His Voice 

“But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. Then he said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.” (Luke 24: 37-39). 
The Gospels attest to the reality of the resurrection. Jesus goes to great lengths to assure his disciples that he is no mere ghost or illusion. He shows them the marks of his crucifixion and he explains how the Scriptures foretold his death and rising. 
Are you like the apostles, unbelieving unless you see with your own eyes? 

On the Environment

Earth Day - Wednesday, April 22

"I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill: let us be 'protectors' of creation, protectors of God's plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment." 
- Pope Francis, Inauguration, 3/19/13 

The Catholic Church brings a distinct perspective to the discussion of environmental questions, by lifting up the moral dimensions of these issues and the needs of the most vulnerable among us. This unique contribution is rooted in Catholic teaching calling us to care for creation and for "the least of these." (Mt 25:40) Of particular concern to the Church is how environmental problems and our response to these challenges will affect poor and vulnerable people at home and around the world.

In response to Pope John Paul II's groundbreaking 1990 World Day of Peace message entitled Peace With God the Creator, Peace With All of Creation, the full body of U.S. Catholic bishops adopted their first statement on the environment, Renewing the Earth: An Invitation to Reflection and Action on Environment in Light of Catholic Social Teaching.In this foundational statement the bishops draw attention to the ethical dimensions of the ecological crisis, exploring the link between ecology and poverty and the implications of environmental degradation for human life and dignity.

Building on the commitment made by the U.S. bishops in their 1991 statement Renewing the Earth, the Environmental Justice Program (EJP)  of the USCCB was created in 1993 to educate and motivate Catholics to a deeper reverence and respect for God's creation, and to encourage Catholics to address environmental problems, particularly as they affect poor and vulnerable people. EJP acts as a resource for Catholic dioceses and state Catholic conferences, and through them Catholic parishes.

Carnival Kickoff Meeting

Monday, April 20th at 7:00pm in the Hall

Once again the 2015 St. Bruno Parish Carnival is upon us. I have heard wonderful things about the Carnival here and am excited to see what a great event this is for our Parish. It is the major fundraiser for the parish and takes many volunteer hours to pull off an event of this size. I am very grateful to all who volunteer to help.

I have heard that in the past all ministries/organizations participate in helping to run or assist in the running of the various booths that provide food and games. I would like to invite you or a representative from your ministry/organization to attend the Kickoff Meeting scheduled for Monday, April 20th at 7:00pm in the Hall. Please see where your ministry would best fit in to help. Many hands will lighten the load.

It is with the help of our great volunteers that this event is always so successful. I am truly looking forward to this parish event and I look forward to your continued participating this year.
St. Bruno - Pray for Us!

- Fr. Don Woznicki
We need your help! The Silent Auction booth is a profitable component at the St. Bruno Carnival but without your help the auction would not be possible. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to support our parish and promote a business or organization to the community. Sports and event tickets, museum or amusement park passes, experiences, merchandise, collectibles, etc., are typically wonderful contributions. Here are a few examples of baskets we have included in our Silent Auction.

Stop by the Parish Center and buy a gift card through Scrip and donate it to the Silent Auction! The parish will receive double rewards by earning money for the school though Scrip and supporting the Carnival all at the same time!  

If you are interested in donating an item for the Silent Auction Booth you may drop it off at the Parish Center (Attn: Silent Auction) or click here to email the Silent Auction Chair for more information.
