Getting to Know Jesus Christ in a Deeper Way: Reading the Catechism in 10 Months

We grow in our love for someone as we get to know them better. Would you like to grow in your love for Jesus Christ through coming to know Him better? Reading the Catechism, a few pages each day, will help you deepen your understanding of His incredible love for you.

A modest schedule of 15 paragraphs per night (roughly 3 pages) has been arranged that will take about 10-15 minutes of reflective reading, 5 nights a week over 38 weeks. A schedule is emailed to participants every two weeks.

To sign up, email Ann Lankford at with the word Catechism in the subject line.

There are usually more than 100 people who participate each year and they express that the fruits are well worth the effort. Invite your friends to join.

Rectory Upkeep

All three parishes of St. Boniface, St. Lawrence and Immaculate Conception are responsible for the up keep of the Fountain City rectory since it is the only rectory left among the parishes. And where our priest, Father Doss, lives. Last year we made enough to replace windows and buy Father a new mattress. There are many other things that need to be done. We are rotating each year a fundraiser for the rectory repair. St. Lawrence is in the process of getting their “Rectory Fundraiser” together for this fall. Keep an eye out for more information in the upcoming weeks.
