View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Mass for Life

There's a Mass for Life at 6:30 tonight at Focus Pregnancy Help Center, 86 University Avenue. Father Walter Cushing will be the celebrant. Food and refreshments will follow.

Sadly, I will probably not be able to make it (family).

I've also heard that we may have another 40 Days for Life effort this fall. I would love to see expanded involvement from Catholic parishes and groups in this prayerful, positive effort. I would also love to see Bishop Clark and other diocesan officials getting involved.

Lee - Bishop Clark had a chance to get involved last year and NO deal. He had a chance to march on Good Friday. Again, no Bishop Clark. He had to march with the interfaith crowd.

Hope all is at least somewhat better now after your 2 pets had to be put down last week. So sad.

Until the day he leaves office, Bishop Clark will have a chance to join us at one of the events.

I will remain hopeful.

Since hope springs eternal, I pray that he joins us. I'll see you at the Mass for Life tonight if you find you can make it.

Oremus pro invicem!

Lee,

We have officially registered Rochester for the Fall campaign! Spread the word! We'll be having an informational meeting next Tuesday, Aug. 4th, at 6:30pm at Focus Pregnancy Help Center at 86 University Ave.
Thanks for all your help!

Bishop Clark won't be attending the Fr. Corapi conference this August, even though he was extended an invitation.
