ABORTION: “One day…our nation will…look back on what we have been doing to innocent human beings within their mothers as a crime no less heinous that what was approved by the Supreme Court in the ‘Dred Scott case’ in the 19th century, and no less heinous than what was perpetrated by Hitler and Stalin in the 20th.”  Cardinal Edward Egan in Catholic New York,  October 23, 2008.
Suggested prayer: For a greater commitment to the defense of innocent human life, we pray.

MISSION AWARENESS WEEKEND: Next weekend is our annual mission appeal for the work of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  Deacon David Jordan, representing the Office of Global Concerns, will share with us on how we can help others to witness to the Gospel through our prayer and financial support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  Please be generous in helping others to have the Gospel preached and Eucharist celebrated.

ST JOSEPH MEAL SODALITY BEING FORMED: A group of parishioners, with Fr. Poggemeyer’s support and enthusiasm, is forming a sodality whose purpose will be to provide meals for those who are suffering from illness, bereavement, or who have just had a new baby.  If you are interested in joining our effort in this much needed parish endeavor, please join us on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 7:00p.m. at Panera Bread on Central Avenue.  We will be discussing a name for the Sodality and how to organize the “how to’s”.  Bring your ideas and organizational experience with you…the more, the better!  For more information, please contact Kathy Williams at 419-877-0392 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!  TWO YOUNG MEN’S RETREATS are being organized and directed by Fr. Adam Hertzfeld and Toledo seminarians.  The retreats are for the purpose of helping young men to get away to get some solid prayer and spiritual talks.  They are not necessarily for men who think they will be priests, but rather have the goal of helping young men draw closer to Jesus and grow in their desire to follow Him, wherever it is that He leads them vocationally.  The retreats will include mass and confessions, as well as plenty of food and some sports.  Some logistics still have to be worked out, especially the places solidified.  The retreat for young men in grades 6-8 will be July 10th-12th (Friday evening through Sunday morning).  The retreat for men in grades 10-12 will be June 26th-28th.

HEARTBEAT OF TOLEDO a pro-life pregnancy center, is once again sponsoring its “Change for Changing Lives of Mothers and Babies” baby bottle campaign.  Please start gathering that loose change from home and car, relatives and friends, and pick up a baby bottle after Mass on the weekend of March 14th and 15th.
