Respect Life Weekend

Oct 8, 2018

THIS IS RESPECT LIFE WEEKEND.

   As the Lord’s People, we are directed to reverence, protect and safeguard human life at all of its stages and in all circumstances. As Roman Catholics, we believe that the Lord guides the formation of our consciences and hopefully our resulting attitudes and behavior in a distinctive way through the teachings of the Holy Father and those of the Bishops. As an expression of the teaching of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, on the Death Penalty, please read the bulletin insert entitled Statement from Bishop Daniel Thomas Regarding Pope Francis’ Revision of the Wording of the Catechism of the Catholic Church Concerning the Death Penalty.

   I hope and pray that this current teaching about the Death Penalty will influence our own attitude and manner of expressing ourselves on this important matter.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Nelson Beaver – Pastor
