BISHOP'S MINISTRY APPEAL

Our final Bishop’s Ministry Appeal report for this year shows our parish is 140% of our Goal. 432 families participated in this appeal and because of that over $35,000 will come back to our parish next year. On behalf of Fr. Khoi, we offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone that participated in this important cause.

Also, we received word from Catholic Charities that our parish members contributed over $7,500 so far, to this year’s Catholic Charities Collection. This is $1,370 over last year. Congratulations and thank you!

Our Lady Of Fatima Shrine
Our parish has a small, dedicated group that has been working for many years to plan for a shrine for Our Lady of Fatima. We are now ready to order the statue and build the shrine. Watch for more information on this project in the coming bulletins. We still need help to pay for the project and build a worthy shrine for the patron of our parish.

The Catholic Social Services Guild invites you to join us in supporting seniors in Stanislaus County! This fun group was founded in 1975 by Marie Gallo, who saw that there needed to be an organization to support services for seniors in our County. The commitment of the CSSG is to provide funding for the Catholic Charities Homemaker Program, which provides services to allow low-income, frail and at-rick seniors to remain safely in their homes. Services include light housekeeping, meal preparation and other light tasks. Please consider joining this wonderful organization, which provides social and spiritual fellowship to all of its members, as we raise funds and awareness for our seniors. For membership information please call 578-4338.

Pray For Seminarians
If we want more priests, we must pray for Vocations and for our Seminarians, Priests, and Religious every day.


Fridays, join us for the 8 am
Mass with food and fun to follow!
This is for all junior high
and high schoolers!

SECURITY
For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

Don’t Be A Victim
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people w ho watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities.
Don’t be a victim!
