‘Young at Heart’

More than 10 years ago, Andy and Karen Balzer, parishioners at St. Leo Parish in Murray, Ky., were very involved with hospitality ministry at Saturday and Sunday Masses. Through their ministry, the Balzers did more than open the door for those entering the church; they made a special effort to get to know all who entered and would have conversations with them – young and old, families and individuals.  However, they paid extra attention to older adults, as many of them had moved to Murray upon retiring.

Back to school blessings

Fr. John Okoro gave out “Backpack Blessings” at all the Tri-Parish Masses at St. Francis Borgia Parish in Sturgis, St. Ambrose Parish in Henshaw, and St. William of Vercelli in Marion on August 27 and 28 for all our school-aged children.
