Hey Ladies!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the next KC & Ladies joint meeting on Thur Oct 6th! Thank you to everyone who has been praying for me, sending cards, texts and Masses. Thanks to each of you for your love and support. 

We have so many exciting things to talk about! Congratulations to the Ladies who cooked and served the Diocesan Supper for the Knights Weds Sep 28th! It was a fantastic success! The participants recognized the cooks & servers with applause and the end of the conference!

Points Before the Meeting for October 2022:

  • KC Ladies Auxiliary meeting: Thu Oct 6th at 6:30 PM in the Family Center will begin with a potluck supper (so bring something yummy to eat!) After the joint meeting with the Knights, the Ladies will stay in the Family Center to conduct our separate meeting.  If you want to play the 50/50 game also bring your dollar bills! $$$ The winner is drawn & announced at the end of the meeting…

President of the KC 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?
