Pope Francis tells us that we are to contemplate the mysteries of the Holy Rosary “simply and lovingly,” gazing at Jesus as Mary did “at all the moments of his life.” This month’s rosary for life procession to the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic will take place on Saturday, October 25 after the 8am Mass.
St. Matthew's Team members (Peter Theroux, Nathaniel Krieg, Patricia Abad, Kathy Soroka, Norma Canedo, Justin Silvers, and Susan Aspey) will Run for Vocations in the October 26 Marine Corps 10K race. Help the team bridge a shortfall in fundraising. Email Justin Silvers at email@example.com to make a donation.
