Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

We remember the sacrifices made by those who put their lives on the line for us. We are grateful that many survived, and we pray for those who paid the ultimate price. May we never forget their devotion, their selflessness and the freedom they earned for us. In their honor, we remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, who paid a price He did not owe—to free us from the debt we could not pay.

Talleres de Oracion y Vida

The ministry "Talleres de Oracion y Vida"
will be offering an "Experience of God" event,

in Spanish, June 14th - 19th

Mary, Queen of peace

The Virgin Mary appeared to six children on June 24, 1981 in Medjugorje, Bosnia Herzegovina, a country dominated by atheistic communism. In the midst of a political persecution of the strong Catholic faith of a rural people suffering and depleted, the Mother of God appeared in a succession of a great number of mysti-cal events.

Mary quickly is presented under the title of the Queen of Peace. This is the central point of her message, in a world that increasingly moves away from true peace, as only Jesus can give. The petition of Mary in Medjugorje is simple and clear: prayer, fasting, confession, the Eucharist and the reading of the Your holy hour is the second Thursday of each month in the chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes, after the daily 7:00 pm mass.

For more information contact: Ana Maria Mayorga (305) 385-4437.
