See the source imageIN 1943, POLAND WAS IN THE GRIP of the Nazi occupation. Slowly, Hitler’s henchmen were proceeding in their plans to eradicate the Polish race – a plan that would see over six million Polish Catholics dead. On the Northeastern frontiers of Poland, in Nowogrodek, a small convent of twelve sisters of The Most Holy Family of Nazareth offered their lives as a sacrifice for the freedom of their country. The Sisters prayed “O Lord, if it is necessary to have a sacrifice of life, accept it from us who are free from the duty of family and bring about the freedom of those who have a family.” The sacrifice was offered and accepted. Shortly thereafter, the Sisters were arrested and imprisoned. On August 1, 1943, they were led into the country and to a previously prepared pit. There they were brutally shot and buried in their blood stained habits as they fell into the pit. The courage of the nuns impressed even the mad Gestapo executioners. The sacrifice was not without effect, however. In Nowogrodek all who have been arrested were released. The people, full of deep respect and gratitude for their rescuers, arranged for them a triumphant funeral and buried them in the cemetery near the church. Soon the martyred Sisters were being asked for intercession in different causes and many came to pray at their graves. Numerous graces received through the intercession of these holy nuns is an indication that their sacrifice was pleasing to God and that they are favored by His graces.

PRAY FOR VOCATIONS to the Priesthood from our Parish and for our Parish so that we might always have a Priest here to celebrate the Mass and administer the Holy Sacraments! Please join in the Divine Mercy Chaplet to pray for vocations to the priesthood every Friday beginning at 4:45 p.m.

Month of the Immaculate Heart

Image result for Free pictures of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The month of August is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart. Since the 16th century Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue, and inner life. Such devotion is an incentive to a similar love and virtue.
This devotion has received new emphasis in this century from the visions given to Lucy Dos Santos, oldest of the visionaries of Fatima, in her convent in Tuy, in Spain, in 1925 and 1926. In the visions Our Lady asked for the practice of the Five First Saturdays to help make amends for the offenses committed against her heart by the blasphemies and ingratitude of men. The practice parallels the devotion of the Nine First Fridays in honor of the Sacred Heart.
On October 31, 1942, Pope Pius XII made a solemn Act of Consecration of the Church and the whole world to the Immaculate Heart. Let us remember this devotion year-round, but particularly through the month of August.
Excerpted from The Prayer Book by Reverend John P. O’Connell, M.A., S.T.D. and Jex Martin, M.A.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart

Pope Paul VI, on the floor of the Vatican Council at the close of the third session, renewed publicly the consecration of the Church and the world to Mary’s Immaculate Heart. He said that his thoughts turned to the whole world “which our venerated predecessor Pius XII . . . not without inspiration from on high, solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. . . . O Virgin Mary, Mother of the Council, to you we recommend the entire Church.” When he visited Fatima on May 13, 1967, the same Pope recalled this “consecration which we ourselves have renewed on November 21, 1964 — we exhort all the sons of the Church to renew personally their consecration to the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of the Church and to bring alive this most noble act of veneration through a life ever more in accord with the divine will and in a spirit of filial service and of devout imitation of their heavenly Queen.”
Before making a consecration it is most desirable to make a careful preparation extending over some period of time. One good way to make that preparation is described in the last part of St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion book.
The most essential thing is not making an act of consecration, with or without some solemnity, though that is important. The essential thing is to live that consecration.
Living a consecration could be described as following three attitudes or spirits:
Union — Imitation of Jesus and Mary, so as to become like them, and trying to develop as constant as possible a realization of His and her presence.
Dependence — Give to Jesus and Mary the right to dispose of everything we have, temporal and spiritual.
Obedience — Jesus and Mary have the right to ask us to do anything at all, even without reward. In consecration, we recognize that right, give it on a basis of love, and plan to carry it out with fullest generosity.
St. Maximilian Kolbe liked to speak of the relation of consecration to our baptismal promises, in which we promised to renounce Satan and all his works, and to follow Jesus, by whom we are “sealed” in baptism as His property. Consecration is the fullest kind of response to and carrying out of these promises. Mary, in view of her Immaculate Conception, was most fitted to respond most fully, and that she did, with a fullness and perfection beyond our ability to visualize — for we recall that Pius IX told us that even at the start of her existence, her holiness was so great that “none greater under God can be thought of, and no one but God can comprehend it.”
Excerpted from Our Father’s Plan, Fr. William G. Most

The Great Pardon of Portiuncula
Portiuncula (in Italian Porziuncola) means Little Portion and is the name given to a small Chapel of Our Lady of the Angels, which was restored by St. Francis and stands in the plain below Assisi. St. Francis and his first friars built some huts near the old stone chapel and there established the headquarters of their order.
A Plenary Indulgence is granted to the faithful, who devoutly visit their parish church on the 2nd of August, when the indulgence of St. Francis, the “Portiuncula,” occurs. Many extraordinary favors were granted to him in this little church. The Blessed Virgin Mary surrounded by a great host of angels appeared in a vision and designated this place to St. Francis as the cradle of all the Franciscans. Here, likewise, she implored Jesus for St. Francis the great indulgence by which the Portiuncula became famous throughout Christendom.
The Pope has granted the indulgence of the Portiuncula to the entire world if the faithful on August 2nd visit their parish church and pray one Our Father and the Creed for the intention of the Holy Father. To complete the indulgence one must be free from sin, make a sacramental confession within seven days and receive Holy Communion.
What is an indulgence? The new Enchiridion of Indulgences, issued in 1968, has the following definition: “An indulgence is the remission, before God, of the temporal punishment due for sins already forgiven as far as their guilt is concerned. This remission the faithful, with the proper dispositions and under certain determined conditions, acquire through the intervention of the Church which, as minister of the Redemption, authoritatively dispenses and applies the treasury of the satisfaction won by Christ and the Saints. An indulgence is partial or plenary, according as it removes either part or all of the temporal punishment due for sin.”

Under their imperial robes they wore penitential hair shirts and they personally gave much time and money to the care of the needy and the sick.

Down Syndrome Researcher’s Sainthood Causea ‘witness to life’
By Adelaide Mena

See the source image

The life of Dr. Jérôme Lejeune, a French researcher who discovered the genetic cause of Down syndrome, is an example of faith, respect for the dignity of all human life, and search for truth in science, say those who work to spread his legacy.
“The example of Jérôme Lejeune is a man who serves as a witness in contemporary time for challenges that we all face,” said Mark Bradford, president of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation USA, in a March 18 interview with CNA.As he has learned more about Lejeune, Bradford said he “came to know him as a deep man of faith, a deep man of family, a commitment and love for his family, and an incredible love for science and realized that all of that sprang from his deep faith.”
Lejeune discovered that Down syndrome was caused by an extra copy of chromosome 21 in 1958. People with the syndrome present a variety of different conditions, including growth delays, varying levels of intellectual impairment, and a variety of physical abnormalities.
He spent the rest of his life researching treatments and cures for Down syndrome and the people living with it.
An ardent Catholic, Lejeune was named the first president of the Pontifical Academy for Life by St. John Paul II. He advocated strongly against the use of prenatal testing and the abortion of unborn children who were found to have Down syndrome.
After his death in 1994, a cause for his canonization was opened in 2007. Aude Dugast, postulator of the cause, told CNA that Lejeune’s life and work is a witness for doctors and researchers, and shows there “is no contradiction between the deeds of doctors and the deeds of Catholics.”
Many of those involved in science and research “put their faith on one side, and their jobs on the other, and the two don’t go together.” But Lejeune showed that “faith and reason are not opposed, but complementary,” Dugast said.
He dedicated himself with passion to his research and learning, Dugast explained, but he also showed a passion for helping children with Down syndrome, to whom he showed an “unconditional love.”
Lejeune showed that through both learning and loving, “one can see the beauty of creation.”
Thus, Lejeune’s canonization would provide an official “example to the world,” Dugast commented, adding that in today’s world, “there is a terrible need for people today in our world who respect human life.”
Through canonizing Lejeune, “the Church would recognize his sanctity” and it would “manifest to all that our right” as persons, is to respect and to protect life.
“If they canonize him, it would be a good demonstration of the heroic life of Jérôme Lejeune.”
Bradford, who has a son living with Down syndrome, said that Lejeune’s legacy shows that “there was no contradiction between the practice of medicine and faith because they both have the same source”—a grounding in the “natural moral law.”
This witness, he continued, is a “sign of hope and an example of strength,” particularly for the contemporary world. Today “we see a crisis in family and we see so many cases of absent fathers,” as well as “cases of disingenuous practice of medicine or pursuit of science,” and other transgressions of the natural law.
“In Jérôme Lejeune we see a man who only sought the truth in each of those areas,” Bradford said, “giving no place for the evil he saw.”
“We can see the consequence of remaining true to our beliefs and true to our faith.” While Lejeune “lost almost everything, we’re here talking about him tonight: he won.”

MONDAY, JULY 15this the Feast of St. Bonaventure whose writings earned him the title “Seraphic Doctor”. He will be remembered in the Mass at 8:00 a.m.

See the source image

TUESDAY, JULY 16th is the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. This is the patronal feast of the Carmelites. The Order of Carmelites takes its name from Mount Carmel, which was the first place dedicated to the Blessed Virgin and where a chapel was erected in her honor before her Assumption into heaven.
July 16th is also the Feast of the “Scapular of Mount Carmel.” On that day in 1251, pious tradition says, the Blessed Virgin appeared to St. Simon Stock, General of the Carmelites at Cambridge, England, showed him the scapular and promised supernatural favors and her special protection to his Order and to all persons who would wear her scapular.
To obtain the indulgences and other benefits promised to those who wear the Carmelite scapular, a person must be invested by a priest and must lead a consistent Christian life.

THE WEEKLY ST. JUDE NOVENA will be offered at the 5:30 p.m. Mass on Wednesday, July17th. All are welcome to come and pray for the intercession of this saint who is the patron of hopeless and impossible cases.

JULY 17th IS THE FEAST of Saint Czeslaw who was of the house of The Counts of Odrowotz. He was also the brother of St. Hyacinth. He led a simple and penitential life devoted to the help of the poor and social outcasts. With his brother, he became a Dominican Friar and a strong and vigorous preacher. In 1240, while Saint Czeslaw was the Prior of the Dominican monastery in Wroclaw, the Tartars attacked the city. The savage Tartars greatly outnumbered the Polish soldiers and the city prepared for the sack and holocaust that was sure to follow a Tartar victory. Saint Czeslaw insisted on complete faith in God and never ceased with tears to implore the Divine Protection for Wroclaw. The Poles charged into the Barbarians with the prayers of the saint ringing in their ears and miraculously the Barbarians fell back crushed. Thus, the Tartars who had destroyed so many armies and caused so much ruin and desolation, were trampled to the ground by the prayer of one humble monk. Saint Czeslaw died in 1242 after a life of powerful faith and charity.

JULY 17th IS ALSO THE FEAST of St. Jadwiga (Hedwig). In 1384, ten-year-old Jadwiga was crowned the queen of Poland. She married Grand Duke Ladislas Jagiello of Lithuania, forming a political alliance that served both countries well. A pagan, Jagiello agreed to have himself and the entire population of Lithuania baptized if he married Hedwig. The kingdom soon became one of the truly devout Christian regions in Europe, remaining firm in the faith into the modern age. Having offered her title, her talents, and her entire life to service of Christ, Jadwiga obtained permission from Pope Boniface IX to establish a faculty of theology at KrakowUniversity and instituted programs for the sick and poor of many nations, putting her devotion to Christ into charitable actions. Jadwiga and her firstborn child, a daughter, died in childbirth in Krakow on July 17, 1399. She was beatified in 1896 by Pope Leo XIII, and was honored for her commitment to the duties of her throne and the demands of her station as a royal. Pope John Paul II canonized Jadwiga on June 8, 1997, on the Blonia Estplanade in Krakow, in the presence of more than one and a half million of her devout countrymen and women.

THURSDAY, JULY 18th is the Feast of St. Camillus de Lellis who devoted his life to the sick and the dying, and after his death this work was continued by the Order he had founded.

THURSDAY, JULY 20this the Feast of St. Apollinarius. Early accounts report that he was ordained bishop by St. Peter himself and sent as a missionary bishop to Ravenna during the reign of the emperor Claudius. Renowned for his power to heal in the name of Christ, he was frequently exiled, tortured, and imprisoned for the faith, and finally, martyred. He will be remembered in the Mass at 8:00 a.m.

THE PRO-LIFE NOVENA will continue on Saturday, July20thbefore the 8:00 a.m. Mass. All are welcome to pray in supplication for an end to the violence of abortion and in reparation for our lack of love which makes abortion acceptable in our nation.

Prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success
About Our Times

See the source image

During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Our Lady of Good Success appeared in Quito, Ecuador to a Spanish nun whose little-known but extraordinary life has a direct connection with our days.
The Pope’s “infallibility will be declared a dogma of Faith by the same Pope chosen to proclaim the dogma of the mystery of my Immaculate Conception. He will be persecuted and imprisoned in the Vatican through the usurpation of the Pontifical States and through the malice, envy, and avarice of an earthly monarch.”
“Unbridled passions will give way to a total corruption of customs because Satan will reign through the Masonic sects, targeting the children in particular to ensure general corruption.
“Unhappy, the children of those times! Seldom will they receive the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. As for the sacrament of Penance, they will confess only while attending Catholic schools, which the devil will do his utmost to destroy by means of persons in authority.
“The same will occur with Holy Communion. Oh, how it hurts me to tell you that there will be many and enormous public and hidden sacrileges!
“In those times, the sacrament of Extreme Unction will be largely ignored.… Many will die without receiving it, being thereby deprived of innumerable graces, consolation, and strength in the great leap from time to eternity.
“The sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church, will be thoroughly attacked and profaned. Masonry, then reigning, will implement iniquitous laws aimed at extinguishing this sacrament. They will make it easy for all to live in sin, thus multiplying the birth of illegitimate children without the Church’s blessing….
“Secular education will contribute to a scarcity of priestly and religious vocations.”
“The holy sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed, and despised, for in this both the Church and God Himself are oppressed and reviled, since He is represented by His priests.
“The devil will work to persecute the ministers of the Lord in every way, working with baneful cunning to destroy the spirit of their vocation and corrupting many. Those who will thus scandalize the Christian flock will bring upon all priests the hatred of bad Christians and the enemies of the One, Holy, Roman Catholic, and Apostolic Church. This apparent triumph of Satan will cause enormous suffering to the good pastors of the Church…and to the Supreme Pastor and Vicar of Christ on earth who, a prisoner in the Vatican, will shed secret and bitter tears in the presence of God Our Lord, asking for light, sanctity, and perfection for all the clergy of the world, to whom he is King and Father.”
“Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded despite the light, give their hand to the Church’s enemies and do their bidding. But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground.
“Then will the Church, joyful and triumphant like a young girl, reawaken and be comfortably cradled in the arms of my most dear and elect son of those times. If he lends an ear to the inspirations of grace–one of which will be the reading of these great mercies that my Son and I have had toward you–we shall fill him with graces and very special gifts and will make him great on earth and much greater in Heaven. There we have reserved a precious seat for him because, heedless of men, he will have fought for truth and ceaselessly defended the rights of the Church, deserving to be called ‘martyr.’”
“At the end of the nineteenth century and throughout a great part of the twentieth, many heresies will be propagated in these lands.…
“The small number of souls who will secretly safeguard the treasure of Faith and virtues will suffer a cruel, unspeakable, and long martyrdom. Many will descend to their graves through the violence of suffering and will be counted among the martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the country and the Church.

“To be delivered from the slavery of these heresies, those whom the merciful love of my Son has destined for this restoration will need great will-power, perseverance, courage, and confidence in God. To try the faith and trust of these just ones, there will be times when all will seem lost and paralyzed. It will then be the happy beginning of the complete restoration….
“In those times the atmosphere will be saturated with the spirit of impurity which, like a filthy sea, will engulf the streets and public places with incredible license.… Innocence will scarcely be found in children, or modesty in women.
“He who should speak seasonably will remain silent.
“There shall be scarcely any virgin souls in the world. The delicate flower of virginity will seek refuge in the cloisters.…Without virginity, fire from heaven will be needed to purify these lands.…
“Sects, having permeated all social classes, will find ways of introducing themselves into the very heart of homes to corrupt the innocence of children. The children’s hearts will be dainty morsels to regale the devil.…
“Religious communities will remain to sustain the Church and work with courage for the salvation of souls.… The secular clergy will fall far short of what is expected of them because they will not pursue their sacred duty. Losing the divine compass, they will stray from the way of priestly ministry mapped out for them by God and will become devoted to money, seeking it too earnestly.
“Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests.”

Month of the Precious Blood

See the source image

The month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood. The feast of the Precious Blood of our Lord was instituted in 1849 by Pius IX, but the devotion is as old as Christianity. The early Fathers say that the Church was born from the pierced side of Christ, and that the Sacraments were brought forth through His Blood.
“The Precious Blood which we worship is the Blood which the Savior shed for us on Calvary and reassumed at His glorious Resurrection; it is the Blood which courses through the veins of His risen, glorified, living body at the right hand of God the Father in heaven; it is the Blood made present on our altars by the words of Consecration; it is the Blood which merited sanctifying grace for us and through it washes and beautifies our soul and inaugurates the beginning of eternal life in it.”

The Old Testament
Cain and Abel are making an offering. Abel’s sacrifice is pleasing to God, Cain’s is not. This gives rise to the sin of hatred, and fratricide is its resolution. The thirsting earth soaks up Abel’s blood as it shouts to heaven for vengeance. This shouting prefigured the scene on Calvary, where Christ’s Blood cried to heaven for the redemption of mankind.
Millenia pass, and now we see Israel oppressed by Egypt. God commands the people to kill a lamb and to sprinkle the doorposts with its blood; houses thus besprinkled are spared by the messenger of death. But where the doors are not reddened with the blood of the lamb, all male firstborn from king to slave die. This blood on the doorposts was a type of the Blood of Christ. Can the blood of a lamb save a man? No, but as a figure of the Redeemer’s Blood it certainly does. For when the Destroyer sees the thresholds of a human heart marked with Christ’s sacred Blood, he must pass by. And another soul is saved.
In a vision the prophet Isaias saw a man treading out grapes (in the Orient, trampling upon grapes in the wine-press was the usual means of extracting the juice). The prophet asked the man: “Why are your garments so red? “The wine-press I have trodden alone,” he answers, “because from the nations there is no one with me.” The trodder of the wine-press is Christ, His garments crimsoned by the Blood of redemption.
Excerpted from The Church’s Year of Grace , Pius Parsch

The New Testament
The Church reminds us of the first drops of blood that flowed for our redemption on the day when Jesus was circumcised.
It is night on Mount Olivet, and the moon is shining. We see the holy face crimsoned with blood during the agony in the garden.
Unhappy, despairing Judas casts the blood-money down in the temple. “I have betrayed innocent blood!”
In the scourging chamber we see the Lord in deepest humiliation; under raw strokes the divine Blood spurts out over the floor. Christ is led before Pilate. Pilate shows the blood-covered Body to the crowds: Ecce homo! We go through Jerusalem’s streets following the bloody footsteps to Golgotha. Down the beams of the Cross blood trickles. A soldier opens the sacred side. Water and Blood.
Excerpted from The Church’s Year of Grace,
Pius Parsch

Symbols of the Precious Blood
Adam is sleeping an ecstatic sleep. God opens his side, removes a rib and forms Eve, the mother of all the living. But our view transcends this action and in spirit we behold the second, the divine Adam, Christ. He is sleeping the sleep of death. From His opened side blood and water flow, symbols of Baptism and the Eucharist, symbols of the second Eve, the Church, the Mother of all the living. Through blood and water Christ willed to redeem God’s many children and to lead them to an eternal home.
At Jerusalem a service in Yahweh’s honor is taking place on the Day of Atonement. The high priest is making his annual entrance into the holy of holies to sprinkle the blood of bucks and bulls upon the covenant in expiation for the sins of the people. The Church shows us the higher meaning of this rite. Our divine High Priest Christ on the first Good Friday entered that Holy of Holies which is not made with hands nor sprinkled with the blood of bucks and bulls; there He effects, once and for all, with His own Blood man’s eternal redemption.

A finale. Holy Church transports us to the end. The heavenly liturgy is in progress. Upon the altar is the Lamb, slain yet alive, crimsoned by His own Blood. Round about stand the countless army of the redeemed in garments washed white in the Blood of the Lamb. Hosts of the blessed are singing the new canticle of redemption: “You have redeemed us out of every tribe and tongue and nation by Your Blood.”
Now from vision to present reality. How fortunate we are to have divine Blood so near to us, to offer it to the heavenly Father for the sins of the whole world!
Excerpted from The Church’s Year of Grace ,
Pius Parsch

Our Catholic Faith
Crucifix vs. Cross

See the source image

Some people argue that the cross, rather than a Crucifix, is a more fitting symbol of our Faith since the absence of the Lord’s Body proclaims His resurrection. Yet those that criticize the Catholic Church for use of the Crucifix are those who preach the loudest that Christ shed His Blood for sinners, that He died ON the cross.
Catholics pay particular honor and respect to the Crucifix for what it represents and finds it difficult to understand Christian people avoiding it. For Catholics, the cross only has its true meaning when it holds its Victim. Yet, Christ is now resurrected, triumphant, and reigning in Heaven, but that is no reason that we should forget the sacrifice which won our redemption and salvation. In His risen Body our Lord Jesus used as definitive proof of His identity that even in His glorified state He bore the wounds of His saving passion and death – the signs of His deep and abiding love for us (cf. John 20:20, 27).
The Church with St. Paul says: “We preach Christ crucified” (1 Cor. 1:23). The mystery of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ was in fact the very essence of the Apostles’ teaching (cf. Acts 2:22-24; 3:13-15, etc.) for it was these mysteries that contained all hope of eternal life and salvation. That is why Paul adds that, for believers, Christ crucified, far from being folly, is the power of God and the wisdom of God (cf. 1 Cor. 1:24). To the Galatians Paul warned them to fix their gaze on the image of Christ on the Cross (Gal. 3:1). So the Crucifix is a mandated part of every Catholic church’s altar, a constant reminder that we have been bought at a great price.

MONDAY, JULY 1st is the Feast of St. Junipero Serra, the Spanish Monk who established nine of the California missions and baptized over 6,000 native peoples.  He is recognized as the builder of the state of California and Pope John Paul II called him “the exemplar model of the selfless evangelizer.” He will be remembered in the 8:00 a.m. Mass.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 3rd is the Feast of St. Thomas the Apostle whose incredulity gave way to faith when he saw the Risen Lord.  He will be remembered in the 5:30 p.m. Mass.

THE WEEKLY ST. JUDE NOVENA will be offered at the 5:30 p.m. Mass on Wednesday, July 3rd.  All are welcome to come and pray for the intercession of this saint who is the patron of hopeless and impossible cases.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MASS FOR THE 4th OF JULY, (Independence Day), will be at 8:00 a.m. so that people may have their picnics and have time for fireworks.  Please note there will be no Mass at 5:30 on July 4th.

HOLY HOURS OF REPARATION are held twice weekly in our parish, on Thursday & Friday at 4:30 p.m., concluding with the 5:30 p.m. Mass.  Please come and spend some time with Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

FRIDAY, JULY 5th is the Feast of St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria.  St. Anthony was a doctor who at the age of 36 became a priest and the founder of a religious community whose goals were to reform society.  He will be remembered in the 5:30 p.m. Mass.

St. Maria Goretti will be remembered in the Mass at 5:30 p.m.

THE PRO-LIFE NOVENA will continue on Saturday, July 6th before the 8:00 a.m. Mass.  All are welcome to pray in supplication for an end to the violence of abortion and in reparation for our lack of love which makes abortion acceptable in our nation.
