 A Word From Sr. Phyllis: We have received word from the Diocese of Belleville about a Catholic Gift Annuity program sponsored by Catholic Extension. It introduces a way for planned giving and legacy gifts with no risk, cost or administrative burden. These annuities are guaranteed by Catholic Extension and the parish will receive 90% of the annuity residuum at the death of the donor. The donor receives an immediate tax deduction for a portion of the gift and receives fixed payments for life with a portion of those payments being tax free. You will find more information on the give-away table.

Pray everyday to end abortion, euthanasia and the death penalty


I know there is but one Mind, which is the mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know there is a divine pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity and mutual helpfulness.

I know that the mind of humankind being one with the mind of God, shall discover the method, the way and means best fitted to permit the flow of Divine Love between individuals and nations.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity, and mutual helpfulness are experienced by all.

I know there will be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spittle concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries - for all good belongs to all alike.  I know that, because Divine Mind has created us all, we are bound together in one infinite and perfect unity.

I know that all people and all nations will remain individual but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony, and prosperity.

I know that deep within each person the Divine Pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in leaders of though everywhere this Divine Pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people will live together in peace, harmony, and prosperity forever.

And so it is! -Ernest Holmes
