Bobcat E-Envelope

October 20, 2022

Hi SPS Families,

October is designated by the Catholic Church as the "Month of the Rosary." St. John Paul II called the rosary his favorite prayer, "in which we meditate with Mary upon the mysteries which she as a Mother meditated on in her heart (Lk. 2:19.)."

Our SPS and Religious Education students have made a living Rosary to share with our community! Feel free to watch below and pray with our young people. We also held a Rosary Prayer Service this week that was led by our 5th-grade class, check out the photos below.

Our Lady of Rosary, pray for us!

Dear Parishioners,

I have found in my own life and in that many parishioners that I have come to know that sometimes it is hard to make new friends as your life situation changes either because of a move, retirement or after a death of a loved one, whether it is a spouse or a parent that you spent a great deal of your time with. As a priest, I have been fortunate to meet many good people — some have become good friends, but others, because of distance or whatever, have become less close over the years...
