National elections are this Tuesday. It is certainly one of the most important elections of our lifetime. If you are still undecided about how to vote as a Catholic, please vote with the Church, vote pro-life, vote for a return to Christian values which are under attack today by this administration. Vote for a change. If undecided, read and reflect on Archbishop William Lori’s address on Religious Liberty which can be found at www.MOcatholic.org. It is time for Catholics, for us, to witness our faith in the voting booths.
We congratulate Doris Rost who is being honored this week as a Hometown Hero. She has been running Camp Hope for our kids for so many summers, that we have lost count of how many it has been. We are truly appreciative of all that she has done for our parishes and our kids through Camp Hope. She is truly a Hometown Hero.
