Kitchitwa Kateri Prayer Conference

Prayer Days 2012

Reaching New Heights

A couple of weeks ago, a group of youth and youth leaders from some of our city parishes climbed to the top of Mount McKay.  After reaching the top, we prayed the Rosary and made the climb back down just before the approaching thunderstorm caught up to us and broke loose.  We're thankful for having had an enjoyable, safe and spiritually uplifting journey!

Our next parish youth night will be on Sunday, August 26, beginning at 7 p.m. in the church hall...

"Pope of the Eucharist"

We celebrate today the memorial of  Pope St. Pius X, a great leader of the Church whose life was molded and motivated by a remarkable love for the Holy Eucharist. 
He encouraged frequent reception of Holy Communion and solid catechesis for the faithful, and he made it possible for children to receive Holy Communion at an earlier age. 
His personal motto was "to restore all things in Christ," something which he energetically and enthusiasticly strove to do until the day he died.  St. Pius X, pray for us!
