of the Month
The Protect Adoption Choice Act guarantees that faith-based adoption providers remain free to serve children and families as they have in Kansas for over 60 years. Religiously motivated adoption agencies specialize in hard-to-place cases. The children they serve would be punished if these organizations were ever forced to close as has happened in other states. This flyer (see link) illustrates the importance of gathering as much support as possible for the hearings.
It is difficult to overstate the importance and influence of having as many supporters of our faith-based adoption agencies present at these hearings. Those who oppose the legislation will be well represented and it is crucial that our Legislators know their courageous defense of our Religious Freedom and charitable organizations is well supported by their constituents.
We are asking that any parishioners who feel strongly about this issue, especially those who have experienced the blessing and miracle of adoption in their own lives, attend the hearings on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.
Hearings for the Protect Adoption Choice Act on TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2018, at the Kansas Capitol Building. Children are very welcome.

PENITENTIAL DISCIPLINES OF LENT:
The Christian faithful, during Lent, are clearly conscious of the need to turn the mind towards those realities which really count, which require Gospel commitment and integrity of life which, through self denial of those things which are superfluous, are translated into good works and solidarity with the poor and needy. (Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, #125)
In addition to choosing their own penitential practices, Catholics are also asked to observe the practices of fast and abstinence during the 40 days of Lent. The Lenten Fast and Abstinence Regulations are as follows:

MPHM has asked HTK Architects to help guide us through a Master Planning Process. We will be evaluating all of our facilities and the parish grounds as well as asking parishioners and parish employees for input. We have had one town hall meeting and are in the process of talking to parishioners through already scheduled meetings and events. A survey is being developed that we will get out to parishioners through the bulletin and FlockNote.
Thanks to a kind sponsor, we are able to offer
our parishioners and guests (please feel free to share this link with family and friends)

As the parish concentrates on the financial matters of the parish, Fr. Greg would like all parishioners to pray the novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots. As we take these matters to prayer, we firmly believe that we will be guided to the solutions needed to keep Most Pure Heart of Mary financially viable for many generations.
