Beginning June 26th- Deacons are Among us!

We are welcoming 2 more Deacons to Dearborn County beginning June 26th- Deacon Mark Schmidl and Deacon Kevin Daily along with Deacon Bob Decker, who has been in the County since 2014 at All Saints Parish.  The Deacons, especially our newly ordained Dcn. Kevin and Dcn. Mark will assist at all four parishes "in solidum."  Please include these holy men in your prayers as they serve throughout the county.

The role of a deacon will be explained from the pulpit and in upcoming bulletin articles.  However, in a practical way, our deacons will be:  

~performing all baptisms outside of Mass.

~performing all weddings outside of Mass.

~performing all funerals outside of Mass.

~performing all funeral rosaries/wakes.

~Assisting with baptismal prep (visiting and blessing homes) and marriage prep.

Fr. Mahan and Fr. Meyer will cease doing baptisms, weddings and funerals outside the context of Holy Mass.  Since we have Deacons, their work, service and worship will be used and appreciated!

More Opportunities for Adoration Coming to Our Parishes

Times will be 9AM-9PM: Tuesdays - St Lawrence; Wednesdays - St Teresa; Thursdays - St Mary - With this blessing comes responsibility - we will need at least 2 committed weekly adorers each hour, for each location.  We will also continue the 12 Hours of Adoration and Confession the third Friday of each month at St. Mary’s, restarting in August.  This means in a typical month, we will have 156 hours of adoration offered at our home parishes of St. Lawrence, St. Teresa, and St. Mary’s.

Military Appreciation Project (MAP) 
All four Dearborn County Catholic Parishes are starting a new ministry to help our military members feel connected and appreciated by their parish. These men and women leave their home and community and are stationed all over the map. Michaela Spangler, a parish member of All Saints and Senior at EC, is starting MAP Ministry to send care packages for birthdays and holidays to the active duty military of our parishes as part of her Gold Award for Girl Scouts. We want our active military men and women to know that their home parish has not forgotten them, and that we appreciate their sacrifice and dedication to our country. There are three components to get this new ministry opportunity off the ground:1. If you have a son or daughter who is currently serving in the military, we would like to know so that we can include them. Please send an email to mic6of6@gmail.com. We are also accepting monetary donations to go towards this project. All donations can be sent to the Parish Office. Please specify that the donation is for MAP.3. Michaela is getting this ministry off the ground but new volunteers will be needed to continue it once she goes away to college. Please pray about getting involved and email mic6of6@gmail.com if you would like to help continue her efforts.​

Fr. Meyer joined Marc Tuttle and Kent Blandford on Indy Catholic Radio for a look at the ever changing role of men in parish and family life in anticipation of the E6 Catholic Men's Conference. Here is a link to the podcast.
