Mary Magdalene Catholic Church _Science_flyerDo You Believe in Miracles?

Can miracles stand up to the test of science?

You will see footage of a Stigmatist bleeding from her hands, feet and head, a statue weeping real tears and shedding real blood, and a consecrated host turned into real heart tissue.

Could these claims be true? What does science have to say?

Tim Francis travels the nation presenting these scientists’ findings and the amazing things he has learned.

If you have an “I will believe it when I see it” attitude, then you won’t want to miss this event:

More on Tim Francis:

Tim Francis was a doubting Thomas when it came to his faith. He grew up thinking church was boring and stopped attending services. But then he saw a video that changed his life. The video was about miracles that had undergone scientific study which completely changed the minds of the skeptical producers of the video. After that, Tim was determined to find out more about miracles, even to the point of pursuing the people who had produced and appeared in the original video. Tim now travels the country telling thousands what amazing things he’s learned. His compelling presentation includes actual footage of a stigmatist bleeding from her hands, feet and head, a statue weeping real tears and shedding real blood, and a consecrated host turned into real heart tissue. Tim will present the scientists’ findings.

Baby-Boy-Welcome-CardLVG members who prayed at the Greenville abortion facility on July 30 met a wonderful family of Prince of Peace Catholic Church parishioners who consistently pray at the facility on Saturdays for >5 years. Their son, age 14, recounted an inspirational story of speaking with a woman who intended on aborting her unborn child. The teenager shared with this young Mom how grateful he was that his Mom had chosen life despite being encouraged toward abortion, too. After conversation and with the Lord’s work in this young Mom’s heart, she decided to keep her child. But, she is need of baby items including clothing, diapers, bathing items, etc.
