Tornado aid

A month after a devastating tornado hit the Perryville area on Feb. 28, Catholic Charities is settling in to provide long-term care to those affected. The tornado left one man dead and tore a 15-mile-long path of destruction costing families their homes and businesses. Mary Fulton walked through her property where once stood Fullerton Window’s and Siding, her family business. Many of the materials were lifted up and dispersed across the area.

Catholic Charities is providing long-terms help to victims of the Perryville tornado, and money is being raised by various schools.


As a bonus, here are the weekly messages from
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson and Pope Francis.

BEFORE THE CROSS

Archbishop Robert Carlson reflects on how Jesus performs signs in this week's Gospels and asks the question: 'How do these signs help us intensify our preparation for Easter in the second half of Lent?'

POPE'S MESSAGE

Pope Francis explains that Christian hope is built on patiently enduring everything life brings and knowing how to see God's presence and love everywhere.

Pope Francis knelt before a priest to confess at a Lenten prayer service March 17 in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. The pope invited all Catholics to “rediscover the sacrament of reconciliation” this Lent by taking part in the “24 Hours for the Lord” initiative March 23-24 in many dioceses worldwide.
