“The Power of Silence”
In our society our access to silence is pretty much zero. We are constantly bombarded by noise of one kind or another. But in order to encounter the Lord Jesus we have to make room for silent prayer, so we can hear the Lord’s call above all the noise.
Join us Monday, September 30 and Tuesday, October 1st as Fr. Nick Adam discusses the “Power of Silence” with our parish. These nights will include adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction, along with a meal with one another.
Father Nick was ordained in May 2018 and is the Parochial Vicar at St. Richard. He is also the Vocation Director for the Diocese. He earned an Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Communications from the University of Alabama in 2008, and worked as a Sports Anchor and News Anchor at WTOK-TV in Meridian from 2008-2012. He joined the seminary in August of 2012 and received his Masters of Arts in Theological Studies from Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans in May 2018. He was ordained to the Priesthood on May 31, 2018, the Feast of the Visitation.

This week in RCIA we went over the Great
Commission—proclaim the Gospel to all nations
(Mt 28:19-20). God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of truth—Jesus Christ. As such we are to proclaim Christ to the world through the Gospel. The Church is commissioned to interpret and transmit God’s Word through the ages under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God invites us into a loving relationship with him to which our response is faith. By faith man completely submits his intellect and will to God.
Please pray for our inquirers Suzanne McDaniel, Caleb Clark and Wanda Jones. If you know of anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith please contact
