The Connector
September 15, 2022
This week registered parishioners received a brochure in the mail introducing our Respecting our Past, Serving the Present, Growing our Future program. Your commitment to our parish through this program will bring life to our community.

Join us this weekend as parishioners at each Mass share their commitment to Holy Infant and what it has meant to them and their faith. Please prayerfully consider how you and your family can help Holy Infant by financially supporting our ministries, furthering our mission, and reinforcing our future.
Take a look back at Holy Infant through the years with our 50th anniversary slideshow AND a special throwback to our 40th anniversary with another lookback created by parishioner Eric Tanuan who will be speaking at Mass this weekend.

“May your soul taste all the happiness there is in doing the will of God generously.”

Post-pandemic world

A new book edited and authored by faculty at DeSales University explores ways to make the United States a bit more just, fair, effective, and humane in the aftermath of the global pandemic. Order the book online here.
Each October the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. Our parish participates in service by collecting items to help support the ministries of Pregnancy Support Services, Room at the Inn (a maternity home for homeless women and their children) and Catholic Charities in our area. Visit the Respect Life page on our website (click below) for a list of items needed by these ministries.
