West Side Young Adult Ministry

This ministry is for those aged 18-40 years old (have graduated high school) who are seeking to live a deeper and fuller life, and to grow in fellowship with those in similar stages of life.  This ministry is put on by the efforts of three parishes: St. James, St. John the Baptist (Dry Ridge), and St. John Neumann.  We meet every Tuesday evening at St. John the Baptist Church, starting August 30.  All meetings start at 7:00 pm, except the 4th Tuesday of the month it will start at 6:30 pm.  We learn about our faith and life, and then go out for fellowship after to a local eatery. You can check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/YAWCincy.  If you are interested or know somebody who is, please contact Nic Kovatch at 741-5325 or nkovatch@stjameswhiteoak.com.

Chicken Dinner 2016










Thank you to the members of the Fundraising Committee, the workers, and those who donated desserts or basket raffle items. You once again made the Chicken Dinner a success! Thanks again for all of your hard work! You continue the spirit that has always been part of Little Flower Parish.

Welcome!

Have you been coming to Mass or other activities at Little Flower, but are not actually a member? Are you concerned that “signing up” will require something of you that you are not yet ready for? For some folks, joining a parish can be a big deal. You don’t know if the community is a good fit for you. Or, you don’t know very many of the people, and would feel more comfortable if there were someone to tell you about what kind of community this is and how to fit in. 

   Do any of these realities describe your questions about becoming more invested in Little Flower Parish? If you would like to talk with someone about becoming a member, but don’t want to be pressured if it doesn’t feel right for you, why not contact our Office of Mission and Evangelization and arrange for an informal meeting at your convenience to discuss what you are seeking and what Little Flower might have to offer you. Contact Claire Tenhundfeld at 541-5560 or clairetlf@zoomtown.com.

 

Mission Statement:
We are a community of evangelizing disciples being transformed by the Gospel in order to transform our parish, our neighborhood and our world.

We will do this by cultivating faith formation, participating in spirit-filled worship, fostering stewardship, and reaching out in the name of Jesus to those in need.

Vision Statement:
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.

Year of Mercy

On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis officially proclaimed the opening of the “Year of Mercy”. The logo and the motto together provide a fitting summary of what the Jubilee Year is all about. The motto Merciful Like the Father (taken from the Gospel of Luke, 6:36) serves as an invitation to follow the merciful example of the Father who asks us not to judge or condemn but to forgive and to give love and forgiveness without measure (cfr. Lk 6:37-38). 

   The logo – the work of Jesuit Father Marko I. Rupnik – presents a small summa theologiae of the theme of mercy. In fact, it represents an image quite important to the early Church: that of the Son having taken upon his shoulders the lost soul demonstrating that it is the love of Christ that brings to completion the mystery of his incarnation culminating in redemption. The logo has been designed in such a way so as to express the profound way in which the Good Shepherd touches the flesh of humanity and does so with a love with the power to change one’s life. One particular feature worthy of note is that while the Good Shepherd, in his great mercy, takes humanity upon himself, his eyes are merged with those of man. Christ sees with the eyes of Adam, and Adam with the eyes of Christ. Every person discovers in Christ, the new Adam, one’s own humanity and the future that lies ahead, contemplating, in his gaze, the love of the Father.
 
  The scene is captured within the so called mandorla (the shape of an almond), a figure quite important in early and medieval iconography, for it calls to mind the two natures of Christ, divine and human. The three concentric ovals, with colors progressively lighter as we move outward, suggest the movement of Christ who carries humanity out of the night of sin and death. Conversely, the depth of the darker color suggests the impenetrability of the love of the Father who forgives all.
