Healing MassMass this coming Friday March 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.


RememberWe again would like to remind all of our people that we will have special services on Friday evening at 6:15pm, consisting of The Way of the Cross, Scripture reading, mediation, and Holy Communion, followed by a light supper in the Family Life Center. 


Youth Supper  We feel that our Youth Supper and Talk was a grand success last Sunday evening, to be 

   And Talk       repeated regularly and again in the next few weeks. Sincere gratitude, to the families who participated and our young people who were present.

Choose Life A federal judge has upheld a South Dakota law requiring doctors to inform the patients that abortion kills a human being. The law mandates that a woman be told that abortion “will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.” Planned Parenthood had sought to overturn the law.

Quote For The Week1. “If successful people have one common trait, it’s an utter lack of cynicism. The world owes them nothing. They go out and find what they need without asking for permission; they’re driven, talented, and work through negatives by focusing on the positives.” (Mike Zimmerman)
