Important Information about VRS (Videophone Relay Service)

Fr. MD (Michael Depcik) sent us an important letter.  Please take the time to read and send your own e-mail by using the link provided. Thank you, Msgr. Nelson

Dear Deaf and Hearing Friends,
      A few people had sent me e-mails saying that the FCC was thinking about cutting back the benefits of videophone relay service.  At first I thought those were just rumors.  Unfortunately, I learned that they were true.  Please go to and send out an already prepared e-mail developed by Sorenson Company.  All you have to do is to click a few buttons and your letter will be sent.  It took me only a few minutes.  Please do this if you want to continue enjoying benefits of videophone.  Thank you.  And hearing people, please help us by sending out the prepared e-mail.  Please click the button for hearing people who enjoy the benefits of videophone that enable them to communicate with their deaf friends.

Fr. MD


Prayer For Religious Liberty

Almighty God, Father of all nations,
For freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus (Gal 5:1).
We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty,
the foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good.
Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties;
By your grace may we have the courage to defend them, for ourselves
and for all those who live in this blessed land.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness,
and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
with whom you live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
