A Catholic kneels or stands before a statue to pray, this doesn’t mean he’s praying to the statue.
A person may kneel with a Bible in his hand, but no one thinks he’s praying to a book. Statues and other images are used to recall to the mind the person or thing depicted. Just as it’s easier to remember one’s family by looking at a photograph, so it’s easier to remember the lives of the saints (and thus be edified by them) by looking at representations of the saints.
The Lord commanded the Ark, which held the tablets of the Law, to be topped with statues of two cherubim. The statues were to be made of gold, and the wings of the cherubim were to be held over the Ark, as though protecting it, Exocus 25.
Every 2nd and 4th Saturday, Noon to 2:00 pm.
See Helping Hands Ministry for further information.

Bricks to beautify our landscaping and to create memories
The Knights of Columbus are offering you the opportunity to add a brick to one of four locations within our new landscaping. The bricks can be printed with your name, the name of a loved one (living or deceased), with an event you want commemorated, or with an inspirational message of your choice.
The bricks will beautify four locations within our grounds:
- Under the St. Joseph statue located in the alcove to the right of the main church doors
- Under the American Flag located on the south end of the church/school building
- In the walking path through Mary's Prayer Garden (visible through the bank of windows in the sanctuary)
- In the wall that will border the Prayer Garden
For more information, or to order your brick, ...
Starting in the Fall
Are you someone or do you know someone who ...has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic? ...was baptized Catholic but has not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation and Eucharist?
We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. This process is called RCIA. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season.
For information please contact: Deacon Larry Loumena at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-405-5708.
