Altar Society Christmas Cards

We sold all of the Christmas cards with the picture of the church in the snow and many people expressed an interest in purchasing them so more were ordered.  We will have approximately 23 boxes with 15 cards in each box.  Each box costs $20 with the proceeds going to the Altar Society. The Altar Society is responsible for purchasing the hosts, candles and other items to beautify the altar.  The cards will be sold on Sunday, November 2nd during cinnamon rolls and coffee in the hall after both Sunday am Masses. They will also be sold after Saturday night mass on November 15th (location dependent upon weather). If you have any questions, please contact Karrina Brasser at 409-1479.

(Romereports.com) Divine Law can be summarized in the love of God and love of our neighbor. These were the words of Pope Francis during yesterday's Angelus prayer.

Pope Francis said that brotherly love and the love of God are inseparable and complement each other because they are "two sides of the same coin”.

"You cannot love God without loving your brothers, and you cannot love your brothers without loving God”.
