  • APRIL 2, 2017 • FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT 3

    Scrutinies: This weekend we celebrate the 3rd Scrutiny with those preparing for full communion with the Catholic Church. These Scrutinies are meant to uncover then heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the hearts of the elect. The scrutinies are celebrated in order to deliver the elect from the power of sin and Satan, to protect them against tempta- tion, and to give them strength in Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life. So continue to pray for the elect as they continue their journey to the Easter waters and sacraments. These include our Catechumen (unbaptized): Judi Ander- son, Tatiana Behn, Shaina Buckner, Colleen Gallardo, Becky Jones and Candidate (baptized): Zachary Gallar- do.

    Sympathy: As a parish let us pray for our parishioner, Clara Sue Downs. Clare’s sister, Beulah Norris Gilles Herrell passed away on Monday, March 13th at the age of 85 at the Hermitage Care and Rehab Center in Owensboro. She retired from Kentucky Electronics and also worked at Foodland for 10 years. She was a member of Precious Blood Catholic Church, AmVets and a lifetime member of the American Legion. Her joys included playing cards, bin-

    go and watching UK basketball. She was preceded in death by her first husband, John Henry Giles in 1974 and her second husband, Charles W. Herrell in 2015. Surviving are her children – 3 daughters and 3 sons and 1 stepson, 10 grandchildren, 8 great- grandchildren; 2 sisters; 1 stepbrother

    and 1 stepsister. Her funeral was held on Friday, March 17th at Precious Blood Catholic Church with burial at Rosehill Cemetery in Owensboro. In addition Clara Sue’s brother, Charles Dan Thompson passed away on Saturday, March 4th in Owens- boro at the age of 84. Dan was a lifelong farmer and a member and founder of Daviess County Pork Producers. He was a devoted Catholic and a member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Owensboro. He was preceded in death by his wife, son and grandson. Survivors include his 2 daughters, 5 sons, 15 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren 1 brother and 4 sisters. His Funeral Mass was held on Saturday, March 11th at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church with burial in the church cemetery.

    As a parish, let us keep Clare Sue’s family in our prayers this week as they mourn their loss and may we as a church pray: “May their soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.”

    Thank You Card: We received a “Thank You” card we wanted to share with you. We the family of Elizabeth Jones are gratefully acknowledg- ing
