Bulletin Announcement for May 11-12, Ascension of the Lord

Ascension of the Lord
Today’s readings center around one glorious event, the ascension of Jesus into heaven. This moment shows us the divine authority of God through the fulfillment of his mission here on earth. Let us lift up our hearts, praising Jesus for all he accomplished through his ascension.

As followers of Christ, we are all called to trust in God’s timing. Just as the disciples obeyed His words to preach the Gospel and await “the promise of the Father,” we too must put all our trust into the Lord.

Reflect on a time when you waited for something important—how does the apostles’ experience waiting in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit help you understand the role of patience in your life?

Mother's Day
Mother’s Day is a wonderful way to highlight the beautiful vocation of motherhood.  It calls us to cherish the gift of life that we receive from our mothers and to pray for all women to whom God has entrusted life in a very special way.

Today, we are provided with an opportunity to pray for mothers while honoring and seeking the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. Please join us in prayer via the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Life: usccb.org/prayers/litany-blessed-virgin-mary-mother-life
