July 2011 Month dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus

+JMJ We are now in the Ordinary Time of the Church year and the full swing of summer time! We have taken this month away from the parish in order to complete work on the outside of our convent home, which continues to be under construction interiorly. The painting of the side fences has been completed, the back fence torn down and a concrete curb installed in preparation for the new fence, which will be installed in the coming week. Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped us get all of this done. May the Lord bless them for their generosity in time and manual labor! We hope by the end of the month to have sprinklers installed in the back and front yards and ready for lawns to be planted.

Sister Mary Rose will be leaving for World Youth Day (WYD) in Madrid, Spain August 11th with the Ventura pilgrimage group of local parishes. Sister Mary Joseph will remain in Ventura uniting in prayer and keeping vigilance over the convent construction. If any of you have prayer intentions that you would like remembered in the World Youth Day Pilgrimage, please email them to Sister Mary Rose at the Handmaids email address: handmaidsjmj@gmail.com Also, any donations you may be inspired to give towards this WYD Pilgrimage may be made to and sent to: The Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, PO Box 2957, Ventura, CA 93002, USA.

We continue to pray for all who ask for our prayers and unite them with our Lord in the Paschal Mystery of the Mass celebrated today and everyday throughout the world, throughout all time, together praying the Mystical Mass Prayer and our hour of Adoration with the Mystical Rosary daily. May this month of July be a time of spiritual renewal as we continue to turn to “the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages… consubstantial with the Father.” United in love and prayers…
