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.

Call to Renew Campaign

As today, being the 3rd Sunday of the month, we have a second collection for the Call to Renew Campaign. With each donation, we are able to meet our parish goal to build our pastoral center.
Please place your payment envelope in the 2nd collection. Please ask the ushers for any additional envelopes. Thank you!
Your generosity will help our parish community in numerous ways, specifically towards the construction of our pastoral center. To further aid the completion of our project, we invite families to make a pledge to continue to give in the second collection every 3rd Sunday.

Did You Know?

What makes a child run away?

An endangered runaway is a child under the age of 18 who goes missing on his or her own accord, and whose parents do not know where they are. These children are vulnerable to abuse, trafficking, homelessness, and substance abuse. A young person may think running away is the only option if he or she is subject to abuse at home, family conflicts, struggles with mental health, drugs, or alcohol, or becomes the victim of an online predator. For more information on endangered runaways, visit https://www.missingkids.org/theissues/runaways.
