Fr. Maro’s Weekly Message

Fr. MaroDear Parishioners,

Next weekend is Commitment Weekend for the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal. During Mass we will watch a video from Archbishop Sample about the Appeal. If you received a personalized commitment card in the mail, please bring it to Mass with you as we join together to support our Catholic Church in western Oregon. If you did not receive a commitment card in the mail, pledge envelopes will be available during Mass.

This next week, please read the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal materials you received in the parish bulletin today and prayerfully reflect on the level of commitment you will make next weekend.

The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal provides substantial financial support to essential ministries that support parishes in our Catholic Church in western Oregon. These programs provide education and faith formation at all levels and provide a Catholic presence for tens o f thousands of people.

The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal is an invitation for us to share our blessings and support for the Gospel mission here in western Oregon.

While we can never out-do God in generosity, we are called to join in the mission of the Gospel as we put forth the gifts of life, goodness, and grace through the sharing of our own blessings from God.

In Christ,
Fr. Maro
