Dear Friends,

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & YOUTH MINISTRY REGISTRATION…

…is now taking place.  Parents, please register all your children and teens for our dynamic programs for formation in our faith.  You can do so easily online: visit our website under the LEARN menu.

ADULT SACRAMENTS AND CONVERTS

We have opened registration for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the “RCIA”):  this is for any adult Catholics who have not received all their sacraments, and for any non-Catholics who are interested in becoming Catholic.  Register easily on our website under the “LEARN” menu.

HAITI APPEAL

Thanks to all those who answered our appeal to support our sister parish’s schools in Haiti, providing quality education and nutrition for hundreds of needy children.  If you have not yet taken the time to do so, you can easily give electronically through Faith Direct, using the link on our website under the “GIVE” menu.

MISSION COOPERATIVE APPEAL

Each year the Society for the Propagation of the Faith assigns every parish in the diocece a missionary charity to support.  This year we host Father Vijaya Raju of the Pallotine order, who is preaching at all the Masses this weekend about their missionary work.  Please be generous in supporting their good works! You may give easily, electronically, through Faith Direct, using the link on our website under the “GIVE” menu.

I realize that’s a lot of asking for money–but there are so many needy people everywhere, and we are so blessed:  let us welcome the challenge to be generous in living the corporal works of mercy–and remember, too, that we will be judged accordingly!  (Matthew 25:31-46)

I remain your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
