Who are the Men of IHM?
Join us for the last meeting of the calendar year. This special meeting will not be our usual format and hopefully it will us to learn more about each other. Dress nice…there might be a picture.
There will be no meetings on December 24 and December 31. Please see the calendar below for more information.
Wives Event Photos
The pictures of the couples from that event have been uploaded. Enjoy.
Walt mentioned that he wanted to get know all of the ladies’ names. If you click on the pictures, it will display the names of the people in photograph. It can be used as a study guide.

Children Lean What They Live Prayer
Here is the prayer that Steve Frazer read on December 10:
If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, she learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, she learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, she learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, she learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, she learns to like herself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, she learns to find love in the world!
Social Ministry Commission Opportunities
Chris Pollock and Ken Cornish are currently involved with the SMC.
Our Social Ministries mission statement is to encourage, support, and demonstrate the Christ-like servant leadership of IHM parish members in their efforts through prayer, advocacy, education and financial and material support of those in need.Our commission has 18 sub committees who work in soup kitchens,collect Christmas gifts, work on environmental issues, do twinning projects with Batahola and Our Lady of the Mountains, collect canned goods for food pantry, etc.Our four major social justice goals this year are servant leadership,Parishes for Life, preventing foreclosures, and working with the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops on immigration issues.We need individuals with a heart that embraces Catholic Social Teaching which is to name several themes to respect all life, option for the poor, protect our environment, and global solidarity. We could do more work if we had more hands. We meet the 1st Monday of the month at 7:15 and would love to meet before hand with anyone interested in joining our commission

- As a child’s independence is developed, mothers are often treated poorly by their offspring. This can be particularly difficult for moms. How do we, as fathers, act to support our wives during this time? Presented by Team 6
