Called to Mercy
Parish Goal: $ 144,364 Raised to Date: $ 125,790
We've reached almost 85% of our parish goal! If you haven't given to this campaign as yet, please prayerfully consider making a donation. One of our parish goals is outreach to the poor, and the House of Charity helps us meet that goal through it's support of social and community services and compassionate outreach. And remember, once we reach our goal, 10% of the money raised is returned to our parish to be used in our own community for local needs. Additionally, 75% of money collected above our goal is returned to our parish.
Thank you for your generosity and for helping to continue the mission of the Church in our diocese!
Jubilee of Mercy - the Door of Mercy is Open
I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting Him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her. — Pope Francis

Something to think about...questions for this week
Today we are called to reflect upon and reaffirm our faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. When we receive the Eucharist, we receive God's own divine presence. Do you allow yourself to become what you receive, and therefore bring God’s love to your world?
(Remember - though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
What is God calling you to do?
