Music Ministry Update - We Need You!! 
We welcome any parishioner to be a part of the Music Ministry here at St. Aidan Parish. The summer can be a great time to join and get your feet wet before fall begins. We have many different groups and can always use more cantors. We are willing to work with anyone individually that would like to join this group. We love having instruments at our liturgies. We have both adult and student instrumentalists and we meet with them on an individual basis. See the bulletin this week for more details. Please prayerfully consider giving of your time and talents in any of these groups. For more information please contact Mary Heagy via email at


“Who will help the women who can’t get abortions?”
  • The Church will never cease to do what it has always done- to pray, work, and serve until the day when every human life is protected in law, and welcomed in love. Until that day comes, and ever after, we will continue to care for women and children in need, so that every mother has the support to joyfully choose life.
  • Through the expansive social ministries of the Church, we do a lot to help mothers in need, but there are tremendous opportunities on the local and parish level to reach out to women who are pregnant and to provide them with the support to choose life. That is why the Church has started “Walking with Moms in Need,” a parish-based ministry where parishes “walk in the shoes” of pregnant and parenting women, so that they have the emotional and material support they need, so that no one gets left behind.
  • Pro-life Americans of all faiths have stepped forward to found thousands of pregnancy care centers and could be counted on to provide even more help as needed. Pro-life activists have been helping these women over the last nearly half-century.”18
Anyone wishing to help promote these initiatives in the parish should contact the parish office.
