Cover Them with the Warmth of Love!

The Network of Care Health Ministry of Our Lady of the Valley has lots of beautiful yarn that was donated to make prayer shawls or lap blankets for those who are homebound or in care facilities. If you know how to knit or crochet this is such a simple but very meaningful thing you can do for our homebound parishioners. We want them to know they are loved and cared for by their parish! All we ask you to do is say a pray before you start to stitch for the person that receives your gift of Love!

Please pray about it and if you are interested call the Parish Office.

God bless you for considering this!

“Zoom” Bible Study

With Fr. Tom DiFolco, frequent Mass celebrant at our parish

On the Wednesdays of December and January, Father Tom DiFolco will be conducting a one-hour Bible Study on Zoom. Each Wednesday at 12 Noon, Father Tom will address one or more of the Bible passages to be heard at Mass on the following Sunday. Participation in this Bible Study promises to make the experience of the Word of God at Mass on the Lord’s Day so much more enriching. Everyone is welcome to participate.

To register call Maggie Jackson at St. Michael Parish, Sharonville – 513-563-6377, ext. 307.

You will receive a weekly email with the link to the week’s Zoom room. Fr Tom usually offers the Bible Study for two months, then takes a one-month break before resuming another two-month series. Bring your Bible and an open heart to experience the Lord’s Day Word more deeply and completely.
