CPR, AED and Choking Information Session

AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
Choking Emergencies
 
Save the Date!
Monday, September 24
                                 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Cathedral of the Sacred Heart
Gathering Space

CPR, when performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival. If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you care about. The truth is, when you see someone collapse, it only takes two steps to save a life.
Ushers and greeters are especially encouraged to come, but EVERYONE is invited! Everyone will learn how to perform chest compressions, use the defibrillators, and save someone from choking. Anyone can do it. Everyone should.

  Class taught by Helen Bagshaw, a Critical Care Nurse
 RSVP to Sandy at the Cathedral office, (507) 452-4770 by Thursday, Sept. 20th.

Religious Freedom Week

Serving Others in God’s Love: Religious Freedom Week 2018


Join us at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart this Thursday, June 28th at 6:30pm for a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for the Religious Freedom of all.
Pray

That the Lord would protect all migrants and refugees, 
and that all those who work with people on the move would be free to serve.

Reflect
The Church has long sought to serve the unique needs of “people on the move,” from providing for basic needs, to assisting with resettlement, to offering legal services to help newcomers navigate the system of their host country.  The Church provides exceptional service in this area and plays an indispensable role in our nation’s immigration and refugee resettlement system.  In recent years, Christian services have faced legal attacks, because the Church refuses to facilitate abortions for the children who come under our care.  Groups like the ACLU set up a perverse dilemma, trying to force the Church to choose between unborn children and migrant children.  By defending religious freedom, we are saying that we refuse to make such a choice.

Act
The USCCB’s Justice for Immigrants Campaign is an effort to unite and mobilize a growing network of Catholic entities and people of goodwill in support of immigration reform.  To learn more about the Church’s work with migrants and refugees, get news, resources, and action alerts from Justice for Immigrants at justiceforimmigrants.org/.

"What if Marriage is more than you think it is?
What if, woven into the very fabric of your humanity, is a purposeful desire placed there by God that will play a vital part in His work in the world? No matter how long you’ve been married, it’s always a good time to discover the deepest spiritual, emotional and practical realities of what your Marriage can and should be.
This special edition of Beloved will show you how through Scripture, Tradition and Church Teaching, God’s desire for your Marriage will bring your truest desires alive. The wonder, mystery and joy behind that first “I do”—whether you said it last year, or years ago—is beautifully depicted visually and practically taught by trusted presenters."

 Video content is followed by discussion questions for couples.
