Ministry of Family Healing
The Secret Pearl – When we say that, what comes to mind? Each word or thought of ours can be like a pearl that you drop in a secret place of another’s heart. In some hour of need, the recipient finds the treasure and realizes for the first time its VALUE.
Come and join us on Wednesday, May 22 at 7:30pm in the Parish Center as we explore just how God can be the Secret Pearl in our lives. The Ministry of Family Healing invites you to a night of prayer and reflection. Refreshments and fellowship to follow. Please call the Religious Education Office at 661-5440, Option 3 to register.
New Men’s Support Group
Starting Wednesday, May 8th at 8:00pm in Lourdes Hall (lower Convent), there will be a Men’s Bible-Based Recovery Group using the “Life Recovery Bible.” This is open to men with any addiction and is a 12-step program using the Scriptures as presented in the “Life Recovery Bible.” The meeting content is absolutely confidential and the membership anonymous. This is not affiliated with any other 12-step program due to the fact that it is Religious by nature. The meetings will take place the first 3 Wednesdays of every month.

Health Care and Catholic Conscience
A new interpretation of HHS is threatening the ability of the Catholic church to provide health care and benefits in accord with Catholic teaching. It would require agencies such as Catholic hospitals, Catholic charities, parishes and schools to provide health care benefits such as contraception and abortifacient agents to employees of the Church as part of our health insurance benefits.
