St. John Vianney celebrates 1st Eucharist
Please join us for the celebration of the Liturgy of the Eucharist with reception of first Holy Communion, on June 7, at 10:30am. Please take a moment to sign the prayer poster located in the social hall for our parish's 13 children receiving Holy Communion for the first time. We are also looking for potluck brunch items for the reception following the Mass. Contact Mary Lawrence if you can help with the reception food. Thank you for helping to make this a special day for the children!

SJV Ministry Fair May 30-31
On the weekend of May 30th-31st our parish is asking each of you to consider what more you can do here at St. John Vianney as a member of our community. After each Mass that weekend you will find your friends and fellow parishioners ready to answer questions about all our ministries and hoping to sign you up--to serve with Fr. Marc on the altar, or to share some of the maintenance of our lovely grounds, or to teach our faith to the children of our parish as a catechist, or to serve muffins and happy greetings at Coffee Hour, or to arrange flowers, or even to do some logging for firewood for those in need of heat. The list of ways you can make SJV a more sacred, generous, beautiful, and cheery place is long. All through this month please think about what you can share with your church, and then at the Ministry Fair, sign up. And if there is a new ministry you would like to see represented that weekend, let us know. Please call Kristen Elliott with questions, 529-4119. Thank you.

CRS - SUPPORT NEPAL Just 2 weeks after the earthquake struck, the death toll has surpassed 8,000. More than 500,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed—and now today, another earthquake, magnitude 7.3, struck outside of Kathmandu.

Our brothers and sisters in Nepal still need our help.

CRS received 8,000 tarpaulins last Thursday, and we have reached more than 2,000 families. We’re now exploring remote areas by helicopter so we can bring supplies to communities stranded by landslides. We are also distributing water treatment kits, hygiene kits and blankets to 15,000 families.

Will you help us continue to respond to the needs of these families? Shelter is always an urgent need in the first weeks—and with monsoon season approaching, we want to help families rebuild as quickly as possible.
