Confirmation will be March 15

We have received word that Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday, March 15 at 2:00 PM.  Bishop Rojas, our Vicar here in Vicariate I, will confirm our candidates.

You'll receive more information at a later date, but for now, get the date on the family calendar!
Mercy continues even when the weather is good

There is a temptation, as the weather warms and outside pursuits beckon, to think that we can take a vacation from everything.

Actually summer is a great time to pay attention to the works of mercy. 

You can find ideas on these lists for things to do in your everyday life.
Here are some organized group events for you to take part in:
  • We would love to have you volunteer at Vacation Bible School.  It is great fun and a good leadership opportunity.  You can register to volunteer here.
     
  • Totus Tuus is a new program we are offering this summer. You can volunteer to help with the younger children during the day, as well as participate in the older kids version in the evening.  See David Mika for more details.
     
  • The Produce Mobile will be at St. Emily's on August 8.  Sign up to help here.
     
  • There will be another trip to Feed My Starving Children on August 17. Sign up here.
Besides these special events,  look for other opportunities to help in your family, your school and your neighborhood . Also,  the spiritual works of mercy   are just things that might happen in the course of a day. 
 

If you have any other questions,  please contact Cathy Crino.
