Respect Life Month 2016

rlm2016posterpic  October is annually observed as Respect Life Month in Catholic Churches across our nation. This provides a wonderful opportunity to teach our children the truth about the dignity of the human person, and to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with supporting the dignity of the human person, and therefore the gift of every person’s life. Human life is under constant attack in our culture today; from the moment of conception to natural death. Life is threatened because we no longer understand what it means to be human, and what our humanity calls forth from us in our responsibility to care for other persons. John Paul II in his encyclical the Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae, EV) tells us that “For the Christian, it is an absolute imperative to respect, love and promote the life of every brother and sister, in accordance with the requirements of God’s bountiful love in Jesus Christ.” n. 77

Back-to-Basics Lecture Series


The 2016-17 season will focus on Marian Apparitions. In May 2017, the Church will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. In order to prepare for that event, we’ll take a look at what constitutes an authentic apparition; and look more closely at the apparitions of Guadalupe and Lourdes.

We will also have a few other diverse topics, like “Purgatory and Indulgences” and “The Mass in Slow Motion.” (See the schedule below for the full list and dates.)

We’re happy to have some special guest speakers this season. Former OLQAS pastor, Fr. Randy Moreau, will join us in December for the talk on Our Lady of Guadalupe; and Msgr. Jeff DeBlanc, who was parochial vicar at Sacred Heart across town in the mid-1980s, will talk on Our Lady of Lourdes in February.

Please be sure to join us every second Monday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm at the Family Life Center. Everyone is invited to attend!

6 Months Old:

I am 6 months old now. I just opened my eyes; since I was 2 months old they were sealed shut. I wonder what you look like. I can hear sounds, too! It’s great to have someone praying for me.

Your spiritually adopted baby is developing quite beautifully now. Babies born prematurely at this time have a very good chance of surviving. The medical advances in caring for extremely small newborns are extraordinary indeed. Justin O’Connor has remarked that the Roe v. Wade decision is on a collision course with itself. Each passing year, we witness medical advances that allow our medical professionals to save younger and younger premature infants.
