The Catholic Church has long held October to be the month in which we prayerfully celebrate our firm belief that all human life is sacred. The Diocesan Marriage and Family Life Office reminds you that, as Pope John Paul II wrote in his 1995 Encyclical “The Gospel of Life”:
The family proclaims life when parents teach children to communicate openly, to value all life and to fulfill their God-given mission.
The family celebrates life through prayer, thanking God for the gift of life, and for each other.
The family serves life by promoting the welfare and well-being of its own members and the members of the greater “family of life.”
OUR BLESSED MOTHER
Mary always points us to God, reminding us of God's infinite goodness. She helps us to open our hearts to God's ways, wherever those may lead us. Honored under the title “Queen of Peace,” Mary encourages us to cooperate with Jesus in building a peace based on justice, a peace that respects the fundamental human rights (including religious rights) of all peoples.
CARITAS: YOUTH ACTIVITIES
CARITAS is Latin for Charity and is open to all Junior High Students (6th -8th grade). The Jr. High School group meets once a month (usually the 3rd Tuesday of the month) for a regular meeting and once a month for a social event. CARITAS focuses on fostering the prayer and sacramental lives of our students, all the while incorporating them into a positive loving Catholic environment. St. Patrick has extended an invitation to our students to join in these meetings.
