St. Ann, a modest white church, stands within a few yards of Highway 82 in Alapaha. On Sunday mornings the 18 wheeler traffic is sparse, and the hum of their tires ring out like soloists as they approach and depart. Those truck tires are singing a hymn of commerce as they roll past St. Ann Church (see more photographs here) every day.

On the morning of June 24, 14 youth and their adult chaperones anxiously awaited the flight that would take them to South Bend, Indiana for the Notre Dame (ND) Vision Youth Ministry Conference. The beauty of ND Vision is there are actually two conferences going on at one time. The youth ministry conference, which has a few hundred youth, places each youth in a small group with others from around the country. Within these small groups the youth are able to really connect with others, and as groups they grow together in their faith.

Every year in July, two great nations celebrate the birth of their republics. The United States of America celebrates its Declaration of Independence from Great Britain on July 4, and the French Republic celebrates the storming of the Bastille on July 14.

Angry polarization pervades too many conversations these days, from social media to cable news to family dinner tables. Catholics aren’t exempt from this, of course — in fact, sometimes we seem to revel in it.

 

Just like everyone else, we too often act like members of political factions fighting for preferred ideological agendas rather than members of a family of faith.

CHILDREN’S STORY: 

 

Jesus was good friends with Mary, Martha and Lazarus, who were siblings. He loved them very much.

 

One day, Mary and Martha sent word to Jesus that Lazarus was ill.

 

Afterward, Jesus remained in the place where he was for two more days. Then he suggested that he and the apostles return to Judea, where Mary, Martha and Lazarus lived in a village near Jerusalem.

 

“Our friend Lazarus is asleep, but I am going to awaken him,” Jesus told his friends.

Every summer, girls in grades 7-12 gather from around the Diocese of Savannah for Call to Holiness Summer Camp. This year’s camp took place June 23-26 at Georgia Primitive Baptist Camp in Claxton. In attendance were 70 campers, 20 counselors, three religious sisters, and numerous diocesan priests and seminarians. Sister Rita, Sister Celine, and Sister Sarah Elizabeth of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters traveled over 18 hours from the Immaculata Monastery & Spirituality Center in Nebraska to serve at camp.

SAVANNAH--In 2015, Prayer and Action came to Savannah as the brainchild of seminarians in the Diocese of Salinas, Kansas. 

 

Over the past four years the program’s high school participants and their college leaders have not only painted a number of homes, cleaned some yards and helped feed and clothe the needy but they have also encountered the people they’ve served as well as each other.
