Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time I am the bread of life! Jesus asks his followers to believe in him in order to have life. God the Father fed the Israelites as they wandered in the desert and enabled them to reach the Promised Land. The Father then sent his Son to become the Bread of Life and nourish the faithful with his body. When we partake of the Eucharistic meal, we acknowledge the food we receive, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. This Bread of Life nourishes us to provide strength for our journey to the Kingdom of the Father. May we grow in faith and love each time we eat at the Lord's table.

Prayer in Action Misson Opportunity for High School Students 2015

There will be three weeks of Prayer and Action:  June 14-19 (Garden City); July 5-10 (Saint John); July 26-31(Ness City). Registration opened for Prayer and Action for Summer 2015 in the Diocese of Dodge City March 6th.

There will be links to register at the open web page or you may contact: Father Charles Mazouch, preferably at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or 620-793-0114, or PO Box 8, Olmitz, KS 67564.

Prayer and Action provides meaningful opportunities to high school aged students and their adult leaders to do mission work right here within the boundaries of our own diocese.  Prayer and Action sessions last five days, with students arriving on a Sunday evening and then staying until the next Friday morning.  Throughout the week the students will paint, clean, do yard work, and perform other meaningful tasks, for the poor, handicapped, and the elderly.  The students will spend the week in an atmosphere, free of distractions, which will foster their faith, ideas of service, and love of Catholic values.  Each session will also allow them to get to know other high school students from other parts of the diocese who share in their Catholic beliefs.

The Prayer and Action experience will be facilitated by the mission team that will consist of a seminarian, as well as other dynamic young adults.  This team will meet the students and adult leaders on Sunday evening and guide all participants through the week.  There are approximately 30 participants in each session.  Thank you to the local contacts who are helping make this happen.  Students’ housing for the week will be located at parishes, sleeping in sleeping bags or on air mattresses throughout the week.  Food preparations will also be taken care of at the housing site by the students, adult leaders, and mission team.  Every parish within the diocese is invited to bring high school students to participate in the program.  Prayer and Action also asks that for every eight youth, one adult leader also attend.  Adult leaders need to comply with Diocesan Safe Environment policies (background check and Protecting God’s Children Session).  They will share the same experience as the youth and are asked to be positive role models throughout the week’s activities.

Cheyenne Becker from Pratt and Michaela Gleason from Meade are students at K State and are leading up our Diocesan effort at Prayer and Action for Summer 2015.  Videos are available featuring Cheyenne and Michaela sharing their passion for Prayer and Action at  They are also willing to come to your parish and especially your youth group to share about Prayer and Action and invite participation.

The fee for each participant (youth and adult) is $100.00 for the week.

SH/HCSchool Celebrates Catholic Schools Week PDF Print E-mail

This year's theme was "Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service." In just three words, this theme expresses what Catholic schools are all about.  We teach our students faith, not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God.  We hold them to high academic standards and do everything we can to help students reach their full potential.  We aso teach them how to serve, both as a way to express their faith and to become good citizens.

Please join me in saying thank you to those who help make our school a success: our teachers, staff, board members, parents, and volunteers.  Through their dedication and commitment, our students are learning in a culture of faith, academics, and service that is preparing them for a full life in their families, communities, and the Catholic Church.
