CATHOLIC HOME MISSIONS APPEAL
Next week, Apr. 27-28 the 2nd Collection will be taken for the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Right now, over 40% of dioceses in the United States are considered mission territory because they are unable to fund essential pastoral work in their communities. Your support of this appeal eases the struggle of these dioceses. Please prayerfully consider how you can support this appeal. Find more information at www.usccb.org/home-missions.
Little White Books, due to popular demand, are available at the Church entrances. As we move into the 50 day Easter Season, we have the opportunity for daily reflections. The key is the right hand-page. On that page each day, except Sundays, we’ll walk through the Sunday Gospels of Cycle C (this year’s liturgical cycle). On Sundays, and periodically throughout the week, we’ll focus on the sacrament of Confirmation and on the Holy Spirit. The left-hand page is like a buffet table with information about the Easter season, or various traditions and customs, or the saint whose feast is celebrated on that particular day. Start with either page, as you wish.
