Catholic Daughters are called to say YES and support one another with emotional and spiritual kinship through shared values, beliefs, traditions, common experiences, activities and unconditional love. Families praying together, working together and playing together will fully encompass the Circle of Love Program. In addition, Circle of Love Family supports initiatives pertaining to the dignity of life -- from conception to natural death.
If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
Court St. Jane Frances de Chantal #2699 is working on new and exciting projects to support Circle of Love Family during this pandemic. Come back and visit this section. We can't wait to share more with you!
The Israelites followed ancient customs by setting up standing stones or stone altars as a reminder of God's covenant and supernatural acts on their behalf. The story of the stone was passed down from generation to generation through oral tradition.
On several occasions, the Bible mentions significant events that were commemorated with stones:
In the New Testament, Peter describes believers as "living stones" (1 Peter 2:5). Peter may have wanted his readers to think of themselves as living standing stones-people who live out their faith so boldly that others take notice. As living stones, Christians should proudly tell about the difference that God has made in their lives.
For the season of Lent, build our own stone monuments with small rocks near an entry to our homes, to remind us of those events in our lives in which God's action was unmistakably evident. During Lent, we can then remember and retell the story of the stones we chose, express our gratitude to our Almighty Father, and cultivate a spirit of service and gratitude.

One of our favorite homilies! All of our homilies at St. Anthony of Padua are amazing, but this particular one by Deacon Mike Krall about Pro-Life was indescribable. Watch it on St. Anthony's Facebook page. You'll want to watch this over and over again. Share this beautiful homily with everyone you know! Click here.
We proclaim that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives this gift has responsibilities toward God, self and others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and nurture human life at every stage of its existence.
