FIVE WAYS TO MAKE YOUR PARISH A BETTER PLACE
Think of yourself as a part of your parish family. Family members dont always agree, but they do feel a strong commitment to the family.
Use your gifts and talents for the good of the parish. If youre a singer, public speaker, musician or just a friendly, helpful person, get involved as a lector, usher, greeter, extraordinary minister of Holy Communion or part of the parish music ministry.
Attend parish events. Whether its a mission, a lecture or lawn fete, its important to support the spiritual, education and social parts of parish life. Invite family members and friends to join you!
Support your parish financially. Parishes need your help with operational expenses, energy costs, supplies and maintenance. Be generous.
Pray. Keep your pastor, the parish staff and the parishioners in your daily prayers. Pray also for the return of Catholics who have strayed from practice of their faith. (by Lorene Hanley Duquin)
CHOOSE LIFE On January 17, 2008, the biotech company Stemagen announced the first cloning of human embryos by fusing donated egg cells with DNA from skin cells from an adult man. When scientists clone human beings for research purposes, they fail to recognize that the artificial creation of a human life for the soul purpose of her exploitation and destruction will always be gravely unethical since it sanctions the direct and explicit exploitation of one human being by another, in this case, the exploitation of the weak by the powerful.

VOCATIONS May the intercession of Mary, Mother of the Church and Mediatrix, create in the hearts and minds of young men and women in our diocese an openness to serve Christ and his Church as priests, and women and men religious.
