Stewardship Moment: “And Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ…’”- Acts 2:38 The word “repent” means to turn from sin - to change our thoughts, words and actions. Change that is permanent comes from within – a transformation or conversion of heart. This requires prayer, discipline and perseverance. Change is hard. The first step is recognizing that we are broken and that we need God’s help. The good news - we are not alone in our journey. Ask Jesus daily for guidance and patiently listen for his response.
On Sunday, May 7th St. Elizabeth's Church will be having May Crowning with a potluck dinner following our 11AM Youth Mass. We will be celebrating the Coronation of Mary and our First Communicant/Confirmant, Berett Irmen. Altar Society will be providing ham, buns, condiments, and beverages. Bring your favorite dish to share. A cake will be served for dessert. Group 3 will be serving. Come join us in a day of celebration and fellowship.
I would like to thank all the altar society members for getting spring cleaning done in a timely manner. The church looks great. Group 2 will get the outside windows done when it warms up later. Also, would like to inform everyone that we will be having a church grounds clean-up day on Wed, May 10th at 4PM. Group 3 is in charge of outdoor flowers and hedge this year so I hope they will be able to attend. And others who can help out that day will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Shelly Kurtz St. Anne's Altar Society President.

Fatima Corner: “If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace.
If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world (Communism), causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” Mary said this to the three children of Fatima.
Holy Father’s Prayer Intention for April: We pray for the spread of peace and non-violence, by decreasing the use of weapons by States and citizens.
