Entries for September 2017

Weekend of October 14/15 The 6 Dioceses of Puerto Rico, and Cuba have suffered significant devastation. The Church in Mexico experienced substantial damage, due to the earthquake, in several of the Dioceses, some of which are the poorest in the country. We pray in solidarity for all those who are suffering in these days. Your continued remembrance at Mass is deeply appreciated. There are envelopes in the Church (you can use the Hurricane Harvey envelopes) please indicate “Natural Disaster” collection on the check. Thank you for your continued generosity.
