LOVE AND RESPONSIBILITY
BIBLE STUDY FOR YOUNG ADULTS
Love and Responsibility, the exciting event that started in Nashville last Summer, is back! We saw an average of 80 young Catholics in their 20s and 30s come together each week to study Church teaching on Theology of the Body. It was a great opportunity to be formed in our Catholic faith and build community with other vibrant young Catholics in Nashville. This year we're venturing into Jeff Cavins' Bible Study Timeline. We will dig into salvation history to better understand what God wants to reveal to us through Sacred Scripture. The whole program is 24 sessions, and we will start with eight Wednesday night sessions July 30th-Sep. 17th. It will take place at the Cathedral, Room #304, from 7:30-9:00 p.m.

LETTER FROM BISHOP STIKA OF KNOXVILLE
Although the November elections are still months away, I wish to commend the efforts of those who are endeavoring to educate the people of Tennessee on a ballot measure which is neither a Republican nor Democrat issue but a moral and life issue of the greatest magnitude that I hope everyone will support—Amendment One.
Although the Church will never identify itself with any political community or system, we can and we must speak up in support of moral issues such as those Amendment One represents.
Amendment One is a pro-life amendment that would neutralize the extreme interpretation taken by the Tennessee State Supreme Court in 2000 in which they declared that our State Constitution guarantees the right to an abortion. Passage of this Amendment would restore back to the voter the "life" decision that was taken from them by the Court decision.
For these reasons I, and my brother Bishops in Nashville and Memphis, wholeheartedly support efforts to promote "Yes on 1" this November."
Most Reverend Richard F. Stika
Bishop of Knoxville
For more information please contact: Tony K. Grubbs: Knights of Columbus #544 firstname.lastname@example.org / 615-970-8113
Eucharistic Adoration will take place this Sunday from Noon to 4:30 p.m. Please take a moment of your day to come and spend time
with the Lord.

It has been a centuries long tradition to have a Mass said for loved ones and friends when they pass away or on the anniversary of their death, or to request a Mass for the special intention of someone or a couple on a special day (anniversary/birthday), or if they are in special need of prayer. A typical donation for a Mass intention $10. We try to honor the date you wish the Mass to be said. The Intention is published in the Bulletin (see page 1), and a special card is mailed to the family of the deceased or to the person for whom the Mass is being said with the Mass's date and time and with the name of the person requesting the Mass. Consider making a Mass request. Your request may be up to a year in advance. For more information call Lindsey in the Parish Office (327-2330) or email email@example.com.
