March 17th, 2019 - Second Sunday of Lent

“I am the Lord who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land as a possession.”  (Genesis 15:7)

Just as the Lord gave Abraham, Moses and the Israelites a land to possess, He has also given each of us a home.  Whether your home is grand or humble, it is a gift from God. Abraham prepared a great sacrifice to the Lord in gratitude for the home God gave him.  How do you show your gratitude to God for the home He has given you? Do you make a sacrifice of any kind? Do you return any of your finances to God, investing equally in your eternal home just as you invest in your earthly home?

Traditional Marriage Rosary Rally

God's Marriage and the Traditional Family need our prayers. That is why you are invited to join our Rosary Rally for Traditional Marriage at St. Anthony's (Parking Lot) on March 23rd from 12-1pm. This Rosary Rally will be one of 1000 Rallies across the United States. It is coinciding with St. Joseph Feast Day (Protector of families). St. Louis de Montfort said: Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease God's Mercy in times of public tragedy and suffering."
The liberal media and the radical homosexual movement work hard to replace traditional marriage with same-sex "marriage". They even call these unnatural and sinful lifestyles "families". 
Sadly, many people who support traditional marriage in private fail to stand up to the advancing homosexual agenda in public. "AND WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING, EVIL ADVANCES". 
So please stand with St. Joseph and Our Lady's Rosary Warriors and join us for this Rosary Rally on March 23rd at St. Anthony's from 12-1pm. If any questions, please call Cindy Petrich at 701-552-1675.
God Will Bless You!!!!!!!
