As explicitly formulated, the precept “You shall not kill” is strongly negative: it indicates the extreme limit which can never be exceeded. Implicitly, however, it encourages a positive attitude of absolute
respect for life; it leads to the promotion of life and to progress along the way of a love which gives, receives and serves. -- St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, no. 54
We will be meeting on Tuesday, August 22nd at 7:00 pm in the Conference Room. This was a last minute change from last week. If you have
questions, or would like additional information, please contact Anita Geigley at
