MARK YOUR CALENDAR! On Monday, January 23, the USCCB has called for a Day of Reparation & Penance to recognize the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Fr. Arbuckle will celebrate Masses at both 8:15 am and 5:30 pm that day.   Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place from 9:00-10:00 am and 6:00-7:00 pm that day.  EVERYONE is encouraged to come before Jesus and offer prayers of reparation for the more than 57 million lives lost to abortion, prayers for healing for the men and women whose lives have been damaged irreparably by the sin of abortion, and prayers of supplication for Roe v. Wade’s overturn.

"Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.  I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted, who is in danger of abortion. Amen.”
(Venerable Bishop Fulton J. Sheen)
