    A member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church has taken the first step toward becoming a nun.
    Molly Rusciolelli, 22, entered the postulancy of the Franciscan Daughters of Mary on Dec. 31.
    “The entire parish is overjoyed at Molly’s entrance into the convent,” said Father Jeffrey Kirby, pastor of Our Lady of Grace. “It’s such a blessing for all of us to see a young woman who is willing to take the leap and discern a religious call.

  • Ministry of outdoor fun!

    A Lancaster-based Christian ministry is giving kids the chance to step outside their comfort zones while teaching them how to bait a hook and reel in a massive catch.

    All for One Ministries in Lancaster has partnered with Backland Outdoors out of Fort Lawn to take 20 kids out on the water catching catfish and 10 into the woods this winter to hunt deer. The outdoors program is called Kidz Outdoor Adventure.

    On Saturday, Aug. 10, the group took 10 kids fishing on Lake Wateree, at no cost to their parents.

  • On faith: Beloved brother prospers spiritually in dedication to God’s truth

    3 John is the apostle John’s personal letter to Gaius. This man was “the wellbeloved,” meaning that many believers loved him, and John added that he loved him according to the truth of God’s word.
    John knew that Gaius was prospering spiritually, and he prayed that he would prosper and be in health to the same degree as his soul prospered. For some that would be a dangerous prayer!

  • Our assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ

    Genuine Christians who read 1 John can find assurance that they are really saved.
    In 1 John 2:3-6, two trademarks of real Christians are mentioned. The first is that “we keep (obey) his commandments.” This is a reference to Christ’s commandments, such as his commandment to “love one another, as I have loved you.”

  • On Faith: Don’t let hectic season distract you from peace that God offers

    Once again we are in the throes of the hectic pace of the Christmas season.
    Festive lights and decorations. Selecting the perfect gift for the perfect (or imperfect) person. The sights and sounds of the season. All these things and much more make the season what it is.
    Or do they? Is this really what the season is all about? Is it really about the lights, the decorations, the presents, the family get-togethers and all the other happenings?

  • On Faith: No IDs, no income limits, just free food and God’s love

    Editor’s note: Debbie Gallien, who was probably born smiling, works the front desk at The Lancaster News. When she asks, “How can I help you?” she really means it.

    Christians are called by God to be his hands and feet. Romans 12:13 tells us: “When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.”
