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.

RENEWING ANNUAL APPEALS FOR GENEROSITY

HAITI. Two weeks ago we had our annual appeal to support our sister parish’s schools in Haiti, providing quality education and nutrition for hundreds of needy children.

MISSION COOPERATIVE. Last weekend, we hosted Fr. Vijaya of the Pallotine order, who preached at all the Masses last weekend about their missionary work.

THANKS to those who have already given in support of those great works!

PLEASE GIVE if you haven’t yet!

HOW TO GIVE. You can easily give electronically through Faith Direct, using the link on our website under the “GIVE” menu.

LABOR DAY

I wish everyone a restful Labor Day weekend. Let’s remember to pray for all who labor, especially under difficult conditions, as well as that those who are unemployed or underemployed may find gainful employment. I hope everyone’s transition back to work and back to school may go smoothly.

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION CENTER

Speaking of “back to school,” our preschool begins a new year this Tuesday with our excellent program of play-based learning. We’re looking forward to a great year for families and for kids!

I remain your servant in Jesus Christ,

Fr. Don
