SHARING IN MINISTRY: Today we learn more about the Sharing in Ministry Bishop’s Annual Appeal, which is taking place throughout the Diocese of Fort Worth this month. This appeal gives us the opportunity to act together as a diocesan family and support programs and services no single parish can offer. Every gift is vital to the success of the appeal, which will also benefit our parish in a sharing to assist local parish needs. Please give as generously as you can to Sharing in Ministry.

 SPECIAL COLLECTION: Thank you for your generous support of our second collection last weekend which was for The Catholic University of America. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

THANK YOU: Our thanks and appreciation to KJT #107 who purchased two Smart TVs for our Religious Education program.
