Sr. Faustina Maria was interviewed by St. Gabriel’s Radio – Answering the Call – about her vocation story.
DON’T DO IT! WHY?
“The union between God and man
in Holy Communion
is the one thing that terrifies hell.”
(Pope Benedict XVI)
“If we can’t receive this Eucharist, if we can’t receive your Body and Blood, where are we going to go? What will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for? A better song? One that makes you feel better? Will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for a homegroup, where you can read the Bible together? Will you exchange the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for a prayer meeting? It’s a question we all have to answer. We are fed as Catholics on a diet of the Word of God and we are fed by his Body and his Blood. This all takes place right there in the Mass. A beautiful, beautiful thing.” (Jeff Cavins)
God is so good! We had about 100 girls ages 8-18 attend our annual Torchbearers of the Queen Retreat. The Winner Family generously donated their land and their time to make this retreat possible! We thank all of our volunteers, chaperones, and prayer supporters - because of you these young ladies were able to spend 3-5 days with Jesus Eucharistic and grow in His Love, while meeting others who can journey with them in their Faith.
Hope you enjoy the video!
Our Chapel at the Motherhouse
The mural of God the Father is complete!
The altar, reredos, communion rail, cruet table, and ambo were all hand made by our Lay Missionary, Wes Baker.
The Statue of St. Joseph was donated - we are still looking for a matching statue of Mary.
The Tabernacle came from a closed Church.
The candlesticks and many other Chapel Supplies were generously donated by Tom & Audrey Ruthman.
The Chapel is named after God, the Father.
His arms are spread wide above His Love made Flesh - Jesus, Eucharistic
The angels hold the banners which read the Fatima Prayer so dear to our hearts...
