Roger Nilles GoFundMe Campaign

Roger Nilles GoFundMe Campaign

ProLifeCorner- Freeport Il.- By Laraine Hruby-

Maybe a picture’s worth a thousand words, but first-hand experience is certainly worth more than a million! And it has been my good fortune to Roger Nilles 250xknow Roger and Louise and witness parts of their long history of working together to overcome many debilitating and sometimes life threatening health conditions.  Throughout it all, Louise works full-time and has been able to respond to the many ups and downs which require visits to doctors and ERs, stays in hospital and care centers, whatever it takes in order to treat and surmount conditions involving Roger’s lungs, heart, nervous and circulatory systems, and, most recently a vein collapse which resulted in the necessary amputation of Roger’s left leg above the knee.

And if I had to sum it all up in one word, I’d have to say “AMAZING!” 

Yes, AMAZING, that in spite of all these health conditions, their life is not about trials and survival and focus on pains of the past, but about life and love and looking forward with grateful expectation to that special happiness that comes with love – the love of God and others.

The Feast Day of St. Joseph 2016

The Feast Day of St. Joseph 2016

ProLifeCorner – Freeport Illinois-  For many years various cultures have celebrated Feast 275xSt. Joseph’s feast day, March 19, with a St. Joseph’s Altar.  The custom began after a famine/drought in Sicily.  After asking St. Joseph for his intercession, rain came and the people rejoiced.  They celebrated with an altar of food and flowers in thanks for the prayers of St. Joseph, then the food was donated to the poor.

St. Joseph’s altar has continued in many parishes, especially those with a large Italian population.  St. Joseph’s Church in Freeport, Il. has always been known as the “German parish” in town.  However, our pastor, Fr. Timothy Barr, suggested we have a celebration of St. Joseph’s feast day to honor our patron saint.  Cynthia Saar and Mary Julius traveled to Rockford to meet with Rosie Sheriden, who has a St. Joseph Altar in her home every other year.  St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Rockford, Il has a St. Joseph altar every year.

Unveiling of 1957 Chevy BelAir

ProLifeCorner- – Freeport, Il – It’s here!  For several weeks we have been waiting for a special car to arrive so we can present it to everyone.  That day has arrived!

First let’s get a little background to let you know why all of us involved with the Madonna Renewal Center (MRC) are so excited about this car.  After all, a car is just a car-right?  Wrong!  This car is a vintage automobile donated to the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so they can raffle it off.  This will mean a wonderful contribution to the restoration of the Madonna Renewal Center.  The donor wishes to remain anonymous so we respect his/her wishes and can only say “Thank you and God bless you” whoever you may be.
