The Diocese of Savannah’s Cemetery Preservation Society, still existing today, owes its origin to the efforts of then-archivist Gillian Brown, retired surgeon Frank Rizza, and others inspired to do something for it. Opened by first bishop, Francis X. Gartland when Catholics couldn’t obtain a separate burial section at Laurel Grove Cemetery, the cemetery is sanctified not only by graves of two bishops but also by those of countless priests and sisters who labored in the diocese.

CHILDREN’S STORY:

Great crowds followed Jesus wherever he went. People loved to hear him preach.

 

One day, he left the crowds and went up a mountain. He gathered his apostles around him and began to teach.

 

Jesus talked about many things. He said that being angry with another person is sinful. He assured those who were having hard lives on earth that they would find rest and peace in heaven. He even taught the people that they should love and pray for their enemies instead of hating them.

Unlike Christmas, Easter and every Sunday of the year, Ash Wednesday is not a holy day of obligation. Maybe that’s part of the draw for some people, who fill their parish churches for Ash Wednesday liturgies as they rarely do at any other time.

 

“Yes, we get big turnouts for Ash Wednesday,” says Father Dan Rupp, pastor of Mater Dei Church in Sioux City, Iowa. “It seems like many of these folks are people who also come for the blessing of the throats, or anytime there is something different going on than at most Sunday liturgies.”

COLUMBUS--Catholic schools are committed to the spiritual, intellectual and physical development of the students entrusted to them. Often, teachers encourage learners to seek information in the form of asking questions. Students at St. Anne-Pacelli in Columbus were asked to ponder what question they would ask the bishop if given the chance. Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. then answered their submitted questions on stage in front of a crowd of around 430 supporters of Catholic education at the Deimel Ball on January 27.

What a wonderful sight to behold: From Capitol Hill as far as I could see, there was a sea of people on the march for life!

 

But the recent 45th March for Life was bittersweet. 

 

It was inspiring to see so many people, from so many states, marching on behalf of our unborn brothers’ and sisters’ right to be born. But it was sad to think that we have been marching for 45 years – with no end in sight.
