We, the parish community of St. Michael
Catholic Church in Van Buren, Arkansas, know that we
are part of the Body of Christ. Our call is to make Christ
present in our own lives and the lives of those with
whom we associate. We do this through prayer, the
celebration of the sacraments, religious education, and
the example of our lives of faith, hope, and love.

Worship Night in America Join us Tuesday, October 25, for a one-night-only event that is an evening of Unity and
Prayer for our country. Hear Chris Tomlin, Max Lucado, Louie Giglio and many more national faith leaders and musical
guests for Worship Night in America. This event is playing exclusively and one night only in theatres and select churches
nationwide and includes exclusive back-stage footage and interviews that will inspire, challenge and encourage your
family, church and community. Purchase tickets at Christomlin.com If enough tickets are sold, it will be presented at
a Malco theatre in Ft. Smith.
Love and Protection of the Unborn The whole mission of the Catholic Church in the world—the theme and purpose and
vocation of every institution and every Catholic individual—is love. Why does the Church set up hospitals and adoption
agencies and soup kitchens? Why have whole orders of nuns been founded to care for the elderly or the sick? Why did St.
Damien offer to go to spend his last years serving in a leper colony in Hawaii? Why did Mother Teresa establish homes for
men dying of AIDs? It’s not for money. It’s not for recognition. It’s not a plan to increase our numbers and our social
influence. It’s not even because the Church is committed to taking care of her own. It matters not at all to any of these
institutions or individuals whether the people they’re serving are Catholic. They don’t have to be Catholic. They can even
be anti-Catholic. We don’t do it for ourselves; we do it for love. We do it because we understand that each and every
person is made in the image and likeness of God. Each, no matter how small or weak or wounded or messed up, is
completely unique and infinitely precious. We understand that all human life -- including every child in the womb -- is
a gift to be received, cherished, and served, not abused, not manipulated, not degraded, not destroyed.
PROTECTING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE: The Diocese of Little Rock is committed to protecting children and young
people. If you are aware of abuse or have been abused by clerics, church volunteers, or church workers, please contact
the Diocese of Little Rock at (501) 664-0340, ext. 366 and the state of Arkansas hotline for crimes against children at
(800) 482-5964. For pastoral guidance, contact Drs. George & Sherry Simon at (501) 766-6001.

Si creemos que tenemos una relación de Alianza con Dios, también debemos aceptar que tenemos una relación de Alianza
con nuestros hermanos, particularmente con los pobres, los débiles y los sin poder. No podemos vivir en una manera que
protege el interés propio mientras ignoramos las angustias de los menos afortunados y los que están en apuros.
Noche de Adoración en America El Martes, 25 de Octubre, habrá un evento de una noche no más que es una noche
de unidad y oración para nuestro país. Puedes oír Chris Tomlin, Max Lucado, Louie Giglio, y otros que son liders de la
Fé. Este evento será en teatros y Iglesias. Pueden comprar boletos por computadora a Christomlin.com. Si se venda
suficiente boletos, este evento será en el Malco teatro in Fort Smith. (Disponible solamente en Inglés)
Amor y Protección del Neonato Toda la misión de la Iglesia Católica en el mundo – el motivo, propósito y vocación
de cada institución y cada individuo Católico – es amor. ¿Por qué la Iglesia establece hospitales? ¿ Por qué tiene
completas congregaciones de monjas que han sido formadas para la atención de los ancianos o enfermos?¿Por qué San
Por qué Madre Teresa establece hogares para los hombres que están muriendo de Sida? Esto no es por dinero. No, por
reconocimiento. No, es un plan para aumentar nuestros números e influencias sociales. Esto no es aún por qué la Iglesia está comprometida a cuidar de los suyos. No tienen que ser Católicos. No lo hacemos por nosotros, lo hacemos por
amor. Cada uno, no importa cuán pequeño o débil, herido o desordenado, es totalmente único e infinitamente valioso.
Entendemos que toda vida humana -- incluyendo cada infante en el vientre materno -- es un regalo para ser recibido,
apreciado y servido, no abusado, no manipulado, no denigrado y no destruido.
Protegiendo Niños y Jovenes: La diocesis de Little Rock está comprometida a protejer los niños y los jovenes.
Si tú estás consciente de un abuso o has sido abusado por clérigos, voluntarios de la iglesia, o trabajadores de la iglesia,
por favor contactar la Diocesis de Little Rock al 501-664-0340 ext. 366 y al estado de Arkansas para crimenes encontra
de niños al 800-482-5964. Para guía pastoral, contactar a Drs. George & Sherry Simon al 501-766-6001.
