Pro-Life News
Here’s a fact to keep in the front of
your mind – your prayer presence
at abortion facilities saves lives.
Flower and Plants
Former Planned Parenthood workers have said that the no-show rate
for abortion appointments goes as
high as 75% when people are
peacefully praying outside. That’s 3
out of 4 moms who never make it
to their appointments because of
your presence!
Opportunities to remember or honor loved ones and special occasions with
flowers and plants for our church and sanctuary are available for upcoming
weekends. For more information or to check on the availability of dates,
please call Silvia at 788-0811, ext. 318.
Sandwich Sunday
For the abortion industry, this
means fewer customers and less
money. Without income, the abortion centers eventually go out of
The Sandwich Committee makes and collects sandwiches for the needy on the second
Sunday of every month. The next date is Sunday, April 12. Sandwiches may be made
in Gillin Hall or made in advance and left in the refrigerator in the kitchen. The sandwiches, which are donated to the Oliver Gospel Mission, are picked up after the Sunday noon Mass. Please call 736-6453 for more info.
If you’re hesitant to go out and
pray ... think of that 75% statistic.
How encouraging it is to know that
overcoming your reluctance could
just possibly save a life from abortion!
Thou Shall Not Park There
Just a friendly reminder to please observe the handicap, reserved parking, and
fire lanes and to refrain from double-parking at the church and school facilities. Violations may result in fines or towing expenses.

Hospital and Nursing Home Visits
Due to privacy laws, Father may not know
that you (or a family member) have been
hospitalized or moved into a nursing
home. Please call the parish office at 7883252, ext. 318 to let him know.
The Knights recently hosted a Clergy Appreciation/Project Dinner. The evening was enjoyed by all. Although Project Hope
filled the majority of the evening, we want Father Sandy and Father Javier to know how much the Knights appreciate them
being members of our council. We are blessed with their support and understanding.
Last week we mentioned that the heartbeat of the Knights of Columbus is service. This week we want to mention that the
Knights of Columbus are also pro-family. The Knights see the family as the core, foundation, and fabric for all of society. Although the council meetings are for the members, many councils sponsor activities with the family in mind. It’s a great time to
gather together as Catholic Christians and members of the Mystical Body of Christ. Realizing that the youth are an integral part
of society, the Knights seek to foster the development of the child from adolescence to adulthood. Asking for the intercession
of the Holy Family is at the center of prayer for the Knights when it comes to family life.
Hopefully, our commitment to service and family sparks an interest in you. If so, call Membership Chairman Al Lucitti (803)
736-4924 or our Grand Knight Tony Zammarrelli (803) 738-0862 or any other Knight. We are planning a degree ceremony April
23, 2015.
This month we offer congratulations to Madison Pobis: Youth of the Month, Jose Elias Vargas: Knight of the Month and
Gregory and Dee Bundick: Family of the Month.
