My how time has flown! Only a month ago we were preparing for the Assembly with great anticipation of what was to come. Now as I write this post I realize that we are marching head on into November with Thanksgiving only a few weeks away. October 25th, 26th, and 27th members of the MSJ (Missionary Society of Saint John) gathered together for the annual assembly at Christ the King. Our topic of study this year was base on and around our patron, Saint John. Each day of the Assembly the congregation prayed the daily offices together as well as attending Mass on Friday, listened to teaching sessions, and enjoyed fellowship with one another. This year we introduced what we hope will become a long standing tradition, following the service of Compline Friday evening we had Benediction. I really can't think of a better way to end the Assembly than in adoration of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament! It was simply breathtaking and beautiful!! Well I could spend days talking about the Assembly. But instead I will go ahead and post some long anticipated pictures of the event.
If you would like more information about the MSJ or would like to attend the Assembly next year please contact Fr. Bob Lemmon, MSJ.

This past Saturday the youth group met at the Church in order to work on cleaning up outside in preparation for the coming MSJ Assembly October 25th-27th. On the agenda was cleaning up the prayer walk as well as the walk down to the waterfall. Oh, and did I mention, building up a pile for the annual bonfire! The group worked for several hours before agreeing that the walks were in good order and the pile was sufficiently stacked up to a reasonable height.

This past weekend our church youth group took a trip to Tullahoma, Tennessee to participate in a weekend retreat with others who attend the annual Saint Michael's Conference Midwest. The group drove down Friday afternoon and drove home Sunday afternoon after attending Mass. It was a weekend packed with prayer, fun, and a little bit of work. Over the course of the weekend they attended Benediction, Evensong for St. Michael and All Angels Day, Compline both evenings, as well as Mass on Sunday. Saturday they helped with cleaning the church they were visiting, and went to a fall festival. The youth group as a whole voted it was a weekend well spent and look forward to the coming Saint Michael's Conference Midwest 2019! For more information on the Conference contact Fr. Bob Lemmon and he will get you in touch with someone from the conference.
