For Reflection:

Am I as persistent in prayer as I am in pursuing other goals?  Does God's apparent lack of response invite me to greater trust and perseverance rather than to question his goodness?                                                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Thank you to everyone who attended the Blessing of the New Parish Hall and Celebration of the 160th Anniversary of the founding of St. Benedict Church. More History-->   For info about renting the Hall, contact Parish Office 573-351-1107.

St. Benedict's Poor Box

Thank you to all who support the poor box!  100 percent of current donations to the poor box are given to a local charity, Ripley County Backpacks for Friday Program, which works in cooperation with the SEMO Food Bank and local schools to send home each weekend a backpack filled with non-perishable snacks and other foods for students in need and their families.  A donation of $350 feeds a family of four during an entire school year.  Even a few dollars could make a difference in the life of a hungry child!  In 2019, we have sponsored 2 families!  Thank you!!

                                                                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
