Schoenstatt Family Movement

We pray the rosary, promote expansion of the Pilgrim MTA (Mother Thrice Admirable) devotion and study the teachings of Father Joseph Kentenich. This activity is done to seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother Thrice Admirable, to save the world as we join together with others throughout the world to pray the rosary.
Our mission is to acquaint many people with the MTA and draw them to the Schoenstatt spirituality. This helps us to grow spiritually with Mother Mary's help as she brings us closer to her child, Jesus Christ. This movement involves daily personal and family devotion. The rosary is prayed at 3p.m. on the third Sunday of the month at St. Bernard's Metzdorf Bldg. unless otherwise publicized. For information contact Aileen Dundon: (937) 215-0765.

 

Annulments

The Catholic Church has a deep commitment to the permanence of the marital union. We take the words of Jesus in Mark 10:1-12 and Matthew 5:31-32 and 19:1-19 seriously. We also know sadly sometimes the marriage union suffers deep wounds. A Catholic can approach the Church to see if it is possible to obtain a “Declaration of Nullity”. This is not a moral judgment on the parties. It is not the Church’s approval of a civil divorce or dissolution. It does not place blame on one party or the other.
Here at St. Teresa we have someone on staff who has been trained to handle annulments. Simply call to parish to set up a time. You will be treated with compassion and all is kept confidential. contact Mary Caputo at 342-8861 ext. 512
