Parish Mission Invite - St. Boniface Catholic Church - Evansville, IL
It has been over seven months since I arrived at St. Boniface Parish; together we accomplished much from the successful 150th anniversary celebration to the repair of our facilities.  For the last two months, I thought and prayed for continued conversion and spiritual renewal in our parish.  After speaking with a few priests, I thought we should investigate the possibility of a parish mission.  Parish missions are an ideal opportunity to break open God’s Word and rediscover the riches of our Catholic heritage.  I spoke with the parish council and they strongly support the idea of hosting a mission.  Our St. Boniface Parish Mission will begin on the weekend masses of May 5-6, 1012 and conclude with the closing liturgy on May 12, 1012.  Our mission priest, Rev. Peter Schavitz, C.Ss.R., is well known by many in our diocese as a dynamic and engaging preacher.  In fact, Fr. Peter presented a mission at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Chester last year and is presenting a mission this year at St. Mary Parish in Carlyle.  Conversion is the spiritual theme of our mission.  While May of 2012 seems far off, much work is necessary to host a successful mission.  What can you do?  First, each day please pray for the success of our parish mission.  Secondly, we need many people to help organize the mission; volunteers are needed to organize refreshments, promote/advertise the mission, assist in liturgical preparation, and much more.  We need your help!  Please consider joining the mission planning committee; you will be part something exciting and uplifting!
