Happy Birthday, Holy Father!

Happy Birthday, Pope Benedict XVI!

Let us pray for our Holy Father today that he may be blessed in all he does! Thank you Jesus for this wonderful leader for our Church!

Happy Feast Day, Clare Bernadette!

Today we celebrate the feast day of St. Bernadette of Lourdes. As a young child, Saint Bernadette received visions of the Blessed Virgin. Today pilgrims from all around the world travel to the place of the visions in Lourdes, France. She is the patron saint for people struggling with illness and those persecuted for being pious.

Today pray for all those who are afflicted in any way, and for the courage to live the faith with vigor and joy, even in the face of persecution.
Ideas for Celebrating St. Bernadette
  • Create a french themed meal-crepes are always great!
  • Make Blueberry muffins or smoothies in honor of Our Lady!
  • Visit a Marian Grotto and offer a prayer to Mary!

He is Risen!

May your hearts be filled with joy and peace during this Easter season. Lent was a time of prayer and sacrifice, and now the Easter Season is here! Here are some pictures of the kids celebrating the Risen Christ!
