Did You Know?

Underage drinking can cause brain damage

Underage drinking can certainly get your teen into a lot of trouble — loss of driving privileges, fines, and even criminal charges. But underage drinking can also cause significant brain damage. An adolescent’s brain does not fully develop until the age of 25. Early alcohol use can affect that development, causing memory problems and potential dependency on alcohol later in life. For more information to share with your teenagers, read the VIRTUS® article, “Underage drinking isn’t just illegal, it damages the brain” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.

Pledge Payment Sunday

To make it easier for families to keep up with their pledge payments, we will designate the 3rd Sunday of each month as PLEDGE PAYMENT
SUNDAY for the Called to Renew campaign. On August 21st, please bring your payment envelope to Mass and place it in the 2nd collection. Of course, if you prefer to mail-in your payment you may continue to do so.
