Virtue of the Week

Goodness

Heavenly Father, thank you for making me in your image and likeness.  Draw out the goodness in me so I can share the light of your love with others.

“Turn from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it.” – Psalm 34:15

Is recognizing we are made in the image and likeness of God, and making choices to demonstrate our love for God and our neighbor.

St Francis Nativity Festival

Each family is asked to bring a nativity set to the church by NOON on Friday, December 15th for display and blessing. Each set should have a brief, typed note about the set (i.e. what it is made of, where it came from, history, etc.)  This is a wonderful way for parishioners to share Christmas traditions and beautiful nativity sets!  With questions or for more information, please contact James at the Parish Office.

Healing Mass Tonight

Tonight, November 14th, at 7 pm OLL will be offering a Mass of Healing and a special presentation by Father Jose Maniyangat.  On Divine Mercy Sunday, April 14, 1985, Father Jose was on the way to celebrate Mass when he was in a fatal collision with a drunk driver.  Father Jose, accompanied by his Guardian Angel visited Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. He has since been granted a gift of Healing and uses that to help as many as possible.

Virtue of the Week: Unity

Unity
Is an understanding that we are all one in Christ and that what we do to one another affects the entire Body.

“So we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another.” – Romans 12:5

Come, Lord Jesus, and make us one. May we contribute to the unity of your holy Church by seeking peace, promoting harmony, and valuing every human life as precious and unique. Amen.
