We will be hosting the EMHC Diocese’s training on August 19, 2017. The Diocese training will be from 9:00am till about 12:00 and the St. Teresa’s training will be from 12:00-12:45. We will have registration signup after all Mass on August 5-6, 2017.

July the Month Dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus

The month of July is dedicated to The Precious Blood of Jesus. The entire month falls within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time. The last portion of the liturgical year represents the time of our pilgrimage to heaven during which we hope for reward.From the time of the Passion, when Christ poured out His blood for us all, the faithful have practiced devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

Our Lady of Fatima and the Six Apparitions

 As we continue to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Fatima, we recall 6 separate apparitions at Fatima to the three children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta. At times they were alone. On other occasions, others were in attendance.

May Apparition Our Lady added, 'Pray the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war.'

June Apparition “Jesus wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world. I promise salvation to those who embrace it; and these souls will be beloved of God like flowers arranged by me to adorn His throne”.

July Apparition "Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say many times, especially when you make a sacrifice, 'O Jesus, this is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary".

August Apparition 'Pray, pray much, and sacrifice for sinners, for many souls go to hell because there is no one to sacrifice and pray for them.'

September Apparition “Continue to pray the Rosary to obtain the end of the war. In October, Our Lord will also come, as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and Saint Joseph with the Child Jesus, to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices, but He does not want you to sleep with the ropes; wear them only during the day”. (The children were wearing ropes around their waists as a sacrifice for sinners.)

October Apparition “I wish to tell you that I want a chapel built here in my honor. I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue to pray the rosary every day. The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes.”

Pope Francis Intentions

Pope Francis Prayer Intentions for July
Lapsed Christians That our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and the beauty of the Christian life. 
Pope’s July 2017 prayer intention for lapsed Christians.
“Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ—his faithful and inexhaustible love,” Pope Francis said in the brief video. “When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus.”
The Pope added:
We must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope—with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.
