In case you missed it: Update on Fr. Carucci’s Health
As many of you are aware, Father Carucci has been facing a serious health problem for some time now. The condition is known as IgA nephropathy. A detailed description of this condition can be found on the Mayo Clinic web page at https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/iga-nephropathy/symptoms-causes/syc-20352268.
Because this disease has a hereditary component, and Father Carucci’s father, Deacon Michael Carucci, also suffered from this disease, his family members (the best candidates for organ donation), are ineligible to be transplant donors.
Over the last year, many of you have asked how to help Fr. Carucci. Please begin by continuing to pray for him. He has been approved for a kidney transplant at UAB medical center. UAB works with three different types of donors: deceased donors, live donors and donor pairs. If you would like more information regarding the living donor and paired donor processes, please visit www.uabmedicine.org/transplant/living-donor-program or call 888-822-7892.

Our next intergenerational family event, focusing on the events of Holy Week, is March 18 at 9:00 a.m.

We need the following help – we would especially like to invite our Catholic School Families to get involved as this is a perfect opportunity to build community with fellow parishioners:

  • 1 – 2 Coordinators to lead in organizing and overseeing the event.
  • 1 – 2 Drama Leaders to prepare costumes and to recruit event participants to take part in the Agony in the Garden Drama and to rehearse with them
  • up to 10 Activity Leaders – click here: 10 Activity Centers for details of each activity. As an activity leader you would coordinate materials in advance (many of which are available in the RE building) and facilitate during the event.

For more details visit the following pages:

Kairos
The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen.

On April 19 – 22 Kairos Team #65 will be going to G.K. Fountain Prison in Atmore, AL. We go there to bring the love of God and the light of Christ into the prison. As an army of volunteers from many different churches, we go to become the hands and feet of Christ for 42 inmates who come seeking a new way of life. Kairos is a ministry of love – God’s love! This ministry focuses on bringing His love to the inmates and to the prison officials who work with them.

When you did it (visited the prisoner on my behalf) to the least of these, you did it unto me. Matthew 25:40

You too can be part of this ministry.

“Oh, I can’t go into the prison,” you say to yourself. Well, yes, you can in several different ways. In Kairos anyone can be a prison minister for Christ! Some people actually go into the prison to work directly with the inmates while others make home-cooked meals in a local church. Others make cookies at home, and still others make financial contributions to the ministry or make posters or placemats or write letters that express the love of God for even the unlovable.

Handmade placemats or letters from children (no last names, please) are a powerful tool of the Holy Spirit that can break open a lifetime of sorrow. I know from personal observation how powerful these letters can be to open the hardened hearts of many of the inmates, bringing them to tears, tears that haven’t been shed for many years.

COOKIES, COOKIES, COOKIES!
Yes, that’s another way you can be part of this Kairos ministry. We will take hundreds of dozens of cookies to the prisoners and to the guards as well. You ought to see the inmates gobble them up. While many of the inmates will tell you that they signed up to attend the weekend for the food and cookies, by Friday evening or Saturday morning, most if not all will have experienced the love of Christ in a very special way.

So how do you want to participate in this Kairos weekend? If it is baking cookies or writing letters or making placemats, please have them ready for pickup at the church by the 18th of April. If you would like to be part of a prayer vigil, choose any hour or combination of times throughout the weekend. A prayer list will be available for you to sign in the Narthex. We start on Thursday at 4PM and continue through Sunday till 6PM.

Gathering and training dates for the Kairos weekend in April are as follows:

  • February 17
  • March 3, 17, 31
  • April 14 (at Kaiser Center)

Contact Deacon Walt Howard at home at (251) 463-5146 or by e-mail at walter_howard.
