Climate change, and species extinction, all seem so distant from our ability to control and yet all these changes begin locally, and what each of us does matters.
My name is Phyllis Kist. My husband, the late Dr. Richard Kist, and I have lived on Ninth Avenue North since 1969. Previously, we lived at 728 Fifth Ave. South. We moved to Ninth Avenue North in 1969 for the cul-de-sac, quiet street, and with a growing family, needed more space.

We pray in order to communicate with God to learn His will for us and to offer ourselves to Him. God always answers prayer. He may not, however, answer the way we want Him to.

[Mariannette] Miller-Meeks says she’s “pro-choice” in 2018 video. “I’m also Catholic. I am pro-choice…” and “a person’s choice to get an abortion is best left to doctors, to providers and to patients.” But the baby has no say!
