YOUNG ADULTS ~ Pope Francis Has Your Back!
Yes, your Pope is thinking of you in his just-released encyclical on global warming and the environment.  Go to:

to read what his message means to young adults. Wait for the revolving headline to come up for the article 4 Things Pope Francis Wants You to Know about Climate Change.

   If you are a parent or grandparent of a college student, introduce them to the website. It carries up-to-date news and articles of special interest for young adult Catholics. A great way to help them grow their faith and stay interested in their Church during these critical years!


We have all seen Pope Francis in the headlines regarding the release of his first encyclical.  Don’t just rely on news reports to find out what it’s really about. Read the actual document and learn what the Holy Father wants us to know, to pray about and to act on relative to our environment. The encyclical is available online. Click here to read it.

Have you been coming to Mass at Little Flower but not taken the next step to actually join the parish?  Now is a great time to do that. We are looking to welcome you and give you an opportunity to become active in our emerging activities and ministries as we begin implementation of our new vision.
  Or, perhaps, even though you are not Catholic, you are attending Mass with your family and, on occasion, think you might like to learn more about the faith with the possibility of becoming Catholic.
   Please contact Claire Tenhundfeld at the Office of Mission and Evangelization to talk about what this would involve for you. You can reach Claire at 541-5560 or

St. Therese Little Flower Parish is the sacramental presence of Jesus . . . the mind and heart, the hands and feet, the words and deeds . . . the incarnate and living Body of Christ for our own place and time.

Update on John Boissy
Little Flower received the following note from parishioner John Boissy, who is in the postulancy program for the Franciscans of St. John the Baptist province:

    I have just completed my first year of formation with the Franciscans as a postulant. On June 23 I leave for St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, New York. I will be there for six weeks taking two courses on the history of the Franciscan Order, and on Franciscan charism. Then on August 14 I head to Burlington, Wisconsin for my second year of formation as a novice. That will be a year of prayer to discern if this is the way of life God is calling me to.

 Please pray for John and for all young people discerning their vocation in life.

Most Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About...Consecrated Life
The Year of Consecrated Life

Pope Francis has set aside November 30, 2014 through February 2, 2016 as the Year of Consecrated Life.  Our Archbishop has set the objectives for this celebration in our Archdiocese: to increase the visibility of religious life/consecrated life, to express appreciation, to highlight the joy experienced in this vocational choice, and to educate on the importance of on religious life/consecrated life to the Church.  As one means of learning more about religious life/consecrated life, our website will periodically have an educational component in the form of a question and answer. It is our hope that you will not only read the entries but discuss them your family, friends, co-workers.  And perhaps share stories about the influence of consecrated women and men in your life. 

Who are the consecrated women and men of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati?

Presently the charisms of thirty- four women’s religious communities and twelve men’s religious communities are represented in the Archdiocese; ten religious communities with headquarters here and there are four postulates/novitiates.  The Archdiocese has one contemplative order, the Poor Clares.  There are two Secular Institutes with members in the Archdiocese:  Caritas Christi, the Company of St. Ursula. There is also a Public Association of the Faithful, Regnum Christi; a Private Association of the Faithful, the Children of Mary; Sisters for Christian Community and a Consecrated Virgin Living in the World.  There are approximately 1,125 consecrated women and men in the Archdiocese.

More information on Consecrated Life will be posted periodically, so check back often!
