A Word From The Pastor
Vacation Bible School: Looking for some fun activities for your kids this summer? If yes, then let us come together for our Vacation Bible School here at Precious Blood from the 25th of this month to the 29th. Monday to Friday, 8. 30 am till noon. in the Parish Hall, for children in Pre-K to 6th Grade. Many churches host these events each summer. They are wonderful events to work at, for you get to see the lives of many kids come to know Jesus. Kids will participate in Bible-learning activities, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, make treats and more. Family members and friends are encouraged to join in daily. Teaching kids about Jesus’ message of salvation is why VBS programs were created. If you want to reach kids for Christ, VBS is the best way to do it!” Breakfast will be served at 8:30a.m. and lunch at 11:30 a.m. These meal are being offered to any children under 18 through the Catholic School System Feeding Program.
Patron of Youth: St Aloysius Gonzaga was born on March 9, 1568. His dad was the Duke of Mantua, Prince of the Roman Empire. He was expected to become a great statesman and soldier. At his early age Aloysius absorbed in matters of spiritual. He expressed his desire to enter into the religious life to which his dad vehemently opposed. It took him three years to obtain his parents’ permission and at the age of 17 he went to Rome to enter the Jesuit novitiate. Aloysius had already developed his life of prayer and a continuous union with God. He spent hours in prayer every day. In 1590 a great famine broke out in Italy followed by pestilence, the Jesuits opened an emergency hospital, and Aloysius solicited alms and tended the sick. But in March 1591 he himself took ill and succumbed on June 21st, after three months of patient suffering, aged hardly 23 and a Jesuit for only six years. He was canonized in 1796 and was declared the special protector and patron of youth, especially of young Catholic students. As we celebrate his feast on June 21st let us seek his intercession for our Youth that they may always have a deep love for Christ.
Vultures and Hummingbirds: When both the hummingbird and the vultures fly over the land both look for things different. All vultures see is rotting meat, because that is what they look for. They thrive on that diet. But hummingbirds ignore the smelly flesh of dead animals. Instead, they look for the colorful blossoms of desert plants. The vultures live on what was. They live on the past. They fill themselves with what is dead and gone. But hummingbirds live on what is. They seek new life. They fill themselves with freshness and life. Each bird finds what it is looking for. We all do. Good and bad exist side by side; but we find only what we are looking for. Let us always look for goodness and life within us and people around us. Let us leave the past, any hurt feelings, anger or anything that we are holding on to. Let us live each day to the fullest.
Birthday Greeting: Inspirational speaker Dr Wayne Dyer still remembers the card his kids gave him for his 64th birthday. The front said, Inside is a message from God. Pleased they finally appreciated his work – he opened it to read, “See you soon”

Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 17, 2018
Like the sower in today's Gospel, I scatter as seed my gifts of time, talent and resources; and I trust that, by God's grace and in God's time, these small gifts of myself may grow and flourish and help to bring about the Kingdom of God.
