Donna Wassmuth Cottonwood 962-3561

— Fall semester for That Man Is You (TMIY), titled “A Light to the Nations,” begins at 6: a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Cottonwood KC Hall. There will be 13 sessions in the fall and 13 in the spring. This is the third year of a three-year program. Light to the Nations takes men on a journey into an important reality: “The family has been placed at the heart of the great struggle between good and evil, between life and death and between love and all that is opposed to love.” It is modeled on the story of Job from the Old Testament. The year considers man in his relationship to his spouse. This is a new session. Each semester stands alone. Whether you have attended before or not, any man 18 years and older is encouraged to attend. Even if you can’t attend every session, don’t hesitate to attend. Breakfast will be served, followed by a video and small group discussion. Spread the word. Contact Max Nuxoll at 507-1058. Let me know if you plan to attend so I can add you to the distribution list.

Mass time will change to 5 p.m., Saturday evening for Assumption Parish on Sept. 10. Holy Cross Church in Keuterville will have the 7 p.m. Mass for two more Sundays. There will be a dessert function following the final summer Mass on Sept. 11, at Holy Cross Hall, hosted by Holy Cross Guild. Bring a dessert to share if you like, otherwise just come and enjoy!

Registration for Preschool Catechesis of the Good Shepherd classes is now open. Classes will begin the first week in October. Registration forms are located at the entrance of each church. Email Heather with any questions

An Engaged Encounter Weekend will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the Monastery of St. Gertrude. All engaged couples are required to attend an EE weekend prior to the wedding date. The next retreat will be held in January 2017. Brochures and registration information are available at the parish office, or on the website:
