In light of current events pertaining to abortion legislation in our country and in remembrance of the Roe v. Wade decision which was handed down from the Supreme Court on Jan. 22, 1973, the Pro-Life Committee would like to encourage all parishioners to commit to praying a Rosary for Life on the 22nd of each month. Please implore the Virgin Mother to intervene on behalf of the unborn for their protection and to assist in the formation and adoption of legislation that leads to the end of legalized form of abortion--and any other form of abortion--in this country and around the world.
You can pray a Rosary for Life at home, alone, or in a group, but please, mark your calendars or enter a reminder on your phone and consider offering your time and prayer for those who do not yet have a voice.

Share the joy of reading with young people in our community!
Our Altar & Rosary Society is sponsoring a book drive for local children who use the CommUnity Food Bank. They are collecting new or lightly used books for ages newborn-16 years. There will be collection boxes in the West Entrance for the weekends of June.
Thank you for your generosity in helping with this effort to provide the joy of reading!

There will be a special Mass at noon that day. A reception will follow in the parish hall at 1:30 p.m.

Pray a Monthly Rosary for Parish Youth
Want to help the youth of our parish grow in holiness? Commit to praying a rosary for them one day a month!
Our hope is for at least one rosary to be said for ALL parish youth (not just those attending youth activities) by somebody in the church community each day from September 2018-September 2019. If each person or family commits to just one day per month, we can be sure that the youth are actively and concretely being prayed for each day.
We trust in the intercession of Our Lady and know that the graces given to these youth will allow them to be leaders in their faith throughout their lives! Let's do all that we can to help our youth to be saints!
