Second Collection Letter for Church in Latin America and Church in Africa

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

At times we face many challenges in living out our faith and sharing it with others. Still, through God's grace, light always shines through and hope rises. You can provide hope to many by supporting next weekend's special collection on August 9 and 10 to support the Church in Latin America and the Church in Africa.

The Church in Africa is the fastest-growing Catholic community in the world. Many people in Africa face a daily reality of food insecurity, water shortage, unemployment, lack of medical care, and illiteracy. Some are refugees escaping violence and drought who find God's love in the pastoral care provided by priests, sisters and lay workers. At the same time, Catholicism is flourishing amid these harsh circumstances. Projects are being funded that nourish the people of Africa in both body and spirit.

Your support helps Catholic dioceses in Latin American countries minister to youth and provide catechesis instruction to those who work in rural areas. In El Salvador, one local diocese used funds to start a youth enrichment program to help youth who are at high risk for violence and gang activity. Now these young adults can become youth leaders to spread the Gospel in their neighborhoods and break the cycle of violence. In Ecuador, one local diocese held a three-day formation for 2,500 catechists, many of whom traveled miles to learn so they could go back to their isolated areas and teach others.

Your generosity to the Collection for the Church in Latin America and the Church in Africa is invaluable to the future of the Church in both of those regions. Please take this opportunity to share your faith. Your support will empower the faithful to deepen their faith and share it with others.

With gratitude and every prayerful wish, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,


Now Accepting Fall Registrations

Eucharistic Ministers

Our brothers and sisters commissioned are to be entrusted with administering the Eucharist and with taking Communion to the sick and the home bound. In this ministry, they must be examples of Christian living in faith and conduct; they must strive to grow in holiness through this sacrament of unity and love. Remember that, though many, we are one body because we share the one bread and one cup. As Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion be, therefore, especially observant of the Lord's command to love your neighbor.

For when he said to them:
"This is my commandment, that you should love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12.


Women of God Ministry

The Women of God invite you to join them as they pray and study the word of Christ. This devout group of women give for the better of God and our church.

They meet every Wednesday at
6:00pm to 7:00pm in the Chapel.
