IMAGE OF GOD CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTER
St. Augustine and St. Monica Parish Rectory
Image of God Crisis Pregnancy Center is a "pro-life" advocacy program that helps women in crisis with spiritual and physical needs as an alternative to abortion. The program offers counseling, prenatal information and free pregnancy tests. Clients earn "Baby Bucks" from the attending parenting classes to purchase new and gently used baby items in the "baby boutique."
The location is on the basement floor of the St. Augustine and St. Monica Parish Rectory. The center is open on Saturdays, 10:30 am - 1:00 pm and Thursdays, 6:00 - 7:30 pm.
Praised Be Jesus Christ!
April 21, 2013
This morning, Jesus the Good Shepherd tells us that He lays down His life freely for you and for me. He finds us worthy of His sacrifice. Let’s accept His interpretation of who we are and walk in that light.
Cook off. Congratulations to the Women and Men who split the winning of the annual cookoff. By the point system, there was a tie. Thanks to those who helped organize the event. Improvements for next year are being discussed.
First Holy Communion. This Sunday, the parish rejoices with the first holy communions of two of our members, Kandace Jones and Jaylyn Lewis. Let us each ask the Holy Spirit to give us the spirit to discern Christ’s presence in His Body and Blood.
Anniversary Concert. This Saturday evening, we will host the “Sixty Years Mother and Thirty Years Daughter Anniversary Concert.” We are very proud of the ministry of our choir director, Marjorie Gabriel-Burrow, who for thirty years has led the Metro Catholic Gospel Choir which she founded. We also thank God for the ministry of Dr. Bessie Watters Gabriel, who has served in the church for sixty years. Tickets are available after Mass or at the door.
One hundredth anniversary. The anniversary committee met on Sunday. The Alumni Mass will be celebrated next week, on April 28th. We will have a good number of sisters and priests (and one brother) who will come for the Mass. Please invite friends and family members who are alumni. Also, there will be a anniversary dinner on Sunday, October 20th, please save the date. Next Sunday, the school building and the Image of God center will be open for visits.
School news. Last week, the architect for the school renovations presented her firm’s plans. The bids are being let out and the timeline is set.
