Verse of the Day

Welcome To Our Parish Website!

October is Respect Life Month 

The Catholic Church affirms that all human beings are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Every human being has inherent worth simply because they are human, regardless of their Characteristics. The Church also affirms that human life begins at conception. At conception, a human receives two sets of DNA, one from our father and one from our mother. These two sets come together to form a new and unique life. From the moment of conception, each new life has its own DNA, a unique set of instructions about growth and development. The embryo, from the moment of conception, must therefore be recognized as a human being who possesses the rights and inherent dignity of a person. Most importantly, this developing human possesses the right to life. The Church has opposed abortion since the first century. This position has not changed throughout the Church’s history. Truly children are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3.

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and together with the congregation of St Mary’s and St Rita’s the Knights of Columbus will deliver a Thanksgiving dinner to less fortunate families in the area. Food bags will be distributed November 5th and 6th. Please fill the bags with nonperishable food and return by the weekend of November 12th and 13th. Thank you for all your help.
