Beloved Disciple Parish

Knights of Columbus News

Congratulations to Madison and Jude Osborn!!  Madison won the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship for her age group at the district, regional, state and international levels, a first for a local athlete and a truly incredible achievement. At the state contest, Madison scored a perfect 25 out of 25 free throw baskets. She was presented with her international trophy after Mass on Saturday, June 29, by Dave Spam, an officer with the state Knights of Columbus. Her younger brother Jude also won the district, regional, and state contests in his age group. Madison and Jude are the children of Doug and Amber Osborn and members of the Church of Beloved Disciple Parish.

 

Parish Evening Prayer:  During the Summer months the Parish Evening Prayer group will meet three times in the Grove City Memorial Park:  Tuesday July 30 at 7pm and Tuesday August 13 at 7pm. Bring a snack or drink that can be shared (maybe a chair also). We will be in one of the Shelters provided in the Park.  Join us.

 

Book Club Summer Reading:  the following books have been selected for the Parish Book Club to read this Summer. Read one or two or all four. We will meet in September to discuss each book.  Feel Free to contact Deacon Owen in the Parish Office with questions or concerns.  

 When the Jessamine Grows by Donna Everhart

The Wide, Wide Sea by Hampton Sides

The Second Life of Mirielle West by Amanda Skenandore

Look for Me There: Grieving My Father, Finding Myself  by Luke Russert

 

Volunteer drivers are needed to assist parishioners getting back and forth to Mass. We are in need of a volunteer to help transport a parishioner to confession and 4:30 Mass on Saturdays. BeLoved Mercy Ministries has a family living at The Hartle House, and they are in need of transportation back and forth to the Grove City Outlets where they both work. If you are able to assist in any way, please give Victoria Wagner a call at extension 116.

Milestone Anniversary Celebration

This year, the Diocese of Erie's Faith Formation Office of Marriage and Family Life will once again host the annual Milestone Anniversary Celebrations for couples celebrating 25, 40, 50, 60 or more years of marriage in two locations: Sunday, August 4 at St. George Church, Erie, and Sunday, August 18 at Beloved Disciple Church, Grove City. Both will be held at 2 pm on their respective dates. Please note that the August 18th celebration was previously advertised at an alternate location, but due to unforeseen circumstances and thanks to the hospitality of the Beloved Disciple Parish community, it will be hosted in Grove City.
         Couples and/or parish staff may complete a registration form online here or by calling their parish office or contacting the Marriage and Family Life Office at 814-824-1210. Registrations are being accepted until July 21 for Erie and until August 4 for Grove City.

Monthly Socials:  We have been so excited about how well attended our monthly socials have been!  However, with everyone's crazy summer schedules, we have decided to not have a social during the months of June and July. Socials will be back in August !!! We hope you all have an amazing summer and look forward to gathering again in August. Helpers are needed if interested!

THANK YOU!!  We would like to say a big “Thank You!”, to all those who contributed their time, talent, and treasure to make our Vacation Bible School this year a great success! We had a wonderful week at SCUBA, diving into friendship with God by engaging Bible stories that came to life, reading the Gospel of John, participating in science that showed the wonders of God’s creation and learning about the Saints, not to mention lots of playing outside and fun snacks. We are so grateful to the many people that volunteered their time, especially those who assisted in creating and decorating such an amazing environment that made everyone feel they were diving into the deep. Our week of SCUBA would not have been possible without the adult and youth leaders who led the children through each day, by encouraging them, playing, and praying with them. We also wish to express our gratitude to all those in the parish who donated items we needed and to those made monetary donations. It was great week of blessings through our growing in friendship with God and with each other.

Learning the Catholic Faith and Tradition:  We will explore and discuss various topics of Catholicism during the "Adult Catechism" sessions scheduled below.  We will meet Sunday mornings in the Parish Library at 9:30am and conclude no later than 10:45. Please join us for one or all sessions as we continue to learn about our Catholic Faith. The dates are:  July 14, July 28, and August 11. Feel free to contact Deacon Owen with questions or for more information.  

 

Ever thought about joining the Catholic Church?   There is no better time than the present to put your thoughts into action. A Question-and-Answer session will be held Sunday July 14 at 12 noon, in the Parish Library, to discuss what OCIA/RCIA is all about. Need to update your Sacraments or need to discuss having your marriage blessed by the Church or want to join the Catholic Church...we will discuss any and all questions you may have or for someone you know.  All are welcome to join the discussion. Please feel free to contact Deacon Owen in the Parish Office at ext. 110 for additional information.
