Red Beans and RiceOur Church Family is invited to participate in a red beans and rice supper

on Tuesday evening, Feb. 16, after the 6:00pm Mass. This is traditionally known as Fat Tuesday, to

eat all you want and all you can before the Holy Season of Lent begins. The Knights will prepare the

red beans and rice and the church Family are to bring anything they wish except soft drinks. If you

want to fix a pancake I’ll bet Fr. Ruane gets to it first.


           RIP We join again in praying for the happy repose of the soul of Mary Enriquez, Vicki McKnight’s

              mother. Vicki is great full to all of those who expressed sympathy and offered prayers.  


R.C.I.A.Our group will meet this Tuesday evening immediately after the 6:00pm Mass [2/9/10]. In addition to those who have been participating anybody who may be interested is very welcome. Topic: Sacrament of Reconciliation [Confession].   


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 “What allows the injustice and pain of abortion to continue unabated? What shields the horror of the abortion practice from scrutiny and exposure? Lies. Whole webs of deceit. Mountains of evasions and a cultural elite who know, but don’t want to know, the truth.” (Fr. Thomas King, S.J., former Georgetown University professor)
