American Legion Post 14: Thank you to all members who have already renewed for 2014. Please remember that in November, we'll have an early bird dinner at no cost to you. Legion family members are encouraged to renew early to save resources that can be used for other Legion programs. For Legionnaires, renewing online is easy: go to www.legion.org and click on "Renew" at the top of the page; print your receipt for use until our adjutant can get your card mailed to you. While you're there, you can also click on MyLegion and update your personal information, like branch of service and war era. Also, speaking of saving resources, if you move, please give us your new address. We spend more than we should in recovering new addresses from the post office. We haven't moved - we're still on the corner of Oak and Third in old town Kingman, and we're still open from noon to 6 p.m. every day. Call us at (928) 753-3555.
Belles of St. Mary's: The 2013 Annual Church Picnic once again shone the spotlight of appreciation and pride on the St. Mary's altar servers for the fourth year in a row! Boys and girls alike, ranging in ages from 10 to 26, they paraded before their fellow Catholics and received two movie tickets, a $20 gift certificate from St. Vincent's and a special recognition certificate given by the newly organized Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Society. The movie tickets were sponsored by the Belles of St. Mary's, the Knights of Columbus, Humberto's Masonry, Campbell and Parker Heating and Cooling, and Retro Plumbing. Good job, guys 'n gals! These young altar servers serve in a supporting role in the celebration of our Mass by: carrying the processional cross and candles; carrying the incense and thurible; holding the missal for the priest celebrant when needed; assisting the priest as he receives the gifts from the people; assisting the priest's washing of hands before the prayers over the gifts; removing sacred vessels from the altar as the priest cleans them; and leading the congregation in prayer and song. Several of our Belles have truly served our Lord by offering up their children in service to Him. Today we stop to remember the passion of John the Baptist, forerunner of Christ, martyred by King Herod and celebrated since the Fifth Century. Again we stress the rich heritage of our church strewn with martyrdoms, persecutions to this day, heroism beyond Hollywood's phony depictions and acts of love and unselfishness that humble even the most hardened hearts. And at the very core of all this history is the indisputable loved of our Christ. Finally, summer is over, children are off to school and the Belles hear the call to arms! We meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 10 in the Parish Center. See you there!

The Feast of Tabernacles is one of "God's Feasts," and all his children, both Jews and Christians, are entitled to celebrate with Him. As Christians, we may not commemorate this holiday in the traditional biblical sense, but by understanding its significance we will gain a greater knowledge of God's Word, improve our understanding of the Bible and gain a deeper relationship with the Lord.
