Happy 4th of July!

Today we celebrate all the good things we have received through our Nation and its forefathers, and ask God to “bless our dear homeland.”  Every morning in our Community Intentions we pray for our Country, its leaders, and all our fellow Americans through the intercession of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, our Country’s Patroness. 

Please join us in prayers of thanksgiving and for peace for our Country!

 

A few years ago, we put up a flag pole near Saint Joseph’s statue at the front of our driveway.

 

Coming from a military family, Sister Margaret Mary grew up with reverence for our Nation’s Flag and has enjoyed passing on to the Community the proper way to care for it. 

 

We fold the Flag with respect and a prayer for our Country every time we retire it for the night.

 

Many thanks to our family and friends who have made our 4th of July celebrations so memorable over the years.  We wish you all a happy Independence Day and hope you are able to find ways to celebrate this weekend!

Please enjoy these pictures from years past:
