Making all things new … God’s promise and our responsibility
Our parish is conducting our campaign for the Annual Catholic Appeal. Please remember that the Annual Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a gift payable in installments.
The new Annual Catholic Appeal theme, “Making all things new … God’s promise and our responsibility,” is an important theme as we prayerfully consider our support for the Appeal but also important for embracing the life that the Lord wants us to live.
Each pledge makes a difference! All parish communities participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our parishes, schools and ministries to deliver needed services. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
To make your gift, you can complete the mail-in giving envelope available at church or make a gift online at annualcatholicappeal.com.
CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR ADULTS
We often do not imagine Jesus as someone who himself experienced profound sorrow. When he prays in the Garden of Gethsemane, his prayer echoes and carries with it the sorrow felt by all peoples in agony. This holy Lenten season, let us consider where we feel sorrowful, where in our own lives we might be “in agony,” and how Jesus’ Passion invites us to surrender to a love that conquers even death itself, the very love of God.
In this 5-week series, you will:
• Develop an understanding of Jesus through examination of particular Old and New Testament texts, which illuminate his life and teaching!
• Explore both classic and modern understandings of Christian “Atonement,” that is, how and why we believe Jesus’ death on the cross, specifically, effects salvation for all.
• Cultivate and nurture personal relationship with Jesus by engaging in rich, meaningful discussion!
Meet on-line via Zoom, 2 hours per week, 5 weeks in a row March 7th – April 7th
Monday Evenings | 6:30 – 8:30pm OR Thursday Mornings| 10am – 12pm

We invite you to spend some time this week reflecting on the Annual Catholic Appeal materials you should have received in your bulletin or in the mail. The Annual Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection: It is a pledged commitment to make a gift over time. Your pledge can be made payable in installments.
Each pledge makes a difference because all parishes participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our archdiocese to deliver needed ministries and services to answer the call of “Making all things new … God’s promise and our responsibility.”
If you received your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back. This year, we also encourage our parishioners to make their Annual Catholic Appeal gifts online at annualcatholicappeal.com
Ash Wednesday is March 2, 2022.
Opportunities to receive ashes are as follows:

We would love to continue this wonderful community event and hope you will consider sharing your time and talents to keep the tradition running!
