Month of the Rosary

Posted on May 03, 2019 in: General News

As we celebrate the month of May, we are reminded of the devotion of the Holy Rosary. You are invited and encouraged to pray the Rosary at home with your family. The Rosary, especially when prayed well, has many spiritual benefits. The Rosary is also offered 30 minutes before the weekend Masses in the church. When praying the Rosary together, please pray the prayers in unison with others. This contributes to the sense of "unity" which should be part of our communal prayer.

Ugly Quilts

Posted on April 05, 2019 in: General News

“Ugly Quilts” is an ongoing project to make sleeping bags for the homeless. The group meets every Wednesday at 8-11 am all year at the St. Vincent de Paul Center in Cape. The Women of St. Francis Xavier are helping with this project in order to supply our local Warming Center in Sikeston (which has used more than 40 this year). They go to Cape the first Wednesday of the month and will meet at our Rectory on the third Wednesday of each month from 9-12 noon to tie these quilts. For more information or to volunteer either of these times, call Sharon at 472-0517 or email chou1943@att.net.
