Dear parishioners,
I hope you have had a blessed week! Sometimes I find myself wondering just where the time has gone. So much to do, seemingly all the time in the world to accomplish these tasks and yet I always find the tasks don't get done and the time goes by even faster!  As we begin the 22nd week in this season of ordinary time The Lord Jesus reminds us of the demands of our calling as His followers. Deny ourselves, take up the cross and follow Him. That's what He expects of us. Some today suggest that He really does expect anything, He has taken care of everything for us and so we don't need to heed these words. But Jesus Himself tells that to lose ourselves we will find ourselves in Him, we will live. I don't suggest that we should put on sackcloth and sit in ashes, but we are called to a different life, a life where our joy comes from doing just what that. How much time do we waste!  How much time do we devote to prayer, acts of kindness, moments of sharing what we have with those around us. Yes that is what denying ourselves means, then life becomes so much more than we can possibly imagine. God grant us the courage to walk as Christ Jesus.
    We are in need of servers for Mass, cantors and people who like to sing, those who play instruments of various kinds and proclaimers of the Scriptures. Prayerfully consider offering your time and talents for the glory and praise of God. Call the office to enlist in the service of The Lord.
  
I have included a copy of a statement from the Bishops of Indiana concerning the activities of our elected officials in regards to religious freedoms. The implications of these actions are far reaching and open the door for even less freedom of conscience in matters of one's religious faith.
  May your days ahead be full of the things that truly matter. Keep up the 'good' work.
Fr. Tully

"You saw how the Lord, your God carried you, as a parent carries his child, all along your journey until you arrived at this place"  Deuteronomy 1,31

Welcome To St. Michael & St. Francis Catholic Parishes In Northern Clark County!

For a 150 years the people of St. Michael & St Francis have celebrated the presence of God in the towns and rural community of norther Clark County.  We are a pilgrim people guided by the proclamation of the Scriptures and strengthend by the grace of God in the Eucharist. We welcome new members through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.  We seek reconciliation with all through the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  We ask God's blessings upon those who commit themselves in the Sacrament of Marriage.  We celebrate God's presence in both Word and Sacrament.

Jesus taught us a message of forgiveness.  And so, we seek an openess to the grace of reconciliation.  Part of the "Good News" is that we don't have to burden ourselves with hatred and resentment.  Through the Spirit of the Risen Jesus it is possible to move beyond bitterness and exclusion of others.  With the grace of the Holy Spirit we can find God's presence in every human being.

An authentic spiritual journey is more than just prayer.  It also includes action.  As Jesus chose to be a servant of all, we seek to serve our community.  Through programs of outreach and participation in community activities we try to give credibility to our faith.  We are not yet Saints in heaven.  We are sinners seeking the grace and guidance of God. 

We hope that this webiste will be an aid to all the people of our community.  May it be an aid to your own journey of faith.
