Our Family Fun Fest is October 15th.  It will be a great afternoon of fun
for our parishioners.  We also have Raffle Tickets available.  There are 4
$1000 prizes, a $500 prize and 5 $100 prizes.  If you'd like tickets, see
the special page at our Parish Web Site.  I appreciate the many of you who
help out in this way.  I can't remember a raffle when some of our
cyber-members weren't winners!  One of our cyber-members has won twice in
the St. Pat's Calendar Raffle already!  Just follow the link from:

"If I say, 'Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me
become night,' even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright
as the day, for darkness is as light to you.  For it was you who formed my
inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I
am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know
very well.  My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in
secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes beheld my
unformed substance. In your book were written all the days that were formed
for me, when none of them as yet existed." ~Psalm 139:11-16

Sunshine is the laughter of nature.  We can live out in the sunshine. The
sun and air are good medicine.  Nature is a good nurse for tired bodies. We
can let nature have her way with us.  God's grace is like the sunshine. We
can let our whole being be enwrapped in God's spirit.  It can make glad the
hearts of all of us.  God's spirit can heal and cure the mind.  We can let
it have its way and know that all will be well!

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may live in the sunshine of God's spirit.  I pray that my mind
and soul may be energized by it.

healing and strength for her 100 year old grandmother who is in the hospital

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
