Message from Fr Dominic

Dear Friends, I wish to express my gratitude and love to you all for your support, sacrifices, and ongoing witness throughout the past year. As I make this transition, kindly be assured of my prayers for you all and ask that you please keep me in your prayers. You are certainly blessed to have Fr David as your administrator. His presence and many gifts will be a blessing to your community. Thank you and God bless in JMJ. Amen.  -Fr Dominic 

2020 DDF 
This weekend, we will be conducting our Diocesan Development Fund Campaign. I know some of you are suffering financially and may not be able to contribute this year. However, if you are able to contribute, we ask that you consider a pledge. If those parishioners who are able to contribute would give a little more, it could make up for those fellow parishioners who are not able to donate this year. All of our registered households should have received a DDF mailing by now. If you have not received the mailing, please call Tammy Stander at 417-866-0841. She will mail you the information. Please review the materials. We are stressing participation. We need for all of us to work together, especially this year. Every gift helps. Please prayerfully consider assisting the diocese in funding the many ministries it provides for our parish and the other 85 parishes and missions in southern Missouri.

                         Este fin de semana, realizaremos nuestra Campaña del Fondo de Desarrollo Diocesano. Sé que algunos de ustedes están sufriendo financieramente y es posible que no puedan contribuir este año. Sin embargo, si puede contribuir, le pedimos que considere una promesa. Si los feligreses que pueden contribuir darían un poco más, podría compensar a los feligreses que no pueden donar este año. Todos nuestros hogares registrados ya deberían haber recibido un envío de DDF. Si no ha recibido el correo, llame a Tammy Stander al 417-866-0841. Ella te enviará la información por correo. Por favor revise los materiales. Estamos haciendo hincapié en la participación. Necesitamos que todos trabajemos juntos, especialmente este año. Cada regalo ayuda. Por favor considere en oración ayudar a la diócesis a financiar los muchos ministerios que provee para nuestra parroquia y las otras 85 parroquias y misiones en el sur de Missouri.

Seminarian at St Cecilia’s this summer!


My name is Nick Zummo, and I am a seminarian for the diocese. This summer, I will be helping out around the parish, and I look forward to getting to know each of you. In anticipation of that, I would like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself. I am originally from Springfield and went to High School in Nixa. Currently, I attend school at Mundelein Seminary in Chicago. This year I will be in my second year of theological studies. Thus far, I have particularly enjoyed my courses on the Scriptures. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer and running. As we move into the summer, I look forward to getting to know each of you in the parish community. Have a blessed week, and know you are in my prayers! 

Yours in Christ, 

Nick Zummo

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 94

Reading 1 Jer 20:10-13

Jeremiah said:
“I hear the whisperings of many:
‘Terror on every side!
Denounce! let us denounce him!’
All those who were my friends
are on the watch for any misstep of mine.
‘Perhaps he will be trapped; then we can prevail,
and take our vengeance on him.’
But the LORD is with me, like a mighty champion:
my persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph.
In their failure they will be put to utter shame,
to lasting, unforgettable confusion.
O LORD of hosts, you who test the just,
who probe mind and heart,
let me witness the vengeance you take on them,
for to you I have entrusted my cause.
Sing to the LORD,
praise the LORD,
for he has rescued the life of the poor
from the power of the wicked!”

Responsorial Psalm Ps 69:8-10, 14, 17, 33-35

R. (14c) Lord, in your great love, answer me.
For your sake I bear insult,
and shame covers my face.
I have become an outcast to my brothers,
a stranger to my mother’s children,
Because zeal for your house consumes me,
and the insults of those who blaspheme you fall upon me.
R. Lord, in your great love, answer me.
I pray to you, O LORD,
for the time of your favor, O God!
In your great kindness answer me
with your constant help.
Answer me, O LORD, for bounteous is your kindness;
in your great mercy turn toward me.
R. Lord, in your great love, answer me.
“See, you lowly ones, and be glad;
you who seek God, may your hearts revive!
For the LORD hears the poor,
and his own who are in bonds he spurns not.
Let the heavens and the earth praise him,
the seas and whatever moves in them!’‘
R. Lord, in your great love, answer me.

Reading 2 Rom 5:12-15

Brothers and sisters:
Through one man sin entered the world,
and through sin, death,
and thus death came to all men, inasmuch as all sinned—
for up to the time of the law, sin was in the world,
though sin is not accounted when there is no law.
But death reigned from Adam to Moses,
even over those who did not sin
after the pattern of the trespass of Adam,
who is the type of the one who was to come.

But the gift is not like the transgression.
For if by the transgression of the one the many died,
how much more did the grace of God
and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ
overflow for the many.

Gospel Mt 10:26-33

Jesus said to the Twelve:
“Fear no one.
Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed,
nor secret that will not be known.
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light;
what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul;
rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna.
Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin?
Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge.
Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others
I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others,
I will deny before my heavenly Father.”
