Is there such a thing as one celebration or feast of our church that is more important than another? Well yes, I suppose there is. The feasts of our Savior are up there at the top… With the importance that we place on Mary’s intercession, today’s feast is also one to remind us of who we are and the importance of living our lives so as to give glory to God as she did. Because of her part in bringing Christ into our world, she was given a special gift of not experiencing death. We pray thru her intercession that our passing from this life too might not be a struggle for us or those we love.

Totus Tuus has been a great week for the children and teens who have taken advantage of this opportunity…so Thank You to you parents who have ‘gone the extra mile’ to have this program be a success. If active and noisy children is any indication that they are learning about faith, then we have nothing to worry about. Of course there is the quiet time too in the classroom and in church when they are putting the lessons of faith to the test. The team, Will, Whitney, Abigail, Chris, have done a great job of teaching in a way that the children are comfortable with learning about our Catholic faith. Those who go to daily Mass have had to sacrifice a little because Mass was changed to 11:30, but that gave me the opportunity to participate more with the Totus Tuus week for which I am grateful. May God bless you all, Father Floyd McKinney.
And did you know that Totus Tuus started in our very own St. Michael’s Church?! Paula Sevart and Mary Kate Smith made the awesome banner and bulletin board in all these photos!
