One of the foremost leaders in the early Church, St. Mary of Magdala led the group of women who accompanied Jesus and supported him in his ministry, was present at his death, and was the first to proclaim the good news of his Resurrection to the other disciples. Pope Francis recently decided to raise the celebration of St Mary Magdalene’s memorial to a feast day. The change re-flects her status as the ‘apostle to the Apostles’ and a witness to God’s mercy. This change emphasizes “the dignity of women, the New Evangelization, and the greatness of the mystery of Divine Mercy. The Holy Father took this decision precisely in the context of the Jubilee of Mercy to signify the importance of this woman who showed a great love for Christ and was much loved by Christ,” said Archbishop Arthur Roche, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship. There will be refreshments following the service. CATHOLIC SUMMER CAMP Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish, Branchville, in conjunction with St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, Sandyston, and St. James the Greater Parish, Montague held a Catholic Summer Camp the week of June 20. The camp was located on the grounds of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish. More than 40 children attended the program, which began each morning with a Liturgy of the Word service. The camp focused on the children having fun while deepening their faith and included skits depicting the lives of the saints along with the daily recitation of the rosary. Each morning, the children practiced singing and learning traditional Catholic hymns. The camp concluded on Friday with a Mass concelebrated by Father Wayne Varga, Father Brian Ditullio, and Father Edward Rama.

Knights Of Columbus Launch Novena For Peace In Response To U.S. Shootings

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CNA/EWTN News) In the wake of violence across the nation last week, the Knights of Columbus have issued a campaign encouraging people to join them in praying for peace.

“The violent episodes of the past week have shocked the conscience of our country,” said Carl Anderson, supreme knight.

On July 7, five Dallas police officers were killed in what authorities called a “sniper ambush” at the end of a peaceful protest against police shootings of African Americans earlier in the week.

Two days earlier, Alton Sterling, a 37- year-old black man, was shot and killed after an encounter with police in Baton Rouge, La.

“Through this prayer, each of us has the opportunity to help transcend hatred and violence by personally committing to the concepts of love of neighbor, peace and forgiveness that are central to an authentic embrace of Christianity,” he said.

“It is our hope that, from coast to coast, those who pray this prayer will become true instruments of peace.”

Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, supreme chaplain of the knights, also encouraged people to join in prayer for “an end to violence and senseless killings.”

“Through our prayers and good works, may we help build a society that is merciful, just, and peaceful.”

St. Francis of Assisi’s Prayer for Peace:

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
