Here we are at the end of another summer and getting ready for school. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer this year and this finds you happy and healthy!
We had our ice cream social, it was well attended on Saturday as the weather was perfect. Mother nature had other plans for Sunday so we implemented plan B and held it in the social hall. There are photos on our web site and Facebook page for your viewing pleasure. Click here for Photos
We also had our camping trip and pot luck at Algonac State Park. The weather was perfect and a good time was had by all. We attended mass at St. Catherine's then had dinner and some good fellowship. There will be photos on the web and Facebook soon from this event as well. Click here for Photos
Coming up we have Corporate Communion at 9:30 mass on September 18th. Please consider joining us so we can attend mass as a group.
I feel compelled to write a bit about the right to life with all that is going on today. With the decision by the supreme court to rightfully put the decision on this issue in the states hands. We are truly living through a life changing time. I never thought that I would see this happen. Not trying to get too political, we really need to vote our conscience this year. Our state has a law on the books that outlaws abortion and one judge decided to put this law on hold. Laws are written by our elected officials on our behalf and to have a judge stay this law is pretty ridiculous. If the law is to be changed it needs to change in the legislature, not by one judge. Judges are to interpret and apply law, not legislate. As Catholics we believe that life is precious and a gift from conception to natural death. Scientifically we know this is true because upon conception there is a unique set of DNA for this new individual. Spiritually we know this because the soul of this new individual is created. This new life is a unique individual and precious to God. This is the reason that we as Catholic Christians are so passionate about protecting life.

I hope everyone's summer is going well!
At the writing of this article, we have not yet done our Ice Cream social or camping trip...so stay tuned for a report on these events.
We were pleased to welcome our new Pastor, Father John Kiselica, who started July 1st!
At the July Meeting, I handed out MI Drive checks to be hand delivered to our chosen charities. The checks were distributed as follows:
Neil Reid High School $675
Special Olympics Michigan Area 14
ARC of Macomb County $1,825
Glen Peters Elementary School $1,325
Clinton Valley Challenger Baseball $850
Dakota High School Special Ed $500
Lutz School $725
Thank you to all who made the MI drive a success this year. We were able to help these worthy causes due to your hard work.
The council also trimmed the bushes on July 16th on the church grounds. We had quite a few Knights and a couple of parishioners. It was hard work, but boy does it look nice. Thank you to all who helped with this also. I had many compliments at Mass last Sunday.
The month of August is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart . Since the 16th century, Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue, and inner life. Such devotion is an incentive to a similar love and virtue.
This devotion has received new emphasis in this century from the visions given to Lucy Dos Santos, oldest of the visionaries of Fatima, in her convent in Tuy, in Spain, in 1925 and 1926. In the visions Our Lady asked for the practice of the Five First Saturdays to help make amends for the offenses committed against her heart by the blas- phemies and ingratitude of men. The practice parallels the devotion of the Nine First Fridays in honor of the Sa- cred Heart.
On October 31, 1942, Pope Pius XII made a solemn Act of Consecration of the Church and the whole world to the Immaculate Heart. Let us remember this devotion year- round, but particularly through the month of August.
