We strive to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by gratefully sharing our many gifts from God
our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of
the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had
chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin
Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of
Mary, our mother, with confidence in her
protection may receive strength and comfort in all

Thinking about Separation or Divorce? - Is your marriage or that of a relative or friend heading for divorce? Do you know how to save that marriage? Or do you feel helpless? Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi with a long i) is designed to help troubled marriages regain their health. It helps spouses uncover or re-awaken the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together. The program is highly successful in saving hurting marriages, even bringing reconciliation to couples who have already separated or divorced. For confidential information about or to register for upcoming programs, call (303) 317-5111 or email:email@example.com or visit the web site at www.HelpOurMarriage.com
Do you know someone who has never been baptized, but has asked

Ministry of Consolation -- Bereavement Ministry
It is the goal of the community of Our Lady of the Meadows
that no member should suffer the loss of a loved one in isolation.
To that end, we are pleased to offer ongoing supportive
and pastoral services for the bereaved through the ministry of
consolation. These services include a monthly support group
on the second Thursday of each month; routine contact by
telephone and mail, as desired; assistance at funerals and receptions.
All services are free and available to parishioners or
any family member who is experiencing the loss of a loved one.
It is our hope that, through these pastoral services, those suffering
a loss may come to know the loving support of the faith
community. For more information contact the parish office, Jan
Sciortino at 561-0157 or Paula Giordano at 561-2958.

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?
I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20
Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
LOVE is to will the good of the other.
Whom you would change, you must first love
AND WE DO!
all, let your love for one another be intense, because
love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one
another without complaining. As each one has
received a gift, use it to serve one another as good
stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it
be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with
the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong
glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen

You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
