In this Gospel the love that Jesus reveals through the symbol of the cross is: self-giving, sacrificial, healing, forgiving, in solidarity with the weak, confident in the power of God. During the hot summer months many of the elderly, especially those who are sick, are not able to find relief from the heat. Please help the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to bring respite and hope to them.
We only have 7 stones left in our Rosary Garden at the front of the Rectory. If you would like a stone in memory or in honor of a loved one please let us know as soon as possible. We will be making a trip to have stones etched soon. Each stone is $125.00 and are 8x8 marble and includes a silhouette at the top of either a cross or a heart, two lines will be allowed for first and last name of sixteen characters per line and a third line for the dates (born, deceased, Anniversary date).
