Pennies for Heaven Collection

Pennies (1)

Our Knights of Columbus, will be collecting donations to support seminarians after April 18 & 19 weekend Masses.

The collection, called Pennies for Heaven, is an international fundraiser that helps seminarians around the world.

In our community, the Diocese of Columbus Vocations Office uses the Pennies for Heaven donations to fund various vocation programs. These programs encourage young men who are considering entering the priesthood. Such programs include staging Vocation Days at seminaries and preparing high-quality informational videos. Last year, Knights of Columbus Councils in the State of Ohio raised $103,000 through the Pennies for Heaven program, nearly half of which came from Knights of Columbus councils in the Diocese of Columbus.

Weekly Scripture Challenge with Tim Rimmer

Weekly Scripture Challenge

When Jesus said to his disciples, “As the Father has sent me, so I send you …  Receive the Holy Spirit.”  What will happen to Peter?  Until now in scripture, Peter always seemed to stick his foot in his mouth; he’s like a bull in a china shop.  But now he truly understands Jesus is the Son of God.  Peter will become the “rock” of the Church.  Challenge – how does Peter change?  Start with Jn 22:15-19, then note the Peter in Acts 1-11 and finally in his wisdom, 1, 2 Pt letters.

Saint Bernadette Soubirous

img-Saint-Bernadette-of-Lourdes

Born: January 7, 1844
Died: April 16, 1879
Memorial: April 16
Canonized: December 8, 1933
Bernadette was the oldest of six children and grew up very poor. On 11 February 1858, around the time of her first Communion, she received a vision of the Virgin. She received seventeen more in the next five months, and was led to a spring of healing waters. She moved into a house with the Sisters of Nevers at Lourdes where she lived, worked, and learned to read and write. At age 22 they admitted Bernadette into their order. Always sick herself, she died with a prayer for Mary‘s aid. Since the appearances of Mary to young Bernadette in 1858, more than 200 million people have visited the shrine of Lourdes.
