     Family Fun Fest


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

"What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is

spirit.  Do not be astonished that I said to you, 'You must be born from

above.'  The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but

you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone

who is born of the Spirit."  ~John 3:6-8

To be attracted toward God and a better life, we can be spirit-guided. There

is a wonderful illumination of thought given to those who are spirit-guided.

To those who are material-guided, there is nothing in God or a finer life to

appeal to them or to attract them.  But to those of us who are spirit-guided

there is strength and peace and calm to be found in communion with an unseen

Lord.  To those of us who believe in this God we cannot see but whose power

we can feel, life has a meaning and purpose.  We are children of the unseen

Lord, and all human beings are our brothers and sisters.


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


I pray that I may attain a state of true calmness.  I pray that I may live

in quietness and peace.

Saint of the Day:


.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.


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!
