1ST Ave S,
Buchanan 5th Sunday of Easter
The church invites you to make your prayer scriptural.
A good way to begin would be to use each week’s Sunday Psalm
Response at regular daily intervals. This week it is:
“I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.”
Mother’s Day is less a blessed day for mothers and far more a blessed day for children to remember them, think about them, thank them and thank God for them. Happy Mother’s Day!
KC Breakfast will be held this Sunday, May 14, 2006 serving after the 8:30am & 10:30am Eucharists at the KC Hall. High School Graduates and Mothers will be guests of the KC’s.

Thank You…Sincere thanks to all of you involved
with the Tabernacle Spring Rummage Sale. We especially thank those who donated
clothing and other items and those of you who came and shopped. We most
appreciated the parishioners, Tabernacle ladies, cashiers, markers and those
who assisted with the pack-up and clean-up after the sale. Thank you, too for
the use of pickups for hauling away the leftovers. It was most gratifying to
see so many people helping. I think Fr. Bitz would call this community. Please
know that all of you helped make this a very successful event. We also thank
Bjor Ringdahl of the Jamestown Ambulance Service for allowing us to store
leftovers at the old

Isidore understood clearly that, without
soil, the human race could not exist. This insight may explain why he always
had such a reverent attitude toward his work as a farmer. During his lifetime, Isidore had the gift of miracles, and more than once he fed
