Text Box: Last weekís second collection for the Building Fund amounted to $1,342.00. 

This week, the 2nd collection  is for the Bishopís Appeal. 

Next week, the 2nd collection is for the Catholic Charities. 

       The springtime month of May is popularly devoted to Mary. Statues dedicated to her are showered with bouquets and crowns of flowers. The second Sunday of May, Motherís Day (celebrated in Spain on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8), often takes on Marian nuances. There was an annual Mothering Sunday celebrated in England on the fourth Sunday of Lent, from at least  the 17th century until the early 19th. Our Motherís Day, however, has become a secular observance although it did not begin that way. 

       The tradition began through the efforts of Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948) with church services in Grafton, West Virginia, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in honor of Anna Jarvisís own mother. In 1910, the governor of Oklahoma issued the first Motherís Day proclamation. The following year all the states did so. Congress and the Executive Office cooperated in 1913 in a national resolution establishing the second Sunday of May as Motherís Day. Anna Jarvis died, disillusioned that her religious efforts had become almost entirely secular and commercial.

       Last Sunday we crowned the statues of Mary. Every morning during the month of May; after the 8:00 AM Holy Mass, we will recite the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed by Benediction.  PLEASE COME AND JOIN US.

Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
     God wants us to be one with Jesus so that his divine life can flow within us. Our society has inherited a philosophy of rugged individualism that stands in stark contrast to the message of Jesus. Our culture tells us to go it alone. Jesus invites us to be one in him and with each other. We are not to live apart from each other or from our source of life, Jesus, who unites us with the Father and gives us the Holy Spirit.
      In our first reading, Barnabas on Paulís behalf to the disciples, explaining all that Paul had done to preach the name of Jesus. The command to believe in the name of Jesus and love one another is the theme of our second reading. Jesus reminds us in the gospel text that he is the vine that gives life to us, who are the branches.
