SECOND COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND: Each year, the annual Collection for the Church in Latin America is held in parishes across the country. Proceeds from this collection go to support the work of pastoral projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. When we contribute to this fund, we are actively participating in the work of solidarity together with our brothers and sisters throughout the hemisphere, and we are building One Church, One America. Please be generous.

INTENTIONS NEEDED: We are in need of Sanctuary Light intentions. Anyone wishing to send in requests may do so by enclosing the intention and donation in a specially marked envelope and placing it in the collection basket.
