    ANNULMENTS: DEBUNKING THE MYTHS

    Have you ever wondered how a couple who has been mar-ried for 25 years and has 5 children could possibly receive an annulment from the Catholic Church? Do you or a loved one think an annulment is necessary? You are invited to come and find out! Dr. Kelly E. O’Donnell, Director of the Diocesan Tribunal of Shreveport with almost 30 years of experience, will be presenting on the subject of annulments with Q & A afterwards. You are invited to hear her speak at Jesus The Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Monroe, LA on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 6:30PM after the 5:30PM Mass. Bring your questions!

    Prayer for Generosity Lord God, I want to love you, not that I might gain eternal heaven, nor escape eternal hell, but simply

    to love you just because you are my God. Teach me to be generous. Grant me to give to you and not to count the cost; to fight for you and not mind the

    wounds; to toil and not look for rest; to labor and to ask for no reward, except the knowledge that I serve

    my Lord. Amen
