FAMILY PRAYER FOR LIFE!

 

Recently, Ireland and Argentina approved the legalization of abortion. Earlier in June, South Korea held a March for Life  to rally against their own country’s abortion laws. It’s time for all families to take the advice of venerable Fr. Patrick Peyton, an Irish priest (1909-1992) who led Rosary Rallies around the world: “The family that prays together, stays together”. Daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration and  praying the Rosary were all part of his daily spiritual routine. Each of these offer a sense of relief and consolation in the struggles of family life and are a source of God’s grace, mercy and unending support. All are spiritual glue for keeping the family together, no matter what struggles or trials come.

….

Our Saints Peter and Paul ROSARY MAKERS have placed baskets of Rosary Chaplets that are especially dedicated to praying for those suffering from the effects of addiction in the back of church. Please feel free to take one of these Rosaries. Among the prayers for the Chaplet is this beautiful one:

God of mercy, we praise You in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who came to Him.

Enfold (name) in your mercy and love, for the restoration of freedom which only You can provide. Strengthen (name) in the work of recovery through the ability to resist temptation. Grant patience, understanding, and love that perseveres, to all who care for those with addiction. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

……

A reminder that there will be no High School or Middle School ministry this week. If you would like to stay up to date on all upcoming summer events, please be sure to follow us on social media!

I would like to thank all students and parents for another truly amazing year of Youth Ministry here at Saints Peter and Paul. 

 

During the summer, we do not meet on our regularly scheduled Tuesday and Sundays but we are planning some great activities during the summer months. There are many ways to stay in contact and up to date with all things Youth Ministry. First, please be sure to send an email so that you can be added to our list. Also, please follow us on social media for quick updates.

HOW TO DISPOSE OF EXPIRED MEDICINES?

A local disposal box for expired prescriptions or other medications you may no longer need has been placed in the lobby of the Brighton Twp. and Beaver Police Departments providing a safe and proper means for  their disposal. This collection box is being provided by the Beaver Co. District Attorney’s Office as unused medications are often subject to abuse or accidental poisoning and overdoses.

 

Medications should remain in their original containers. Personal information on the labels should be crossed out, but information about the medication itself should be legible. Gather up those prescription medications, prescription patches, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, medication samples and medications for pets and drop them off for a safe disposal. Open containers of liquids should be completely sealed. (At this time, NO needles, aerosol cans or inhalers are being accepted.)

Before the meeting, the Rosary is prayed at 6:30 pm in the church and then Mass is celebrated at 7 pm.
