Thanksgiving Masses

8:00 AM  Holy Angels

Please remember that we will also be collecting non-perishable food items to be sent to the local food pantries. Please remember to check the expiration dates before you bring items for the collection.

 

Just a reminder:
It’s not about cleaning out our cabinets or pantries from old, damaged or out-dated canned goods but about sharing what we have with those who are in need. PLEASE also remember that bizarre and unusual items are not very helpful to those in need and cannot be distributed to the needy.

NOTICE

 

March for Life

Friday, January 18, 2019

Washington DC

Deacon Tim is organizing a bus trip for the 2019 March for Life, which will take place on Friday, January 18th in Washington, DC. Since the 1973 Supreme Court cases, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which legalized abortion-on-demand in our country, over 60 million lives have been lost to abortion. Ending abortions and promoting a culture of life is why we march each year.

Deacon Tim is trying to determine which size bus to reserve for our group. If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to deacontim@verizon.net.

If you cannot join us, please pray for our safety on the trip and for the end to abortion. "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
