Operating as usual

To a woman facing an unexpected pregnancy in difficult circumstances, adoption is sometimes felt to be worse than aborting her child. In reality, placing a child for adoption is a loving, generous, and sacrificial option that demonstrates a woman’s profound, long-term motherly care. In considering and choosing whether to place her child for adoption, a mother seeks what is best for her child, making a selfless act of love. Still, a woman considering adoption may experience a number of conflicting emotions. It is essential that she be supported throughout and after the process, whether she decides to place her child with another loving family or to raise her child herself.

By grace, we are made children of God through adoption and can call him, “Abba, Father!” (Rom. 8:15). This spiritual adoption also makes us brothers and sisters in the Lord. In this month that we celebrate all the saints, let us call on the intercession of our brothers and sisters in heaven. Through our united prayers, may expectant mothers making an adoption plan receive support and care of the Christian community as they make a loving choice for their child.

[09/11/20]   Love the new photo about being the Beacon.

[06/19/20]   All people are created by God with equal moral value!

Instead of looking for revenge David cried out to God for justice. He prayed instead of retaliating. So many times we try to fight people or battles and we make it worse when God simply says “Be still and know that he is God!”

David truly understands that God is the ultimate Judge. We understand that God sees everything and there’s nothing hidden from God. God sees the heart of man, and our motives and thoughts are an open book to him.

When we hold our peace and allow God to fight the battle that rages against us, evil will eventually destroy itself. But sometimes in the cross fire we do get hurt. And sometimes we don’t understand why, but could those battle scars be reminders to us that we overcame the battle? We may have been crushed, been broken and been knocked down but we are still standing strong. God will make us victorious!

Please pray for peace! God bless is all!

During this and all times of difficulty and anxiety, we pray that Our Lady will draw pregnant mothers close to her heart and, through her intercession, bring comfort, encouragement, and joyful hope. In bravely living out their vocation, mothers reflect the sacrificial love of Christ on a daily basis. With the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Life as our guide, may we work to support all mothers, especially those who are most in need.

[01/23/20]   Heavenly Father, thank you
for the precious gift of life.
Help us to cherish and protect
this gift, even in the midst of
fear, pain, and suffering.
Give us love for all people,
especially the most vulnerable, and help us bear witness to the truth that every life is worth living.

Grant us the humility to accept help
when we are in need,
and teach us to be merciful to all.
Through our words and actions, may others encounter the outstretched hands of Your mercy.
We ask this through
Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Olathe Public Schools has 463 Homeless Students / Families in Transition in 2019. For the past several years, the district has hosted the ‘Olathe Back to School Outreach’ which provides homeless students with backpacks filled with school supplies, health & dental care and other items to help these students start school prepared. A key goal of the Outreach is to provide each student with a $25 gift card to allow them to purchase a new outfit for the beginning of school. The weekend of July 20/21 we will be accepting cash donations and/or gift cards from Wal-Mart, Target or Kohls. Gift cards can be purchased through Script so that our Parish will benefit as well. The resources will be distributed at the August 3rd Back to School Outreach. Our goal is to purchase at least 100 ($25) gift cards.
Can you help us reach our goal by making a donation?
