CATHOLIC CHARITY FUND APPEAL
On the weekend of September 12 & 13, we will be having our In-Pew Solicitation for the Catholic Charity Fund Appeal. If you haven't had the opportunity to contribute to the 2020 Catholic Charity Fund Appeal, now is the time to do so. We have collected $24,820.00 so far by contributions through the mail. We still need $13,180.00 to reach our goal of $38,000. We thank you for your continued support!
You can Text the word 'Appeal' to our Text to Give Line: (401) 496-9889. You'll be sent the secure giving link in a text message, and you can make your gift that day.
You can also go online at www.givecentral.org/2020CCA to access the online giving site for the 2020 Catholic Charity Appeal.
PRIESTS RETIREMENT COLLECTION
After decades of faithful service, many retired priests continue to serve where they are needed, while others require assisted living, or nursing home care. Since priests are paid a very modest wage, they cannot rely upon Social Security to make ends meet. No longer able to rely upon parishes for basic living needs, senior priests depend on support from this challenged fund. Your generosity will make a difference in the lives of many who have served faithfully for many years in ministry - some of whom continue to serve well after their 'retirement.' The collection is also our way of saying "thank you" for that service. At Masses on September 19 & 20, our parish will join others throughout the Diocese in a collection in support of the Senior Priest Retirement Fund. Please consider a generous donation in support of our senior priests. To learn how this fund benefits senior priests or to make an online donation, please visit www.srpriestri.com. Thank you for your support of this worthy endeavor.
Come Holy Spirit Come
We all know our world, our church, our community, and our Parish has been changed. Extreme emotions have been felt. Let us cautiously be aware of our needs to pray and to be aware of our health and safety for everyone. Here are some guidelines to follow in Church:
1) Everyone needs to wear a mask! If you do not have one, a mask will be given to you to keep.
2) Social distancing is a must. Please keep 6 feet apart unless you are a family unit.
3) The Church will be cleaned after every Mass.
4) Hand sanitizer is at the doors of the Church.
5) Please follow directions(arrows) to move about the Church.
6) There will be no missalettes used in Church.
7) Collection baskets will be at the doors of the Church for you to put your budget envelopes in. They will not be passed during Mass.
God Blessings to you all!
Ordination of Fr. Hiep Nguyen
Spiritual Communion Prayer
"My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentaly, come at least spiritually into my heart...I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You." Pope Francis
