Several years ago I had the opportunity to visit Philadelphia, PA, and the historic sites that are so interwoven with the course towards independence that shaped the future of the United States of America.
The month of November is approaching fast. As is the custom of the Missionary Benedictines of Christ the King Priory in Schuyler, NE, we will again celebrate the daily Eucharist in November for the deceased benefactors and friends, and in particular, for your loved ones whom God has called from this life. May they rest in HIS peace and intercede for you at the throne of God.
To live charitably means not looking out for your own interests, but carrying the burdens of the weakest and poorest around us. Pope Francis – November 2013
On several social media sites this quote of Pope Francis was circulated and it caught my attention especially with the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda in mind which caused so much devastation in the Philippines. People of good will from all over the world, including governments, responded with emergency aid.
Thank you for visiting the webpages of Christ the King Priory. We hope that you found the information helpful.
LENTEN APPEAL 2014
St. Benedict, the “Father of Western Monasticism” invites his followers to mark the Lenten Season with good deeds and sacrifices but also to look forward with joy to holy Easter. It is in this spirit that I invite you to join forces with us in bringing God’s love to the people of the Diocese of Pemba in Mozambique where we Missionary Benedictines have been asked to assist with “re-planting” the faith.
As monks we are committed to be faithful stewards of the funds we receive in support of our ministries and projects. 100% of every donation for a specific purpose (appeal) is assigned accordingly. No donated money is used to pay consultants, advertising, salaries, administrative expenses or postage. We monks do not receive a salary. All expenses are covered in full by the resources of the monastery and not withdrawn from any donations received.
It is our policy that each donation is acknowledged with a personal message. In addition, a Thank You letter is sent from the mission benefitting from the appeal donation.
