Shedding Light on Humanae Vitae
Please join us for an evening of insights and answers about the history and continuing relevance of this controversial yet crucial encyclical. Our expert speaker will present information and answer questions about Catholic teaching on the sacredness of human life, the practice of contraception which is in conflict with these values and on how we are called to live as Catholics in the world today.

The United With Migrants organization endeavors to obtain the necessary funds to provide food, clothing, and other necessities for the migrant families of the Brighton farms area.
This is achieved byway of grants and various fund raiser events. Information on our next fund raiser event will be posted shortly. Our monthly meetings alternate between LOTW and Spirit of Christ Church at 80th & Wadsworth Blvd., and convene at 7 PM on the third Thursday.
All who share our concern for the welfare of the migrants are strongly encouraged to participate.
