Altar-Rosary Society - Ladies of St. Isidore Parish 18 years or older are welcome to join the Altar-Rosary Society. The Society's purpose is the spiritual and social benefit of its members. Through donation of time and talents, members provide many social and service events. Please consider using your talents in either a large or small way to serve our parish through this organization of women and view the sign-up sheet after Mass with one of the officers. First meeting is this Thursday, September 21 at The Bend site. A Family Perspective: Unable to forgive another means we are holding onto a past wrong and hoping for a better past. That is not going to happen. We must move on with our life by accepting we were unjustly treated and it will not be corrected. We aren't condoning the injustice. We just don't let it control our lives any longer. Forgiveness is critical to living a healthy life in the present.
