"Therese, The Story of a Soul"
March 4
 
Thérèse: The Story of a Soul, the moving, live production performed by actress Audrey Ahern and directed by Patti Defilippis of Saint Luke Productions, will be presented at Mary Immaculate Church in Farmers Branch on Friday, March 4 at 7:00 p.m.

 

In this one-woman performance, Thérèse speaks directly to you, the audience, with humor, grace and humility. Her honest, direct spirituality speaks powerfully to our busy culture, with the encouraging message that anyone can become a saint. The program is filled with all the elements of professional theater, runs 75 minutes, and is suitable for all ages. 

 

Admission is a free-will offering. For additional information, contact Rita Ford, Family Life Coordinator at Mary Immaculate at 972-243-7140 ext. 26 or ritaf@maryimmaculatechurch.org or visit www.MaryImmaculateChurch.org.

A Stewardship Prayer

Our Blessed Lord!

Our Risen Savior!

 

We give you thanks

For the awe-inspiring gift of Easter

And the redemption we enjoy

As a result of your gift.

 

We give you thanks for calling us

your friends

and allowing us to share your body

and blood

in the holy Eucharist.

 

Oh merciful Lord,

Redeemer and Teacher,

by the power of the Holy Spirit

give us the skills to listen to you

more closely;

the wisdom to put

the Eucharist into action;

and the courage to bring

your Easter message of hope

to a world that desperately needs

your love

 

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.  Amen

FAMILY LIFE

You can keep your kids Catholic.
Here’s how….”

 

An interview with Catholic author and father of 11 kids – Patrick Madrid



Journey of Hope

 

In his book, “On Heaven and Earth”, Pope Francis is quoted stating that Divorced, Separated and Remarried Catholics should, "integrate into the parish life". If you look around, you will find that most Divorced, Remarried and Separated are not sitting in our pews. This is because many times the topic of Divorce makes us feel uncomfortable. We tend to shy away from asking or getting involved. Christ calls us to Charity for the poor and the needy. Our Divorced and Separated brothers and sisters are in need. Some are poor in spirit. As soldiers for Christ, we are called to evangelize by being inviting and attentive to those in need.

If you are separated or divorced, or know of a Catholic that has fallen away due to their Divorce or Separation, the road to healing is available through our Journey of Hope program here at Mary Immaculate!

Those seeking healing are invited to take the first step by attending our weekly meetings on Sundays, 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Parish Conference room.

For more information contact Alma at almasanchez2@yahoo.com or Rita at ritaf@maryimmaculatechurch.org

Saying I Do…
What Happens at a
Catholic Wedding
 
Are you recently engaged, planning a wedding or thinking about the Sacrament of Marriage? A great video for couples, families and anyone considering marriage in the Catholic Church, “Saying I do…What happens at a Catholic Wedding”, is available for viewing online.

This video walks you through the Rite of Marriage, whether you’re marrying another Catholic, a baptized person who is not Catholic, or someone who is not baptized. It also answers several FAQs about Catholic weddings.

For more information contact Rita Ford at 972-243-7104 Ext. 26 or ritaf@maryimmaculatechurch.org
