Dear Sisters & Brothers in Christ,
In case you are unaware, our Jubilee Banquet has been scheduled for September 8th, at the Clayton Plaza Hotel. I hope you are as excited as I am about celebrating this milestone in our Parish's history. As a Parish, we have come a long way and undergone some amazing transitions since those three Redemptorist Brothers started digging a big hole on the corner of Cook & Grand. No one could deny that The Rock has had a big impact on the spiritual lives of the people of St. Louis; from the launch of the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help to our current spirit-filled liturgies. I hope you are planning to attend because we certainly have a lot to celebrate!
One of the things we will be doing at the banquet is awarding several Pillars of The Rock Awards to people who have made a significant impact in St. Louis. You will find a copy of the nomination form within today's bulletin. Since there are a number of categories you will need several of these forms if you want to nominate someone for each category. You will find more copies at the Usher's table. You can also copy this one, or download a copy from our website, which should be up later this week. Please take note of the deadline and be sure to get your nominees in early.
One other reminder, don't forget about the Pilgrimage of Trust next weekend. There will be four days of prayer, workshops, community building and a march on Sunday afternoon. Go to: pilgrimageoftruststl.com
In the Redeemer,
