Please read both of these documents in light of our study on prayer, our mission as a community: "to promote the spiritual well being of children and youth and to provide spiritual formation and moral support for women who are called to work in a variety of apostolates dedicated to this end" (Chapter One, The Nature of the Apostolate), and our participation in both the WAY retreat for scouts and the Pope's Year of Faith for the Church.

August 15th-Feast of the Assumption-a holy day of obligation. No meeting tonight so our members can facilitate a reverent observance of this marvelous feast within their families.
