What can we do?

Dear Parishioner,

I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators today, and ask them to support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

This commonsense legislation requires that medical professionals exercise the same degree of care when a failed abortion results in a live birth as they would for a regular delivery.

A recent Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll found that 56% of Americans believe that an unborn child is a unique life and 75% would limit abortion to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy.  However, I think we can all agree that a newborn child has a right to the best care possible, no matter what the circumstances of their birth.

Please visit our Action Alert Center to email your Senators in support of this life saving legislation.  If you prefer, you can also call their offices in Washington directly. I have listed the phone numbers below, as well as their email addresses. If you decide to follow the link to the Action Alert Center, you will need to supply your email, name and address (used to determine your senators automatically) and it will allow you to click on the “Send All” button to email them.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

When we stumble...

Reflection

 No matter how many times we stumble on our weakness, 

 Jesus will always be there to give us strength and courage.

A special day

On January 27, our parishioners had Senior Center Services ministry on a very special day for Mary Mead. The celebration of Mary's 103rd birthday!

Mary was born in 1916 in New Hampshire. She worked at the Pentagon as a young lady where she met her husband Jay Mead. They lived many years at Waldo.

Fr. Grennan's birthday celebration

We are so very blessed to have Fr. James Grennan ministering to us. On Sunday, a parish celebration of Fr. Grennan's 94th birthday was held in the parish hall. The Knights of Columbus prepared pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage for breakfast. The Russell Council of Catholic Women supplied a beautiful birthday cake.

 Reflection

 Find at least one good point in the other person and build

 from there. An understanding love -- a love that sees the 

 good in others -- will be your goal.

Hopeless? NO, not with God.

 Reflection

 There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. God is

 all-powerful and bigger than any issue we could ever face.

Taking God's Word to the Seniors

We were so fortunate to be scheduled just before Christmas to have services at the retirement homes in Russell. Marge and Mary brought adornments for our heads, and we spread Christmas JOY to the seniors. 

 

You are welcome to join us in the future. We have Senior Services about every 5-6 weeks on Sunday afternoons. It is a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours. Please contact the parish office if you are interested in participating.

Open Yourself

 Reflection

 Open your heart, open your mind, and open

 your soul to the miracles God wants

 to work in and through you.

2018 CYO has begun

Our parish is so BLESSED to have such a fantastic youth group. Please keep them in your prayers.

(by my count, 3 kids are NOT smiling.  Can you find them?)

 

What is God saying to you today?

 Reflection

 Pay attention to what is happening around you. 

 There's a good chance that God is speaking to

 you without using words.
