      “As you know, I’ll be on vacation for the next two weeks! Fr. George Kramer will be with you next weekend. I trust you will make him welcome and help him in whatever needs to be done. Unfortunately, it means that there won’t be daily Mass on weekdays. God will certainly hear your prayers from home, so remember to remain faithful to your daily prayers. The Word Among Us for July is available in the back of church, pick one up and take it home with you. Keep the parishes going while I’m gone. God Bless.”...Fr. Dave  (If you need a priest while Fr. Dave is gone, you may call St. George in Linn 897-2293, Immaculate Conception in Loose Creek 897-2922, St. George in Hermann, 486-2723, or the chancery 635-9127.)

Religious Liberty - What do we mean by religious liberty?  Religious liberty is the first liberty granted to us by God and protected in the First Amendment to the US Constitution.  It includes more than our ability to go to Mass on Sunday or pray the Rosary at home.  It also encompasses our ability to contribute freely to the common good of all Americans.  Please remember to pray daily and offer sacrifices for rebuilding a culture favorable to life, marriage, and increased protection of religious liberty during the Fortnight for Freedom (June 21-July 4).

Camp Hope is scheduled for July 8-12.  Registration papers have been mailed.  If you did not get yours or know of someone else who would like to register, please contact the parish office.  Some blank registration papers are in back of MPH church.

Immigration Reform – The MO Catholic Conference asks you to contact Senator Roy Blunt (202-224-5721 email at http://blunt.senate.gov) and Senator Claire McCaskill (202-224-6154 email at http://mccaskill.senate.gov) and urge their support for immigration reform.  Message:  Let's not keep good hardworking people in the shadows; there should be a way for the undocumented to become legal residents and citizens. These immigrants will pay more taxes, keep Social Security solvent and help to build a more robust economy that helps us all. A new immigration law will increase the U.S. workforce paying taxes and lead to major reductions in the federal budget deficit.  Our immigration laws should allow families to reunite in this country.
