1. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. 
                 Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
2. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the
                 whole staircase.”
3. “Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.”
4. “Our lives begin and end the day we become silent '

                  about things that matter.”
5. “We may have come on different ships,

                  but we are in the same boat now. “
6. “The ultimate measure of a man...is where he stands
                  at times of challenge and controversy.”
7. “To be a Christian without prayer is like trying

                 to be alive without breathing.”
In the memory of Dr. King, read his speeches, and watch him
deliver his sermons.

In his exhortation, "Joys of Love", Pope Francis urges all parents to talk to their children about sexuality and sexual relations, because if they don't, the children will never learn to be mature about the sacredness of love, sex and commitment.  Don't let your children think that the real meaning of sexual relationships can be found on the internet or in the movies. God bless all parents with wisdom and strength!

We are honored to present

the statue entitled,

"Mary, Queen of Africa".

 This statue was sculpted by a retired missionary, Rev. Leonard Carrieri, M.SS.CC.
