Belles of St. Mary's: Tomorrow (Friday) we celebrate the feast that has inspired all the various images of the Sacred Heart. It is a feast of unfathomable love. We are told that the reason Jesus' heart was outside His body was because He gave this heart to us. And the crown of thorns surrounding His heart reminds us that the love Jesus gave us cost Him great sacrifice and suffering, even death. Pop quiz: The FCCW will soon celebrate its first anniversary. You all remember what this acronym represents, yes? These classes will be starting up in the near future - Angie V. will keep us apprised. Our annual church picnic is a mere five weeks away! The committees are meeting bi-monthly and are eagerly waiting to welcome YOU. Call the parish with questions and offers. In the meantime, gather up your dollars and coins for the many treasures to be offered for sale, and that includes the many tickets that will be offered for absolutely great prizes! Music, games, prizes, treasures and great food - and in the cool Hualapai Mountains to boot - talk about a winning combination! Sunday will feature a holy dynamic duo - Saints Peter and Paul - Peter, the "rock" on which our church was built, chosen by Jesus in person, and Paul, who once persecuted Christians and became a forever famous preacher and gave us great writings concerning our church beliefs. Truly, we are blessed with such a rich heritage. Don't forget - tickets, tickets, tickets!
