The 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mark 4:35-41 —
Jesus calms the storm.

As we continue in Ordinary Time, our reading today is taken from the Gospel of Mark, the primary Gospel reading in Lectionary Cycle B. Mark's Gospel presents a vivid portrait of Jesus, whose words and deeds show that he is the Son of God. Today's Gospel describes the end of a day of teaching in Jesus' ministry. Jesus taught the crowd in parables and then offered explanations of these parables to his disciples. Jesus then led his disciples away from the crowds and into the boats that they will use to cross the Sea of Galilee. The sea and its surrounding area are the settings for Jesus' teachings and miracles in this part of Mark's Gospel. Today's reading describes how Jesus calmed a storm at sea. It is the first of four miracles that are presented in sequence at this point in Mark's Gospel.

Parish News

The parish CCD program (religious education for children attending public schools in grades 1-8) will begin on Monday, August 23, at 6:45 PM.  Registration forms were mailed last week to all returning families and to newly registered parish families with children of school age. Registration forms and detailed information is also available here.

Registration forms should be completed and returned by August 3. They may be sent to the parish office or dropped in the weekend collection in an envelope marked “CCD.” If you have any questions concerning the program please contact Laura Ryan at or call 859-727-2035.

Faith & Family Fridays
For young families, attending Mass on Sundays can feel like a daunting task at times, especially while trying to navigate the return to normalcy post-pandemic. As a support to parents and to help build fellowship among our parish families, St. Henry Parish will host Faith & Family Fridays beginning this Friday, June 25.  Moms (and dads!) and their children are invited to attend Mass on Friday mornings, then head to Wehage Hall where the children can play while parents meet to discuss the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday Mass. A light breakfast, activities for the children, a guide for the Sunday readings, as well as a few high school student volunteers to aid with babysitting will be provided. Questions? Please contact Laura Ryan, or 859-727-2035. High school students in need of service hours and interested in volunteering to provide babysitting for this important ministry should also contact Laura Ryan. The  time commitment for volunteers is from 8:30- 9:30 AM.

Blessing of Our New St. Henry Statue
Have you noticed the new statue of St. Henry over by the entrance to our parish school? The statue will be blessed after the 8:00 AM Mass on Tuesday, July 13, the Feast Day of St. Henry, followed by refreshments.

Bulletin cover art work needed! Children and adults are invited to submit a drawing of St. Henry which will be featured on the July 11 bulletin cover. The winning drawing will be chosen by our priests and the artist  will receive a $25 spirit wear voucher for the fall spirit wear sale hosted by our parish school. Drop off entries to the school or parish office or in the collection no later than July 5. Contact with any questions.
