Patrick’s Day Mass.“For the people in this area, it’s huge,” Carey said of St. Patrick’s Day.But in a twist of fate few saw coming, all Catholics in northern Greene County will soon be reduced to immigrants once more.Citing a shortage of priests, the diocese in January announced that St. Columbkille is among 38 churches moving to “oratory” status, a move that closes a church as an active worship site.After summer 2018, St. Joseph in Jefferson will exist as Greene County’s sole Catholic parish.“We’re all going to be torn in different directions,” Carey lamented.This St. Paddy’s, drink to that, too.How to goWhat: St. Patrick’s Day Mass, fish fry and variety showWhen: 5:30 p.m. March 17Where: St. Patrick Catholic Church, 449 E Ave., Cedar Township, 4 miles west of ChurdanCost: Free-will donation to benefit programs, utilities and maintenance at the historic church

Funeral home directors call for law to reduce violence at services - Chicago Tribune

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Safe Passage routes, Trotter said.In the last year, there have been at least 17 acts of violence at funerals, according to Bishop Tavis Grant of Antioch Network of Churches & Ministries. But churches and funeral homes don’t have the means to provide security, he said.The violence, which Trotter said often stems from unresolved gang-related incidents involving the deceased, is a threat to the bereaved. Along with the shooting at Golden Gate Funeral Home, Williams said a visitor was stabbed at a service while standing at the casket.But staff members at funeral homes and chapels are also at risk.“There used to be a code amongst different types of folks,” Williams said. “You didn’t bother the people at church, and you didn't bother them at a funeral.“We have to be concerned when men come into the funeral home and we ask them to take off their hat,” she said. “Some of the gang members, that’s their colors, they don’t want to take them off. Or somebody steps on somebody’s foot then they’re ready to fight.”Sweet Holy Spirit Church spokesman Sean Howard said the proposal is under review this week and is being vetted to become a bill.

How to find the joy, whatever your age - Fenton Tri County Times

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Focus on the things you’re grateful for. The longer you live, the more you lose. But as you lose people and things, life can become even more precious. When you stop taking things for granted, you appreciate and enjoy what you have even more.• Acknowledge and express your feelings. Don’t deny what you’re going through by burying your feelings. That can lead to anger, resentment and depression. Find healthy ways to process your emotions — talk with friends, write in a journal, etc.• Accept the things you can’t change. Focus instead on things you can control, like the way you choose to react to problems and situations. Face your limitations with dignity and a healthy dose of humor.• Look at the bright side. When facing major challenges, look at them as an opportunity for personal growth. If your own poor choices contributed to a stressful situation, reflect on them and learn from your mistakes.• Take daily action to deal with life’s challenges. Don’t ignore a problem and sweep it under the rug. Take at least a small step toward resolution. That will keep both the problem and the anxiety from building to a breaking point. Even a small step will build your confidence and make you feel less powerless in a situation.• Continue to find meaning and joy in your life by pursing activities you enjoy, whether it’s going out in nature, traveling on a weekend trip, visiting your grandchildren, etc.• Remember to laugh. Laughter is strong medicine for both the body and the mind. A sense of humor will get you through the tough times. Look outside of yourself and laugh at the absurdities of life.• Stay connected with others. As you age, your support network changes from your co-workers to close friends and family members. The older you get, the more friends you lose, and it’s important to continue to reach out and connect to others. Make an effort to make new friends to widen your social circle. Along with regular exercise, staying social can have the most
