Healing MassMass this coming Friday March 4th 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. 


R.C.I.AThe RCIA is taking a break this week and will not be able to resume, because of the Red Beans and Rice Supper, until Tuesday March 15, 2011.


Why Catholic? All of our groups should begin this week remember what we agreed on, that we would be able to complete the program with out rushing before Holy Week.

Red Beans and Rice Our Church Family is invited to participate in a red beans and rice supper on

Tuesday evening, March 8th, after the 6:00pm Mass and before Ash Wednesday. 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, 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.


Lent The Lenten announcement will be in next weeks bulletin.


Religious Education We ask parents to make attendance to religious education class a priority in their child’s weekly schedule. Children are required to attend classes in preparation for the Sacraments and their regular religious formation. Class times are K thru 12th grade, on Sunday at 10:15am until 11:15am.     


Choose Life In an article headlined “100 million ‘missing’ girls”, Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby describes the practice of aborting unborn girls in societies as varied as South Korea, India, Japan, China, Singapore, and some of the former Soviet republics. He notes, “It is not material poverty that leads these cultures to blithely accept the killing of their very youngest girls. It is a poverty of values, an ancient prejudice that views daughters as a financial burden, rather than a blessing to be cherished.”  (Boston Globe, 3/14/10) 



1.“The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.”  (Denis Waitley, American motivational speaker)

2. “The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of the force of habit and must understand that practices are what create habits. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires.”  (J. Paul Getty, 1892-1976, American Oil Tycoon)
