There is no admission Page Three March 1, 2015 Religious Education News The following is a message from Bishop Malone that came via email this past week. Bishop Malone is the chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth. While it is addressed to his fellow members of that committee, I bring the letter to your attention because its points are well worthy of our consideration, both clergy and laity alike. Schedule: Classes resume Sunday, March 1st. Catholic Trivia Answer: The “Alleluia” and the “Gloria” are missing from Sunday Mass during Lent .. Saint Quote of the Week: “The patient and humble endurance of the cross whatever nature it may be is the highest work we have to do.” St. Katherine Drexel, Feast Day March 3rd. Dear Brothers, Greetings as we approach the holy season of Lent and the annual commemoration of our Lord’s Passion. Catechism Quote of the Week: 1646 “By its very nature conjugal love requires the inviolable fidelity of the spouses. This is the consequence of the gift of themselves which they make to each other. Love seeks to be definitive; it cannot be an arrangement “until further notice”. The “intimate union of marriage, as a mutual giving of two persons, and the good of the children, demand total fidelity from the spouses and require an unbreakable union be- As you may be aware, a film called Fifty Shades of Grey is being released in theaters on February 13, 2015. The books and film, marketed as a romantic story, are a graphic portrayal of a young woman agreeing to be abused and degraded in a sexual relationship. Leaders in the Religious Alliance Against Pornography (RAAP) have stated, “The contrast between the message of Fifty Shades of Grey and God’s design for self-giving and self-sacrificing love, marriage and sexual intimacy could not be greater.” As you know, we as bishops have spoken with a united voice against domestic violence, and in particular, violence against women (see When I Call for Help, 1992, rev. 2002). We have also emphasized the need to overcome the exploitation of sex and violence in communications (see Renewing the Mind of the Media, 1998), VOCATION Peter, James and John had a ‘mountaintop experience’ with Jesus. So too do those who are faithful to Jesus, experiencing His marvelous presence as they follow in His footsteps as a priest, deacon, brother or sister.

His uncle, an agency employee, told him about Catholic Charities’ Work and Gain Education and Employment Skills Program. He was able to complete job readiness training and hospitality training through the Center for Transportation and Excellence and was offered a six-week paid work experience with Catholic Charities’ Maintenance Department. “I know what I did, and I know that is not the life I want to live,” said Keshaun. “All I needed was a chance to prove myself.” Find Good Within.
