If you have not given to date please prayerfully consider making a donation, no donation is too small. Thank you to all those parishioners who have contributed.

The Western Knights football team is gearing up for another season. The diocesan program is made up of boys entering the 4th through 8th grades in the next school year that attend St. Mary Magdalene, St. Mary’s German Village and Trinity Catholic schools or are enrolled in PSR programs. The cost is $100 and includes all equipment except shoes. Please visit the Trinity Catholic School website to download, complete and return an interest form. The interest form can be found at http://Trinity.cdeducation.org under the Activities then Athletic Association. This form is not a commitment on your part; it will be used by the staff to send information later this summer about official sign-ups.

Tuesday, June 5th at 7:00p.m.the Knights of Columbus Council 5429 will show the movie, A Voice for Life, The Melissa Ohden Story.  Melissa is the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion in 1977.  Fulfilling the purpose that she believes God set out for her when He saved her from the certain death of the abortion attempt, Melissa is truly a voice for the voiceless.  Pro-Life advocates who appear in this film include Melissa Ohden, Fr. Frank Pavone, John C. Wilke, MD, Alveda C. King, Fr. Jonathan Morris, Dr. Theresa Burke and Michael Clancy.

Melissa is also the keynote speaker for the 2012 Greater Columbus Right to Life Spiritus Banquet to be held at Villa Milano August 19th.  Council 5429 purchased a table for 10 at the banquet and will donate those 10 dinners by holding a raffle for all those who attend the movie presentation on the 5th.  A panel of local pro-life advocacy groups will be available after the movie for Q&A.  Refreshments will also be served. Please join us in the Atrium on June 5th.
