Being Pro-Community

Community Activities

Wherever we live, whether New York or British Columbia, we all have our own perceptions of “community.”

Usually, these perceptions are formed by the concrete reality of the world immediately around us. It may be a bustling metropolis, a town, a tiny village, a large county, a broad rural area.

It is the place we call home – with all its good and bad features, its beauty and ugliness, its strengths and weaknesses. Every individual has a voice in shaping the world around him, and every individual can make that voice heard.

Make your voice heard in your community.

Do more than throw up your hands in despair over what’s wrong with the world.

Your community offers limitless opportunity for action that can be seen, felt and judged for its true worth.

Look for something that’s needed and workable in your community – fight poverty, aid individuals with intellectual disabilities, plant a tree, sponsor a blood pressure screening, support law enforcement, campaign for every baby’s right to life, help the aged – whatever your community’s needs, your members’ interests and your council’s resources allow.

No matter what you choose … get involved!

Prayer for Religious Liberty

 Sent Earlier this month:

Prayer for Religious Liberty

Almighty God, Father of all nations, for freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus. We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, the foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good.


Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties; By your grace may we have the courage to defend them, for ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land.


We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with whom you live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
