Men’s shop unites mother, son in finding cure for rare disease

Traci Gendron and son Tanner - Storm Men's Shop - Fort Collins - Coloraod

Traci Gendron and her son Tanner opened Storm Men’s Shop to help find a cure for cystinosis.

A men’s shop with a mission has opened in Old Town Fort Collins.

Storm Men’s Shop donates 100% of its profits toward curing cystinosis, an extremely rare disease that attacks internal organs.

Shop owner Traci Gendron and her son Tanner know all too well the need for cystinosis funding. Tanner has the disease, for which there is currently no cure. With only 2,000 cystinosis patients in the world, research funding is scarce.

“I was impressed to learn that this local business is 100% charitable to raise funds and awareness to stamp out this very rare disease,” said Fr. Steven Voss, our pastor, after a recent visit to the shop.

The shop unites Traci and Tanner in a common purpose. “We wanted to create something that my son Tanner and I could do together. It is a win-win for us,” they said on Facebook. “When you shop with us you are also supporting the cure we hoping for. Thank you so much.”

Located at 132 W. Mountain Ave., Storm Men’s Shop describes itself  as “a mid to upscale clothing shop. We can help dress the young professional to the mature man. From casual everyday to going out, and to the office.”

For more information, call Storm Men’s Shop at
(970) 294-6306. Learn more about cystinosis at http://www.cystinosisresearch.org/.

Colorado bishops call for prayer and penance on Aug. 28

The bishops of Colorado have set Friday, August 28th, 2015 as a day of prayer and penance for Catholics and all people of good will in Colorado. The bishops are calling on each one of us to pray and offer penance “in response to Planned Parenthood’s horrific actions and all those involved in the procurement and use of aborted baby organs.”

Some examples of prayer and penance are:
• Attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion
• Meditating on the Word of God
• Spending time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
• Praying the Holy Rosary
• Reciting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
• Praying the Way of the Cross
• Fasting and abstaining from eating meat.

Fr. Steven Voss thanks you for your prayers

Fr. Steven Voss

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your prayers! I have been back in the offices for more than a week now, following a short trip to the hospital for a blood-sugar issue created by a prescribed medication.

I look forward to kicking off the new school year at Saint Joseph Catholic School and continuing our drive to be an amazing parish that truly enables pathways to salvation. We have more exciting projects planned along these lines, and I think you will be pleased.

Meanwhile, please remember that my door is always open.

Again, thank you for your prayers.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Steven

A CALL TO ACTION FOR LIFE

A nationwide protest has been called for on August 22nd.
Fort Collins is one of hundreds of cities that will be participating. In response to the horrific videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s marketing of the body parts of aborted children (can be seen at centerformedicalprogress.com).
On Saturday, August 22nd, from 9-11 am, people are asked to come to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood at 825 S. Shields in Ft. Collins to show that what goes on in that abortion facility is unacceptable. Others may wish to stand at other busy intersections.
Another response is with prayer. Especially during the upcoming 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer campaign, your participation is needed and welcomed. For more information and to register to be a part of this 10th local campaign, please see 40daysforlife.com/fortcollins
It is time to say we have had ENOUGH!

Planned Parenthood baby-parts-sale scandal hits Denver, CSU

“We do tissue collection for CU — CSU in Fort Collins collected some.”
— Dr. Savita Ginde, in undercover YouTube video discussing Planned Parenthood’s methods of compensation for fetal donations

“As Catholics, we need to be extra vigilant and attentive because there are going to be women in our pews who see these videos, and this exposure is going to reopen wounds of abortion that have been buried for many years, especially for those who were told to sign those waivers and that the “tissue” was going to be used in a positive manner. Now they’re going to have the realization that these were complete babies who were dismembered.”
— Lynn Grandon, executive director of Lighthouse Women’s Center

Colorado State University President Tony Frank says he does “not believe that Colorado State University has violated federal or Colorado state law.”

Spiritual classics you can read in, like, 30 minutes. Also, they’re free.

Graphic - spiritual classics you can read in like 30 minutes - DenverCatholic.org

The Roman Catholic Church has existed for 2,000 years and has been blessed with great writers and orators since the beginning. Many of these people’s works are compiled into great spiritual classics, like St. Augustine’s “The Confessions” and Eusebius’ “Church History.”
However, some works are much shorter …
