"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

Please Consider Helping the Boys Out...

Davis, Chris and Ben are working hard to raise funds for their Rookie Season of FIRST Tech Challenge! 

FIRST Tech Challenge is a high school robotics competition where  teams design, build, and program their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. 

Please help them out by ordering your favorite or much needed products through their Pampered Chef fundraiser.

They will receive 10% of the total up to $699 and 15% with $700 and above in orders... PLUS as an added incentive, their consultant will match that with another 5%, and 7% respectively.

PLEASE invite your friends and family! The more people that order, the more they earn!  And please pass this email along!

Thank you!!!

God our Father, giver of LIFE
We entrust the United States of America to your loving care
You are the rock on which this nation was founded
You alone, are the true source of its cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Reclaim this land for your glory
and dwell among your people
Send you spirit to touch the hearts of our nation's leaders
Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom
Remind your people that true happiness
is rooted in seeking and doing your will
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land
Grant us the courage to reject the culture of death
And lead us in to a new millennium of life
We ask this through Christ, our Lord
