  • HOWARDSTOWN; Saint Ann's organized in 1862

    The Louisville Archdiocese website http://www.archlou.org provides background on Saint Ann’s Catholic Church in Howardstown.

    It reads:
    Before a Catholic church was built in Howardstown, priests coming from Hodgenville would swim or wade the Rolling Fork River to celebrate Mass in private homes. The first Saint Ann Church was erected between 1862 and 1865 on the site of the present cemetery, and the first school was built nearby.

  • HOWARDSTOWN; Saint Ann's School a fixture since 1862

    As a light breeze wisps through the dark green leaves of the trees in the rolling knobs of Howardstown, a schoolgirl skips up to and peeks around the corner of a small white building.

    It appears to be a house. But when the girl, in her khaki pants and navy polo, opens one of the bright blue doors, you’ll see classrooms and students inside. The building is one of the oldest schools in the area – Saint Ann’s.

  • Our short lives are secure in God’s hands

    At different times Mother would say, “Phyllis, one night you will go to bed young, but when you get up the next morning, you will be old.”  

    I honestly didn’t understand what she meant until now. Time flies.

    Our aging is secure in God’s hands. Looks, health and circumstances change with time. In order to stay young, many will try to cling to outward beauty. They want to have their youthful strength and accomplishments made while working.

    God is our creator and he has made each of us according to his plan.

  • This word is small, but meaningful

    Small words sometimes have great meaning. Such is the word “till” in 1 Corinthians 11:26.

    Paul says, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He come.” The apostle says the Lord’s Supper is a reminder against man’s forgetfulness.

    “Till” is a waiting word. Jesus said to his disciples in John 14:1-3 “I go to prepare a place for you … I will come again.” We are to wait until he returns. He left earth, but he will return.
