hank you for your generous contribution
Last Sunday, August 6th, we had the opportunity of listening to Fr. Jonathan speak about the challenges they live as a Catholic community in the Philippines.
Your generosity has made it possible that the Diocese of Catarman receives a donation in the amount of $2,350, as a generous contribution to the upbuilding of the Kingdom of God in that community, which today, feels grateful to God for the blessings you have shared with them. May God reward your generous contribution in favor of the missions.
Fulfilling our obligation as Catholics
On Tuesday, August 15th, the Church invites us to celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into heaven. It is a holy day of obligation. This means that we have to fulfill the mandate given to us by the Law of God which invites is to sanctify holy days and days of obligation.
To make it easier for you fulfill your obligation as Catholics, the following is a schedule of the Masses we will celebrate on Tuesday, August 15th:
7:00am Holy Mass in English
12:05pm Holy Mass in English
5:30pm Bilingual Holy Mass in English & Italian
7:00pm Holy Mass in Spanish
Not attending Holy Mass impedes you from receiving Holy Communion next time you come to the Eucharist.
Volunteers, A Great Gift From God
Many of you accepted the invitation to be volunteers at our parish festival. You have understood that the generosity of your time is a way of helping our community and of reassuring the success of our festival.
We still need more volunteers.

Saturday, October 7, 4:00-10:00 pm

Please remember that you can be a volunteer and involve your family at the same time.
Once again, thanks a million for responding in such a generous way to the invitation to serve our community.
God bless you for all you do for our parish community.
