St. James L.I.F.E. Ministry

To show our Parish's support for "Serving Others in God's Love: Religious Freedom Week", June 22nd, The Feast of Sts. Thomas More & John Fisher, through June 29th which has been designated by The United States Bishops, St. James LIFE Ministry invites everyone to pray the patriotic rosary after the 8:30 am Mass on Wednesday, July 4th, starting about 9:15 am.  We will meet in the parking lot in front of the school where we will pray the rosary. This would be a great way to start your 4th of July celebration. Learn more about the Religious Freedom Week at:
www.usccb.org/ReligiousFreedomWeek. Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher were martyred in 1535 for standing up for the sanctity of marriage and the freedom of the Church. In our country today, the Church faces challenges to her freedom to serve in healthcare, child welfare services, and education.  Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher show us what faithful service looks like. May their example continue to illuminate the path for us, as we seek to faithfully serve our Church and country.

“Religious freedom remains one of America's most precious possessions.  And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.”  - Pope Francis
