FROM THE PASTOR…..MY DEAR PARISH FAMILY, Next weekend the diocese begins its 2017               CATHOLIC MINISTRIES DRIVE, FORMERLY THE ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL.  The new drive will   provide 100% of revenue for vital ministries in the fiscal year beginning July 1.  These ministries are entirely         dependent upon contributions received through the Catholic Ministries Fund.  More information will come next weekend in the bulletin but I wanted to give you all a heads-up.  Our goal will be approximately $144,000.00 this year, $3,000.00 less from last year.  Please read the following letter from the Bishop I received this week:

Please see the link below to read the letter:

I ask God’s blessings upon us during this drive and I am grateful in advance to all those who will contribute to the 2017 Catholic Ministries Drive.

HUMOR FOR THE WEEK - Benjamin listened closely as Rabbi Greenbaum read from the Bible.  'May I ask a question?' Ben asked. Of course, go ahead, ask your question,' replied the rabbi.  'Well, the Bible says that the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea,' continued Ben, 'also that the children of Israel built the temple, the children of Israel did this and the children of Israel did that.  Didn't the grown-ups ever do anything?'
