Dear Ladies of TASTE,

What a wonderful day we had on Thursday as we started our 13th year of TASTE!  We were so pleased that Fr. Lickteig dropped by to encourage us and give us a priestly blessing.  Fr. Larry provided an inspirational message to get us fired up to "Live our Catholic Faith in a Secular World."  Our chapel was completely filled with TASTE sisters eager to grow in the faith.  We are thrilled that 159 women are registered for TASTE, but there is always room for more!

This week at TASTE

  • We welcome local Catholic author, KEVIN WELLS who will speak from his recently published book, The Priests We Need to Save the Church.
  • Listen to FR. LARRY'S TALK
  • Attached to this email are the REFLECTION QUESTIONS Questions from last week.

Special Prayer Request

  • Beverly Simmons for a speedy recovery after surgery last Thursday.

Special Reminders

  • Cash and food donations will be accepted for the Sisters of the Servants of the Lord who help in our TASTE for TOTs childcare each week.  They have a large convent and are greatly blessed by the assistance we provide them.
  • Enrollment in TASTE is ongoing through the year, so you can continue to invite friends and family.  Before you leave TASTE next week, pick up a few TASTE postcards that you can use to share the word!
  • Our small groups are designed to provide a place for each of us to both share our joys and wrestle with the challenges of living our Christian faith.  All of us are on a personal journey to our Lord and the Deposit of Faith of the Catholic Church is our true and steady guide!  We are so very blessed!
