This second Sunday of May day gives us all a chance to remember and acknowledge the important maternal figures in our lives. For me those are definitely my mom, then equally though in a different manner the Blessed Mother, and holy mother church.
First and foremost, we thank John Scott for his humble and quiet service of more than 25 years. He is retiring and we, as a group and with Fr. Terry’s blessing, have decided to continue this Hope Rescue Mission.
On Sunday, April 28, the St. Therese Little Flower Social Justice Commission (SJC) hosted the Faith in Indiana St. Joseph County chapter in a powerful workshop on one-on-one relationship building. Over fifty people from various churches, Sinai Synagogue and neighborhood groups attended the training.
The month of May is traditionally dedicated to our Blessed Mother. Whether it is due to the proximity of "May" to "Mary," I do not know, but I believe it fitting at this time of new life in Our Lord's Resurrection to remember her.
With a new abortion clinic potentially opening in South Bend, Right to Life is reactivating their sidewalk counseling ministry. A free training will be provided on May 4 from 10:00 am-1:00 pm at Right to Life's office, 2004 Ironwood Circle, Ste 130, South Bend IN 46635. Light refreshments will be served.
Happy Easter! Surrexit Christus Vere! “Christ Indeed has risen!” Last Sunday was such a wonderful way to start this Easter season! Today, Divine Mercy Sunday is the 8th day of the Octave of Easter, so with today's feast we conclude the eight-day celebration of Our Lord's Resurrection. Now that we have encountered the Risen Lord, the universal Church will spend the next 42 days celebrating the His presence among us until the Ascension, concluding the Easter season ten days later with Pentecost.
