“Souls who spread the honor of My mercy I shield through their entire lives as a tender mother for her
infant, and at the hour of death I will not be a judge for them, but the Merciful Savior.” (Diary, 1075)
PET SHELTER DRIVE:
There are so many abandoned pets and over-crowded no-kill shelters that provide basic care to lost or unwanted animals. Possibly, hard times have fallen upon responsible owners and the last resort is to take the family pet to a shelter. Some pets are just left alone on the road or in the wilderness. There is a great need in our area shelters to care for these innocent creatures.
Fortunately, our parishioners have stepped up in the past to provide food and necessities to help alleviate shortages created by the sheer volume of unwanted cats, dogs, rabbits and more.
In collaboration with the Blessing of Animals, the weekend of October 7 & 8, our cenacle will sponsor an animal shelter drive for all 4-legged furry friends. The rear social hall doors will open at 12:00 p.m. Saturday, October 7th through the end of 10:30 mass on Sunday, October 8th to drop off items. No donations will be collected after noon on Sunday. All donations, including food, snacks, toys, bedding, etc. are always appreciated but please no down filled comforters that present a choke hazard.
What a great way to honor St. Francis on his feast day and remember his own love for animals and all of nature!
MARY'S BOOK NOOK:
Tired of reading about news that makes you cringe? Ever wonder why someone else knows so much about our faith, sacraments, ethics, etc. than you thought you did? Did you see someone walking out of church with a book, or several, tucked under their arms?
Well, wonder no more as Queenship presents a re-opening of a well-stocked library aptly dubbed “Mary’s Book Nook.” Please allow yourself the opportunity to become acquainted with a myriad of authors and books steeped in faith-filled wisdom! Books of many titles, and rows of DVDs will chase any doubt that Mary’s Book Nook is a world of endless learning possibilities.
There is no sign out! Feel free to keep a book that particularly touches your heart or would like to use for future reference in your home. Returned books may be placed on the glass table or in the basket under the table. The library is always open, but most access will be conveniently available before or after any mass.
We need to educate ourselves, our children, but mostly, our souls! Happy reading and welcome to Mary’s Book Nook!
