Our Belief: “Human life is sacred because it involved the creative action of God and it remains forever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is the sole end. God alone is the lord of life from its beginning to its end: no one can under any circumstances claim himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being.” ( 2258 Catechism of the Catholic Church. )
Euthanasia and assisted suicide can appear a reasonable and even compassionate solution with suffering of individuals and families struggling with illness of the dying process. Yet these are not real solutions-they do not solve human problems, but only take the lives of those most in need of unconditional love. ( U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.)
“The Catholic Church is not desensitized to the pain of those who suffer. On the contrary, it identifies its values and sees life and death as sacred. This does not mean that a person suffering in the final stages of a terminal illness must be kept alive at all costs.
There are moral, spiritual, ethical, and medical questions that must be in place when assisting the dying. The Anointing of the Sick and Hospice are two important ministries that aid in dealing with the terminally ill.’ (Reflection Excerpt from Fr. Dan Bachner.)
Please call the Church if you have any questions, concerns, or need help. Its our aim as a community of faith to be present to those who suffer and those who are dying. Pray for the sick, poor, and homeless also please. Pray for us, God’s lost lambs.

FROM CHRIST IS OUR HOPE
Sister Ann Shields Correspondent Of The Catholic Diocese Of Illinois.
Good news story that I believe hits home in these tough times we face. Sister Shields make a very good point for all of us. In this writer’s opinion. Hope you enjoy this as I did reading it. God Bless………….
This is a good moment to look at the issues of faith in Christ. Times are very difficult in our country right now. People are losing their homes and jobs. Fear is rampant. When everything is out of control, what can you do?
First, open your Bible to the Gospel Of Mark and read Chapter 5 verse 21-43, out loud. do this now before you continue reading this article. Keep the Bible next to you. Remember that the word inside is living and active, shaper than any two edged sword. It has the power to separate bone from marrow. (Hebrews4-12) In other words, it has the power to reach inside of you touch your spirit and help you see truth more clearly than you ever have before.
God’s word has the power to change your life. Because it is easy to become distracted, I want your eyes and your ears to take in words so that the life-giving power of it can penetrate beyond a superficial understandings. Approach this passage with much faith as you have no matter how little it may be.
you’ll notice that the passage contains two stories both teach us a lot about our faith and perseverance.
Let take a look at the first story. Jesus has been ministering to great crowds of people., calling out demons and healing the sick. Ask yourself this question? ‘ What would I done under similar circumstances? Then ask the lord to increase your faith in him. Pay attention here; note the scripture says Jesus says to her, “Daughter your faith has saved you.” Jesus listens to us in the same way. God is never put off by our sins and failing if we are repentant. Never let anything hold you back from bringing your needs to him.
As you think about these two stories of healing and resurrection, think about what lessons they have for you? Where are you weak? Can you humbly and honestly place weakness before Jesus and ask him to increase your faith? Ask for a faith that can burn steadily no matter the seemingly insurmountable obstacles: work, family, health crises. Trust in his love and “Do not be afraid. ”
Here’s a page that said it all ‘ LOOKING ABORTION IN THE EYE.’ Please look at and remember, this is not a useless cell no one cares for but a human being that is in the womb. Over 60% of Americans disagree on abortion today. More Americans want to end abortion. Abortion is the cause of other medical problems that happens to women later on. Over 3,000 American Children are victims of abortion. This writer feels that we have to respect life and that we are the product of God the almighty.
Afterwords, please sign the petition to help end Abortion as we know it. PLEASE NOTE: THE IMAGES HERE ARE OF MATURE NATURE AND MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER VIEWERS OR SENSITIVE PERSONS.
