Agape Ministry is calling all Leads! As most of you know, Agape is a time of fellowship following Sunday's 8:30am Mass. It's a great way to bring parishioners together, welcome new members, and fuel the kids before they head to class. The Pastoral Council suggested that each ministry sign up to host one Agape a year to provide an opportunity to promote your ministry and be more visible to the folks who may not be aware of all that you do behind the scenes.
Hosting consists of the following:
Have your members sign up to bring snack items (donuts, muffins, savory items, cookies, etc.) and drinks (orange juice, juice boxes, lemonade, etc.). Have them deliver the items to the kitchen before Mass.
Have everyone meet in the kitchen following Closing Prayer to prepare to serve. Weather permitting, we will bring the items outside. Otherwise, when Mass ends, we will bring out the tables of refreshments and set up in the multipurpose hall.
Serve and clean up.
If you would like to sign up, please click on this link. Any questions - please contact email@example.com.

Most Merciful Jesus I thank you with all my heart for giving me Yourself in this Holy Eucharist; body, blood, soul and divinity.
May this precious gift enlighten me with the power to be your Mercy.
O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.
Most Merciful Father,
We thank You for Your unconditional love and infinite mercy. We turn to You with grateful hearts for bringing us from far and near and uniting us as Your loving family.
We pray for your blessing and guidance as we continue to build your Kingdom at Mercy parish. Give us a spirit of cooperation, and a generous sacrificial heart. May all those who support this mission find Your constant protection. Inflame us with the fire of your love so that we may become instruments of your Mercy to all Your creation. Humbly we pray through the intercession of our Blessed Mother and Your Beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord
Most Merciful Jesus -- Have Mercy on us.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart ... I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
