Blood Drive Results

Thank you for the SBCC blood drive yesterday.

We registered 12 people and collected 12 units.  I think there was a lot going on which may have taken away from the blood drive – as well as nice weather after a week of rain!

The next drive is August 30th

Identity is a theme to which Pope Francis has returned often in his daily preaching. He speaks of Catholics, metaphorically, as having a certain “identity card,” as valuable and consequential as a passport or a driver’s license. Our legal documents record important details such as our eye color, hair color, and home address. These details matter to us, but they are superficial; they can change over time. Pope Francis, however, speaking from the Catholic tradition, is more concerned, as we are in this letter, about an identity that is essential, enduring, and true. We must talk about the identity we receive in baptism. It cannot be taken away from us. It is permanent. Indeed, it is all we can hope to keep at the end of our earthly life.
