Amoris Laetitia

July 19, 7:30-9:00 p.m.

Conference Room

Our Holy Father Pope Francis published an
Apostolic Exhortation titled Amoris Laetitia
(The Joy of Love: On Love in the Family) on
March 19, 2016, as his authoritative teaching
following the 2015 World Synod of Bishops on
the Family. Our parish is having a discussion group on this
important instruction by Pope Francis. It is beautiful teaching
on living the Sacrament of Matrimony and on Christian family
life. Our next meeting is July 19, 7:30-9:00pm in the
Conference Room. The text that we are using is the edition
published by The Word Among Us Press, which can be
obtained at The Sycamore Tree. At our meeting on July 19, we
will be discussing #257-278 of the document, using the
discussion questions #9, 1-3 found on pages 265-266. All are
welcome. Facilitated by Father Gregory.

Let’s Make Incarnation Green!

The Green Team is experimenting with different ways to compost garden and food ministry waste by using Black Bear Composting Service. Black Bear takes away our garden and food scraps and they bring back nutrition filled compost for the gardens and grounds of Incarnation.
Do you know what composting is and how it helps the environment? Click here for a short video of how you can help to prevent landfills from being filled with food waste.
Are you interested in composting at home?
You can reduce your trash by 33%! Contact Eric from Black Bear Composting. If you have any questions or concerns or you want to join the Green Team in making Incarnation eco-friendly, simply reply to this email.

 

Wine Sunday

Approximately four times per year, we ask each parish household to help replenish the supply of wine used at Masses, by donating a bottle of red wine. You may bring it when you come to Mass, or drop it off at the parish office through the week between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. We ask that you do not bring white, blush, or rosé wines. You may also wish to offer a monetary donation for the purchase of sacramental wine. In that case you can make a check payable to the Church of the Incarnation re: Sacramental Wine. Thank you!

Help Needed- Sunday Fellowship Ministry 

We take turns hosting coffee & donuts after the 9:00 and 11:30 a.m. Liturgy. This involves picking up the donut order at Dunkin’ Donuts, preparing lemonade and coffee, and serving those snacks after Mass. When we have only a few ministers, you’ll notice weeknds when we don’t have coffee & donuts after Mass. This is a sign that we need you! Your time commitment is one-half hour before and after Mass one Sunday per month. If you would like to join this ministry, please call Laure Taylor at 434-434-0148. We will pair you  up with someone who will guide you through the process! 

TNT- July 14- Alive

We marvel at how God’s mercy, presence, and
grace breaks in to the lives of ordinary people
in good times and in crisis. That is what we
see in the films that we view and discuss at our
parish TNT (Theater ‘N’ Theology). Our next
TNT takes place on Friday, July 14, beginning
promptly at 7:00pm. All are welcome to come
to our Incarnation Movie Theater (the “Stone
Chapel”) with comfortable seating and large
projection. After the movie (the “Theology” part), we discuss
the film’s relevance to our life in Christ and note the action of
God’s mercy. Our July feature is the 1993 film Alive!. It’s
about the rugby team that survived 72 days in the Andes
Mountains when their plane crashed on its way from Uruguay
to Chile. It is a movie that is physically impressive beyond the
astonishing particulars of its story. Unquestionably the most
chilling portrayal of a plane crash in movie history. Starring
Ethan Hawke and Vincent Spano. Rated R. Facilitated by
Fr. Gregory. All are welcome. Come watch a great movie with
your brothers and sisters in Christ!
