Quotes by Pope Francis on the

Sanctity of Life
The fight against abortion is part of the battle in
favor of life from the moment of conception until a
dignified, natural end. This includes the care of the
mother during pregnancy, the existence of laws to
protect the mother postpartum, and the need to ensure that children receive enough food, as well as

Stewardship Thoughts
December 28, 2014 - The Holy Family of Jesus,
Mary and Joseph
" the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive." - Colossians
Forgiveness - one of the hardest things for people to
do. It's amazing how long we can hold a grudge or be
angry with someone. As we celebrate the feast of the
Holy Family, take this opportunity to give the gift of
forgiveness to someone - maybe someone in your
family, maybe a friend, maybe a co-worker or neighbor or, maybe yourself.

Mass Intentions
As Catholics, we have a long tradition of having Masses celebrated for those we wish to offer up in prayer.
The Mass is the ultimate form of prayer, and each Mass is celebrated for an intention. We ask $10.00 per
mass intention.
Please consider having Masses celebrated for family and friends on special occasions and anniversaries, as
well as those who are in need of prayers. Masses are also encouraged in memory of those loved ones who
have died, especially on the anniversaries of their deaths. Contact Fr. Cory for more information!

Catholics not just Church teachings but the Catholic

Participants see how doctrines and practices fit together and how they are meant to be lived out in their

so well thought through as Symbolon."
