As we approach our national elections on Nov. 6th, I pray that all of us are praying for this most important election of our time. Pray that we will elect the leaders that will continue to make our nation great and strong, that will work to insure that we are a nation of righteousness and justice, and a nation that respects life, marriage, family, and religion. So I urge everyone to vote as an informed Catholic. There are many resources available for Catholics to help understand the issues, please make use of them. Remember if we vote for evil (through voting for a candidate that promotes an evil) we cooperate in that evil, if we pay taxes that go toward evil, we cooperate in that evil, and cooperation in evil is itself evil and a sin. We do indeed need to pray for our country and our future.
All Saints Holy Day and All Souls day are this week. I look forward to our special celebrations.

Parish Mission at Immaculate Conception parish in Loose Creek Nov. 5-7 (Monday-Wednesday) at 7:00 p.m.  Presented by Fr. Mike Coleman.  Theme:  “Growing Deeper in Love with Jesus!”  Details on poster in back of church.

Your financial support for the work of our parish, of our Diocese, and of the Church throughout the world is, in fact, one way to express this gratitude. Your gift to the 2013 Catholic Stewardship Appeal is greatly appreciated and needed.
