Mission and Outreach: Mission in Bolivia

Join Saint Michael and All Angels Mission and Outreach Ministry on August 14 during the Adult Formation hour in welcoming Mr. Chris King, Executive Director of Amistad Mission.  Chris will be here to tell us all about what happens at Amistad Mission in Cochabamba, Bolivia and how Saint Michael and All Angels Parish is a vital part of supporting Amistad Mission and the children that live there.

Following the 11:00AM services, parishioners interested in learning more about the pilgrimage trip to Amistad Mission are invited to join us for a luncheon in the Coke Activities Room.  The luncheon is open to any parishioner interested in learning more about Amistad Mission, how you can be involved as a pilgrim, or as a prayer partner.  Please RSVP for the luncheon by sending an email to Maria D'Antoni.

Travel to Amistad Mission in October

Missioners to Amistad Mission experience the grace of God's love through the lives of the children that we meet.  After her first trip to Amistad Mission Kelly Reddell writes about a moment in which she saw God's grace at work:

I will forever remember the beautifully simple celebration for the Feast of St. Michael, which was held in Casa San Miguel.  After the service, there was a birthday party for one of the little boys, new to the casa.  As he stood at the table with a birthday cake for him, and everyone singing Feliz Cumpleanos, he began to cry. Never before had he experienced a celebration for his life.  He had never had a birthday cake. This is the family of Amistad, embracing their new member with God’s love. 

Join Saint Michael and All Angels in a trip to Amistad Mission in October 2016 and experience God's grace in surprising ways!

Please join us for a delicious fried catfish dinner prepared by Chef Bob Jenkins and a host of volunteers at St. James on the Lake benefiting Kairos #55 at the Beto Unit.  This dinner is scheduled for 6 p.m., August 25. Tea will be provided or bring your own beer or wine.

The Kairos #55 weekend will be led by Bill Shehee with several Cedar Creek area residents also serving on the team.  In lieu of ticket sales for the dinner, we are accepting donations to the Kairos Prison Ministry-Beto that evening or in advance.  100 percent of the donations received for the dinner will go to help offset the costs of the weekend at the unit (approximately $22,000), so please prayerfully consider what size donation you will give for a great meal and an opportunity to help bring God’s message of love, forgiveness, and hope to the Beto inmates who will be participating in the weekend.

Space is limited to 125, so reservations must be made in advance by email to .   If you have any questions, call at 214-532-9819.
