NO DAILY MASSES: Father Ouseph will be going to India for a family wedding from January 11th until January 22nd. There will be no daily Masses during this time. Weekend Masses are as usual.
SPECIAL COLLECTION: There will be a second collection this weekend for the tornado victims of the Diocese of Dallas.
SECOND COLLECTION: Next week, we will take up the Collection for the Church in Latin America. In Peru, the 14 villages of Chazuta, in Mayobamba, are all located away from the city center, with the most remote only accessible by boat. The faithful in these communities do not have access to catechetical formation, and members often feel separated from the life of the universal Church. Through a grant from the Collection for the Church in Latin America, the religious congregation of the Missionaries of Jesus was able to provide faith formation, spiritual retreats, and workshops to nearly 250 people. Upon completion, participants were better equipped to help others deepen their faith and answer questions. The program also renewed their sense of commitment to their parishes and created stronger bonds with in their own families. Through this program, members of the Chazuta villages felt the love and support of the universal Church. Please support programs like these and give generously in next week’s collection.
POINSETTIAS: Christmas decorations will come down after Sunday’s Mass. Feel free to take a poinsettia home.
