When it seems hopeless, Mary’s Inn Maternity Home is here for you.
“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him.” Psalm 62:5
In November 2012, Marian Bourek, Sue Lansing, and Colleen Pasnik
decided to follow an inspirational calling from God to found a maternity
home for single mothers in crisis pregnancies. They knew through a
variety of experiences with Dubuque County Right to Life and the
Archdiocesan Gabriel Project and in conversations with community
agencies that a maternity home was necessary for our community. Over
time, God quietly instilled the responsibility in their hearts to found
Mary’s Inn, which offers vulnerable women of any age and of any (or no)
faith a safe haven where they can stay while learning the skills they
need to make a better life for themselves and their babies.

"The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will
spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him
and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help
bring about everlasting peace on earth,"
- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
The Power of Prayer, Inc. was incorporated on the Feast of St. Martha,
July 29, 1970 by Jerry Trimble. "The Power of Prayer is a new
organization which will work to bring about a new understanding of the power of prayer today.
A great many people would admit that prayer was powerful in biblical
times, even to bringing about miracles, but many people do not feel
that prayer is as powerful today, and they have drifted away from it.
The truth is prayer is every bit as powerful now as in biblical times for those who have deep faith in it, and it is very capable of solving our toughest problems in our times."
(July 2, 1970) The Power of Prayer is dedicated to promoting
awareness of the value of prayer, and of devotion to Jesus through

" He was a man of the people. He was zealous of his people's welfare, and all the kindliness of his priestly soul asserted itself more strongly in his unceasing efforts for the betterment of their condition....Oh, Reverend Founder....that act alone which gave life to the Knights of Columbus has surely secured for thee everlasting joy and eternal peace. - Reflection on Fr. Michael J. McGivney, Founder, Knights of Columbus.
1882: The Knights of Columbus is born on Feb. 6, 1882, when the first
members choose Columbus as their patron. Immediately after the Order’s
March 29 incorporation, Father McGivney sends the first diocesan-wide
appeal for new members to his fellow priests.
1886: By the end of his four-year tenure as supreme knight, James T.
Mullen personally presides at the institution of 22 of the first 38
councils. John J. Phelan is elected to succeed him and is the first
supreme knight to sense the Order’s destiny as a national society.
1890: Father McGivney dies Aug. 14, 1890. His funeral Mass is celebrated in Thomaston, Conn., four days later.
1892: The Order passes laws allowing noninsurance or associate members to join.
1892: 6,000 Knights march in the New Haven Columbus Day parade to
celebrate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the New World.
1895: The Vatican’s first acknowledgment of the Knights comes when
Archbishop Francesco Satolli, apostolic delegate to the United States,
writes a letter extolling the “merits of this splendid Catholic
organization” and giving the Order his apostolic blessing.
1897: On Nov. 25, 1897, Canada’s first council — Montreal Council 284 — is chartered.

Serrans accept as their responsibility the promotion of vocations to
the priesthood and religious life. They possess a deep appreciation of
the ministerial priesthood as being essential to the Church. Serrans
have been generous in offering their support to those who hear the call
to serve Christ in the priesthood. — Saint John Paul II
The Serra International Foundation was founded in 1951 to assist Serra
in fulfilling its objectives of fostering and promoting vocations in the
Catholic Church. Since that time, the Foundation has funded a wide
range of programs for the formation and training of priests and
Serra International is not a fundraising
organization. Its primary methods are prayer and action. The
Foundation’s role is to support and complement those methods, not to
eclipse them. Nevertheless, the importance of the Foundation’s role has
never been greater.

'Stop your crying and wipe away your tears.
All that you have done for your children will not go unrewarded.
They will return from the enemy's land.
There is hope for your future.
Your children will come back home.
I, the Lord, have spoken'.

spread rapidly throughout the world with contacts in over 100 Countries
and has the approval, support and blessing of Christian leaders of all
There are now thousands of groups around the world. Two grandmothers,
Veronica and her sister- in- law Sandra, felt led by the Lord to start
Mothers Prayers and to pray in a special way for their children
They felt that they should bring all the pain and the worries they
had for their children to Him and to trust in His words 'Ask and you
Through this promise, they understood that the Lord is
just waiting to take away pain and to bless and heal them and their
children when they come to Him in Faith.
During these years there have been many, many wonderful answers to
prayers including children coming off drugs, children returning home
after being absent for many years, improvements in children's health and
relationships (in the family and at school).
The mothers also have been blessed and have experienced a great peace.

"End poverty through systemic change." Society of St. Vincent De Paul
PATRON: St. Vincent De Paul
Blessed Frederic Ozanam (1813 - 1853) was founder of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Frederic was a husband and father, professor and servant of the poor. He founded
the Society of St. Vincent de Paul as a young student with others of
the Sorbonne in Paris. Sister Rosalie Rendu, a Daughter of Charity, is
considered a mentor of Frederic and of the Society of St. Vincent de
Paul as she taught the first members the art of helping the poor and the
sick. Frederic's writings on social justice anticipated the first
social encyclical of our modern times, Rerum Novarum.
Blessed Rosalie Rendu, DC (1786 - 1856) was a Daughter of Charity who served for 54 years in the Mouffetard area, the most impoverished
district of Paris. Emmanuel Bailly, the President of the Society, sent
the founding members of the Society to Sister Rosalie for guidance and
direction. Sending them on home visits, she formed them in the spirit of
St. Vincent, teaching them how to serve the poor with respect and

"FRIENDSHIP, UNITY and CHRISTIAN CHARITY"
The initials AOH may tell the story best. Those who say it means Add One
Hour are describing the easygoing, no rush attitude of many of its
members, while America’s Only Hope has been used to define the loyalty
of the Irish to the principles of their adopted land. In any case, its
members are best described by the statement, To be Irish is a Blessing,
To be a Hibernian is an Honor.

"Helping the needy through love and faith."
During the Great Depression circa 1932, Rev. William Masters and
Edward Beach encountered dozens of men in our community who had lost the
ability to provide for their shelter, clothing and food. Rev. Masters
and Mr. Beach began making soup to feed them and rented a house to
provide overnight shelter. These were the humble beginnings of The
Dubuque Rescue Mission.
For 81 years, the D.R.M. has served the needs our brothers and sisters
who are poor offering overnight shelter for 45 men; providing over 230
meals a day to those seeking food and fellowship and providing clothing
and other material goods to those with no means to pay.
We have a small staff of 5 and depend heavily on the charity of others to meet the needs of all those who seek our services.
The Dubuque Rescue Mission has provided emergency shelter for men since
1932. Currently we provide 45 beds each night. This amounts to 16,000
bed nights each year.

“Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God
of hosts, will be with you, as you have said. Hate evil and love good
and establish justice at the gate; it may be that the Lord, the God of
hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph” (5:14-15).
Restorative justice is a theory of justice that can be
employed both re-actively, in response to conflict and/or crime, and
proactively to strengthen community by fostering communication and
empathy. Restorative Justice invites everyone impacted by a conflict
and/or crime to develop a shared understanding of both the root causes
and the effects. Restorative Justice seeks to address the needs of
those who have been harmed, while encouraging those who have caused harm
to take responsibility. Restorative Justice emphasizes the capacity of
all people for healing, growth, and transformation and in this way it
encourages accountability, self-determination, healing, and
