Seed & Soil Rural Life Mass to be hosted May 15 by St. Thomas, near Miles

    MILES — The Seed & Soil Rural Life Mass will be celebrated Tuesday, May 15, 2007, the Feast Day of St. Isidore, Patron Saint of Farmers and Rural Life.
   Hosted by St. Thomas in Miles, San Angelo Bishop Michael D. Pfeifer will preside over a 6:30 p.m. Mass in a field near Miles.
   “All of us are involved in some form of agriculture or rural life, as we depend on farmers and ranchers to provide food for our tables,” said Deacon Charlie Evans, diocesan Director of Rural Life. “Keeping this in mind we hope that you, even though your parish may be a rural parish, will come and celebrate with us.”
   Evans said farmers and ranchers are asked to bring a small bag of soil and a small bag of seed from his or her farm or ranch; baskets of grain, produce, cotton, home canned food or vegetables are also requested. Any food remaining after the Mass will be donated to a food bank.
   DIRECTIONS: The Seed & Soil-Rural Life Mass will be celebrated at Hwy. 67 & County Road 357, just north of Hwy 67. The location is approximately 2.5 miles east of Miles and 6.5 miles west of Rowena.
   Prayers for rain will be offered and a meal will follow the Mass.
   A meal will be served immediately following the Mass.
