Missy is blessed to have the opportunity to share her love of Jesus with the children at John Paul the Great Academy where she teaches Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and art classes. Missy had the distinct privilege of spending two years information with the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia in Nashville, TN. She counts those years as some of the most important in her life.

Parishioners For Life

Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

A Pro-life Lent

The traditional practice of “giving something up for Lent” is a practice of self-denial; our Lord said that to follow him, we must deny our very selves. It means we say No to ourselves and Yes to God and others. This reverses the pattern of sin, which says Yes to ourselves and No to God and others. In our culture, the most violent No to God and others is abortion. Over three thousand times every day in our nation, people say No to a little child so that they may say Yes to their fears or their plans. This Lent, as we practice self-denial, let’s think of these children. Let’s offer our sacrifices for them. May all say Yes to God and Yes to the unborn. For more ideas about how to foster respect for the unborn this Lent, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
