PRAY THE ROSARY!!

Have you been troubled by the apparent loss of a just and moral society, or perhaps, some suffering in your family and wanted to help but did not know how? If you are praying the rosary, then you are already helping!

Sr. Lucy of Fatima said the following in 2002 before her death; “The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary, to such an extent that there is NO problem, no matter how difficult it is, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, or even the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is NO problem, I tell you no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary” - Sr. Lucy of Fatima.

If you are not already praying the daily rosary, please join all those who are! If you would like to receive a rosary and instructions on praying it, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at 317-888-0873

This weekend is the Collection for the Church in Latin America! Many people in Latin America and the Caribbean do not have access to church programs and ministries because of a rising secular culture, rural terrain, and a shortage of ministers. Your generosity makes it possible for our brothers and sisters in Latin America and the Caribbean to share in the life of the Church and grow closer to Christ. Please be generous to the special collection! Place your donation in the regular collection basket. To learn more, please visit www.usccb.org/latin-america

On Saturday, February 23rd and Sunday, February 24th, the Little Sisters of the Poor from St. Augustine’s Home in Indianapolis will be at our parish seeking support for their ministry to the elderly poor. As they celebrate the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Little Sisters in the United States, they look forward to sharing with you how you can participate in their mission. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, they offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself. There will be a second collection, and the sisters will be available with envelopes after Mass if you wish to send in a donation at a later time. You can read more or make a donation online at: http://www.littlesistersofthepoorindianapolis.org  Thank you and God Bless you!
