Sunday's Epistle from the Second letter of St. Paul to Timothy 3:14-4:2
"Beloved: Remain faithful to what you have learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it, and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power: proclaim the word: be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching."
The Magnificat , October 2013 vol. 15, No. 8.
This old combine was repurposed into a climbing toy for kids with a slide off the back.
Talk about "Don't make a wave..."
The idea was to answer 10 questions at stations posted inside the Maze. These questions were about the game Angry Birds which I have never played. Depending on the answer, one was directed to go either right or left and you would keep taking rights or lefts until the next question clue spot turned up. The mom I was with texted her teen-age sons to get the answers to all the Angry Birds' Trivia.
This was a terrific Field Trip. It made no difference that instead of the planned picnic, we ate our lunch in the car as we drove home in the pouring down rain.

The Living Rosary stones were placed here as part of an Eagle Scout project by a young man in our parish.
Another Eagle Scout project located here is the Outdoor Stations of the Cross. These we did as well, in an abbreviated way
St. Francis, Pray for us!
To our delight, Meg, Jon and the kids, as well as Tori joined us so it was very special. We knew how much it meant to Natalie to be a part of this "School Tradition".
John, welcome to a long tradition in Dad's family. Good luck this year!
