Hey Ladies!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the next KC & Ladies Auxiliary joint meeting on Thur Nov 3rd after our 6:30pm potluck supper! We have an exciting agenda so please BE THERE! I have recovered quite well from this last surgery thanks to each of you for prayers, cards, texts and Masses for me.  Your love and support has helped me heal so much faster!

Love in Christ, Amy

President of the K.C. Auxiliary


 Living in the presence of God causes us to dance for joy. It is easy to lose sight of his presence. It is easy to wander from his ways. It is easy to become blind to his presence as a result of the crippling selfishness that we all fall victim to if we are left to our own devices. Fortunately, God is not content leaving us to our own devices.

The more we close the gap between the person we are today and the person God created us to be, the more we will experience that joy. The more we close the gap between the life we are living today and the life Jesus invites us to live through the Gospels, the more we will experience that joy.

So what stops us from closing the gap and dancing for joy?

Who or what is robbing you of joy?
