Grandparents Prayer by Pope Benedict XVI
Our next meeting of the Catholic Grandparents Group will be on Saturday 12/21/19 from noon until 1:30 in the Rectory Meeting Room. Lunch will be served. Desert will be potluck so please bring a desert to share, if you want. We will continue a book study of “The Catholic Grandparents Handbook” by Lorene Hanley Duquin at this meeting. Come and meet other grandparents and have a good lunch and some fun.
As Catholic grandparents we pray for our children and grandchildren to continue in the faith. We know that many struggle to do so. At the meetings we are able to share our experiences and talk about our responsibility to do what we can to share our faith with our families.

“Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin becoming a saint”– St. Theresa of Lisieux
The Carmelites form one such religious family. This family took its origin on the Biblical Mount Carmel, drawing inspiration from the great Prophet Elijah. As brothers and sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary they model on her life of union with God. The Carmelite order has earned the fame of being the treasury of Contemplative Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross being the most authoritative voices on the subject in all Christendom. May God inspire many hearts to inherit this rich treasure of deeper prayer life!
Our parish wishes to offer opportunities to get acquainted with this Carmelite heritage. That could further lead to the establishment of a secular Carmelite community of the faithful of our Parish. Hearty welcome to all….
