Lord 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 our needs.

Hospitalized or Homebound?


If you or a loved one are hospitalized or admitted to a Care Facility,

please call the parish office so we can be informed. Father Jim can

attempt to visit; however, permission to enter hospitals or nursing homes

at this time is limited.


Father Jim is on the Hospice call list and often responds at the request

of Hospice Staff. If homebound Parishioners are in need of Anointing,

Father will safely respond.

If Parishioners are unable to attend Mass call the parish to arrange homebound Communion.

Requests can be called into the Rectory phone (561-1563). Father

rarely answers because the number is usually used by

telemarketers. Please leave a message on the answering machine

and Father will return your call.

Teen Corner

Do you think it’s possible to sin by sitting perfectly still and doing nothing? God wants us to share with those who are in need. The first step in doing so is to recognize or be aware of those who are in need. To sin by commission is to commit an act that directly hurts another. To sin by omission is to stand by idly while someone is suffering. In this weekend’s Gospel, Jesus tells a story that describes the sin of omission.

Volunteer Opportunities


Ministers of Hospitality are entrusted to foster a sense of welcoming

and belonging to those gathered to experience God in the

celebration of the Eucharist. Individuals, couples and families are

invited to become Ministers of Hospitality.

Extraordinary Ministers of Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Communion are called to serve the

very life of the Church, the living Body of Christ, in helping in the

distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ. Required training

for these Ministers is scheduled once a year at our Parish and

Ministers are commissioned by the Bishop for three year terms.

EMs can also, if so chosen, carry Communion as an extension of

our Eucharist to shut-ins, nursing homes and hospitals.


Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion training lecture

Click Here


A Sacristan is a commissioned Extraordinary Minister of Communion

who makes ready all that is needed for the celebration of

Mass: the sanctuary, altar table, bread and wine, and the vessels.

He or she also assists the Presider with the distribution of Holy

Communion and insures that all Liturgical Ministers are present.


Those interested in participating in the Lector Ministry must understand

that proclaiming Scripture is much more than being a

good reader. The Lector must proclaim in such a way that all the

people will listen attentively and understand the Word of God.

Training is offered and practice is important.

Music -- Cantors & Accompanists

The Ministry of Cantor is open to anyone who is comfortable

and capable of leading the congregation in sung prayer.

Our Lady of the Meadows also welcomes experienced instrumentalists,

including pianists, who are willing to minister at liturgies.

Those individuals interested in participating in the Music Ministry

must be willing to commit to weekend Mass scheduling and

rehearsals needed for special Liturgies.

Altar Servers

The Ministry of serving at the altar is to assist the presider (priest)

at Mass, to lead procession in and out of the Worship area, to

prepare and clear the altar table. Girls and boys, fourth grade and

older, can be a Server.


All Ministers must be committed to regular scheduling, early

arrival and substitution effort when unable to be present when


All Ministers will be asked to attend in-service sessions.

love God above all. And instead of hating the people you think are war

makers, hate the appetites and the disorder in your own soul, which are

the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate

greed -- but hate these things in yourself, not in another.”

{K}eep the commandment without stain or reproach

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  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.

" Above 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 ."
