"Have you broadened your faith life yet by listening to Catholic Radio? It has been said, Catholic Radio is a bright light in a culture becoming more dark. An Age is called Dark , not because the lights fail to shine but because people fail to see it. If you are Sunday Catholic , Catholic Radio will feed your spiritual hunger and lead you into a life of more meaning. Fulton Sheen, the most famous Catholic media personality ever, said," God doesn't love us because we are valuable; we are valuable because God loves us." Catholic Radio will give God and your faith more meaning in your life. Tune in to AM1090 or by internet at www.catholicradionetwork.com.


Make Holy Family Your Home

Have you or someone you know been away from church for a while? Have you thought about joining the Catholic Church? RCIA Inquiry Classes for Adults wanting to join the Catholic Church are available at our parish. This first part of the RCIA process doesn't require any commitment; it's merely a time to come and learn what the Catholic Church is about and have your questions answered. If you are a practicing Catholic and would like to sit in on the classes, you are welcome to come join us as well.  Classes are every Monday evening at 6 pm in the upper parish hall.  Please call the parish office at 785-542-2788 with questions.


Pray about asking a family member that has left the church; maybe there's someone you know who's looking for something good to rely on in this mixed up world today. Sometimes all it takes is to ask them and plant that seed...
