• Revisiting the meaning of the Eucharist: Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, calls us to serious reflection on the Eucharist and how to put God at the center of the Liturgy. His interview from last week may provide insightful reflection as we continue to seek to transform our parishes into vibrant centers of conversion and discipleship.

• Update on Camp GLOW : This year, the Office of Special Needs Ministry has added JAM TIME to the Camp GLOW program, a series of music-oriented activities for participants presented by Beth Rausch. Session One is completely full and there is limited space for sessions Two and Three. Register your parishioners now!

• Married men vs. single men: Men who get married work harder and more strategically. Do you agree? Brad Wilcox, a sociologist at the University of Virginia, presents some enthralling facts that show how marriage affects men and their family life in a positive way. Care to mention this video during your next marriage prep session?
