Lord, a Holy Day of Obligation, celebrates
the day that Christ, in the presence of His apostles, ascended bodily
into Heaven. The Ascension occurred on the 40th day of Easter, so
it falls on a Thursday, and thus is often called Ascension Thursday;
however, in most dioceses in the United States, the celebration of
the Ascension has been transferred to the following Sunday, six
weeks after Easter 2015.

DOMINGO DE LA ASCENSION DEL SEÑOR - 17 DE MAYO, 2015
Primera: Hch 1,1-11; Segunda: Ef 4,113; Evangelio: Mc 16, 15-20.
Nexo entre las lecturas
La ascensión del Señor marca una etapa
nueva y definitiva para los apóstoles. El
Señor resucitado ya no aparecerá más, sino
que sube al cielo para interceder por los
hombres ante el Padre. Este hecho es
narrado por los hechos de los apóstoles en
la primera lectura subrayando el estupor y asombro de aquellos
hombres (1L). El evangelio insiste, de modo particular, en la
misión que Jesús confía a sus apóstoles. Se trata de un verdadero
mandato apostólico: Id y predicad (Ev). En la segunda lectura,
tomada de la carta a los Efesios, Pablo subraya la necesidad de
comportarse adecuadamente conforme a la vocación, pues a cada
uno se le ha dado la gracia en la medida del don de Cristo (2L).
Así pues, los apóstoles se encuentran ante una nueva situación.
Por una parte, según las palabras de Cristo, deben esperar para ser
revestidos del Espíritu Santo, pero por otra parte, deben meditar
que ya ha empezado la hora de dar continuidad a la obra de Cristo
en su cuerpo que es la Iglesia.

Special Collection - May 23-24
There will be a special collection for Catholic Relief
Services to assist with the relief efforts in Nepal.
CRS has made an initial commitment of $825,000 to
relief efforts in Nepal, a figure that is expected to rise
as the needs become clearer. The official death toll is
over 6,000 – with thousands more injured — but few
outlying villages have been reached and widespread
destruction, especially in hillside settlements, is
feared. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Bring us all your
plastic bottle caps!
For the month of
May the Parish
Council of Catholic Women will be
collecting plastic bottle caps. The
caps will be recycled to raise money
to buy wheelchairs for disabled
children. A box will be in the
Administrative Hall. FYI the website
is www.capsoflove.com.
