Thank You from Mother of Life Pregnancy Center

We are prayerfully grateful for the participation of the Mary, Mother of Mankind parish family in our annual Spring Rose Sale.  During May and June, we distributed more than 10,000 roses throughout the diocese, including nearly 150 in your parish. Your donation of $621 is precious proof of wholehearted enthusiasm for our prolife ministry. Your cooperation, assistance and generous gifts helped us achieve great success. We give special thanks to Father Varghese, who welcomed our fundraiser, Jim & Mary Gilcreast, who volunteered to conduct the sale in the parish, and sales assistant Michael Thibaudeau. We are truly touched and honored by everyone's support. May God bless your charitable hearts!


Thank You

A special thank you to Nick Azzarone who has generously donated a beautiful American Flag for our Church.

My Father's Day joke from my homily: "A young college student was asked by their professor, 'Who is your favorite writer?' The student immediately responded, 'My dad'. The professor said 'Oh, I didn't know your dad was a writer. What has he written?' The student replied 'He writes the checks!'"



Adults: Does the peace of Christ reign in my home and place of work? Is there anything that I can do to bring it about?
Children: How do I try to bring peace and stop fights among my friends and classmates?

Prayer For Our Nation

Dear Lord, we call our country “one nation under God” when we pledge allegiance to our flag. May we always remember that we are subject to You. Help us always to recall that a nation is great only so long as it worships You as its author. Remind us that no nation can truly prosper unless it acknowledges its dependance on You. Give us the grace to remember always that the true sign of strength for any nation or person is how well we treat the weak and helpless among us. Make us truly thankful for all You have given us throughout our history.
