Healing MassMass this coming Friday February 5th is the First Friday of the Month. We are encouraging as many people as possible to participate in this Mass of Healing, where we pray to God for health of mind, soul and body. This Mass will be at 10:00am Friday morning. Hopefully our Knights of Columbus will furnish a little breakfast so we can have time for fellowship and conversation.  


Why Catholic?” The next session of “Why Catholic?” will explore the Eucharist and the other Sacraments of our Church. These should prove to be very interesting gatherings for our Catholic People. There is a workshop on this very subject at St. Francis of Assisi in Greenwood, today, Jan. 31, 2010 from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. 


FacilitatorsSince we are about to begin “Why Catholic?” we would like to encourage all of those who were leaders of groups in the last session to hopefully be willing to serve in this position again. So please, start calling in your people, and anybody who did not get to participate in the last session to please join us as we begin our “Why Catholic?” journey toward Lent.

Choose Life “Science can tell us what is, but it can’t tell us good from bad, right from wrong. Therefore it is not anti-science to oppose embryonic stem cell research and human cloning. It is pro-science to care enough to keep this powerful enterprise within proper ethical parameters.” (Wesley Smith, NRL News, June 2008)
