FROM OUR PASTOR
Every year it is our privilege to participate in the Mission Cooperative Plan of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. This year and this weekend our missionary preacher is Fr. Vincent Antie of the Diocese of Jasikan, Ghana. Supporting the missions is both a right and a duty of all Catholics. As the Servant of God, the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen, a former head of the Propagation of the Faith in our country would often tell us, “Some give to the Missions by going, some go to the Missions by giving”. We pray, the, for both kinds of givers, but especially for those who generously answer the call to go to the Missions, so that Jesus Christ is preached to every creature.
-- Rev. Christopher R. Armstrong
MISSIONARY COOPERATION PLAN 2009
Ghana has a stable, democratically elected government and the ability to feed itself, which has made it possible for the Church to concentrate on development and evangelization, resulting in significant growth. Please be generous in supporting this fledgling Diocese. Fr. Vincent Antie, of the Diocese of Jasikan, will speak at this weekend Masses on June 6-7TH.

A partial list of the accomplishments made by our graduating eighth graders is as follows: 17 first honors all year, 29 first honors at least once, 12 first and second honors all year, 3 second honors all year, 5 Math Counts Competition Team members, 21 Speech Contest Participants, 7 Spelling Bee participants, 2 Geography Bee participants, 3 American Institute of Architects competition team participants (won first place), 4 It’s Academic team participants (2nd place in competition), 6 students I know of asked to skip honors Algebra I (we added one since last column), and 17 Marion Awards. Marion Awards, Math Counts and all the other accolades don’t just happen. All of the above were a direct result of dedicated people taking an interest in our students. I want to thank all the adult volunteers who generously gave of their time. Without you we could not sustain the excellence that St. Antoninus School is known for.

HOLY SPIRIT PRAYER GROUP
The Catechism tells us that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are granted to us in order that we may cooperate in the salvation of others. Often, we ignore the spiritual gift of evangelist because we don’t want to be “different.” It was once asked, “If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” Mark Mussman will speak on this important gift of evangelist and the many ways that you can use it in your daily life. The salvation of someone you love could depend on you! In Chapel, Tuesday,7:30 PM.
