Our mission is to hear the Word, share in the sacrifice, serve the Lord, and create community.

A note from Sister:

Pondering Samuel's call...
Are you and I ready like Samuel to say: "Speak Lord your servant is listening?" I am sure we are, I have seen you respond to those in need, time and time again. I have watched you help at funeral and fish dinners; organize and participate with all kinds of marathons, fundraisers for the sick and assist at a farm fire or harvest the crops for a neighbor and help the needy in Kentucky.  We all join together in prayer for those in need.  Today is World Day of Migrants and Refugees, and we are invited to "come and see" the faithful and works of so many volunteers, organizations and parishes serving migrants and refugees.  We may not be able to go to where they live, but we can support them with our prayers, love and support. 

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your Christmas cards, photos and gifts.  I cannot thank you enough for your thoughtful messages and prayers which are helping me to heal.  I daily pray in gratitude for you and your families.  I am getting stronger each day with lots of walking and 3x each day I have exercises and heat.  2x weekly I have physical therapy at the clinic.
