Catholic Services Appeal
The 2017 Catholic Services Appeal has begun. All parishioners should have received information and a donation envelope in the mail. Please bring your envelope with your donation and place it in the regular collection this weekend. There are additional envelopes in the pews. This annual campaign supports many ministries throughout the Archdiocese that no one parish can support on its own. To see a video of how your donations are put to use for the Kingdom of God, click here. If we meet our parish goal, 25% of the funds collected are returned to our parish.
Learn About Alternatives to the High-School Health Requirement!
Earlier this winter, Fr. Richards urged 8th-grade parents to consider opting out of the public high-school health requirement on the grounds that certain of the content is opposed to Catholic moral teaching. On Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m. (following the 6:30 p.m. Mass), we are hosting a meeting for all interested middle-school and high-school families on the public high-school health requirements and your options for opting out. Parishioner and parent Michelle Lemonds and other parish families will be there to walk you through the requirements and alternative health education options. Join us in the Gathering Space at 7 p.m., or email Jim Thorp with questions.
