The diocese has advised us, because of the “Flu-Season,” it may be unwise to distribute the Eucharist in both Species, namely in the form of THE PRECIOUS BLOOD. It is natural to assume that shaking hands can transmit the Flu, too. For the time being here at St. Anthony, we will be refraining from distributing The Chalice and advising that maybe you might not shake hands at the “Sign of Peace.” Maybe we can wave or bow. Let us keep each other safe. – Fr. JB

Year of Prayer for Priestly Vocations
PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
God, our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that you inspire those in our Diocese whom you are calling to the priesthood to courageously follow Your will. Send laborers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Please personally encourage men to consider a vocation to the priesthood.

Prayer Blanket Ministry
Early this summer as our news across the country continued to be filled with our police men and woman being shot at, injured or killed. Teresa Winkler of our Prayer Blanket Ministry wanted to do something for our Taylor Mill Police Force. So after purchasing the material, Debbie Chiarelli, also of the Prayer Blanket Ministry, volunteered to embroider all the names and ranks of all the men and woman on the Taylor Mill Police force and 3 Kenton County Sheriffs onto the prayer blanket. The Prayer Blanket Ministry then met last week to assemble the Prayer Blankets making them with prayers for the men and woman who serve our city. Father Cushing then blessed the blankets and they were delivered to the Taylor Mill Police Department. The blankets were beautiful when completed.
Please continue prayer, not only for the Taylor Mill Police force, but for the safety of all of our men and woman who serve and protect us.
