Ladies Night Out in March will be different from our usual schedule. We are going to see the movie, “Cabrini” in Stillwater on Sunday, March 10, at the 3:15 pm afternoon matinee. Anyone interested in attending is welcome. Tickets will be reserved by credit card so money will be collected before the movie. In order for us to get enough seats reserved at the matinee show, your RSVP is needed by March 3. Please call Fran at 580-370-6119 or Mary Louise at 580-830- 0265. Those interested in carpooling to the movie need to arrive at the church hall no later than 2:15 pm Sunday afternoon. When you RSVP, please let Fran or Mary Louise know if you plan to carpool.
The movie “Cabrini” is about Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, also called Mother Cabrini, who was an Italian-American Catholic religious sister and saint. She founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a religious institute that was a major support to her fellow Italian immigrants to the United States. She was the first U.S. citizen to be canonized a saint by the Catholic Church, on July 7, 1946. This movie is highly rated!!

From Elfrieda Wagner: Dear St. Rose of Lima Parish Family, Thank you for the Masses, prayers, cards, and texts. I really appreciate my parish family. I need all the prayers I can get. I have moved into St. Ann’s Retirement Center. They are very welcoming—the staff and residents. I am adjusting to my new home. Again, thank you so much. •
The second item on the right from the guide “What am I giving up for Lent?” says: Attend especially to the tasks you don’t like doing. Padre Pio was once visited by the soul of a young friar who had worked in the sacristy. The soul revealed that he suffered in purgatory because he’d been careless and negligent with his work. Complete every task meticulously, no matter how small and insignificant. •
