This is America:

The Sisters in Huntington




The cup reserved for holy service

Lay hidden on a dark and dusty shelf.

Years and years had passed since it

Was a useful vessel of God given grace.

But it carried a rich history of adventure:

A lone missionary priest, roaming

The imposing hills of West Virginia, -

Often on horseback - in the bygone

Time before technology came to rule

The now calcified world of ruthless

Profit and loss. -  A relic of yesterday’s

Ancient history, now long forgotten.


(West Virginia)

The Vacation Bible School Titled Cool Kingdom was held from 8th July 2019 to 12th July 2019 at Laurel, St. Mary of the Mills Parish Day Care Center.  About 105 school students attend.

The themes were based on Virtues of Mother Mary’s experiences on Obedience, Faith, Love, Purity and Joy.  There was a great display of music, acting, art and craft, faith station fun and games.  So much so that even the snacks were prepared in line with the theme.

* Our Way of Life *


"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)



"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)



"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)



"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)



"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
