WHY CATHOLIC MEETING – There will be a training workshop at Saint Francis in Greenwood, anybody interested are not only invited but are encouraged to attend. The date is this Sunday April 6th at 3:30pm to 5:30pm.


 EASTER SEASON – Remember we celebrate the Easter season for fifty (50) days up to Pentecost, won’t you make every effort to enjoy the Easter Season by the sharing in the daily Eucharist when possible.


FIRST COMMUNION – We will celebrate 1st Holy Communion on Mothers Day, May 11th.  I think this is a very special gift to mom that their child receive the Lord in Holy Communion for the first time on Mothers Day.  We will meet with the parents of the First Communion Children on Tuesday April 15th immediately after the 6:00pm Mass.  It is very important that both parents try to be present.   


CHOOSE LIFEThe production of embryonic-type stem cells from ordinary human cells, like skin cells, “represents a tremendous scientific milestone, the biological equivalent of the Wright Brothers’ first airplane…It’s a bit like learning how to turn lead into gold.” Dr. Robert Lanza, chief science officer of Advanced Cell Technology, a pioneer in the effort to extract stem cells from cloned embryos.
