The violence in our country is of significant concern to all Americans. The following words are from Archbishop Carlson:
"Our nation is in considerable pain as we continue to witness the toll of violence and intolerance on the people of God. On too many mornings over the past several weeks, we have awakened to fresh tragedy and
renewed horror....Already, dangerously irresponsible voices are calling for more hate and violent retribution,
adding darkness upon darkness. We stand with the Church, all Christians, members of all faiths, and people of good will in calling for love, peace,
justice and reconciliation. Following the example of Christ, we offer prayers to the all of the families and communities touched by this violence as
well as for those responsible for visiting death upon them. Only in the total and unyielding love of God can true and lasting peace be found. God
does not count the deaths and suffering of His children differently. He weeps for them all, and so do we....I ask you to join me in prayer for our
communities, around our country and here at home."
There are a few weeks of summer left; RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) begins in September. Remember to think of someone to invite to
become Catholic. The RCIA weekly sessions of instruction and faith formation are open to those considering joining
the Church. If you or someone you know is alikely candidate, give me or Sr. Diane a call. Immacolata Parish has been blessed over the years in receiving
new members into the Catholic Church. Help further the Church’s mission of evangelization: bringing people together in Jesus Christ.
