June 11 Update     

A special word of recognition and ‘Thank-you’ to those who made a gift to Project Advance either ‘online’ or with the ‘Pledge Brochure’ this past week. Your gift will make a difference in how we as a Parish and Archdiocese will be able to respond to the many among us who are seeking ‘Real Presence’, Blessing – the actual ‘touch of God’ upon their life and family…

Project Advance along with ensuring that we have the resources to respond to the real needs for Ministry ‘among the poor’ also ensures that we have the resources to do appropriate ‘Faith Formation’ … For instance – our Archdiocese offers a wonderful Marriage Preparation Program that is ‘enjoyed’ and ‘valued’ by all of our engaged couples.

The Archdiocese also offers ‘youth’ focused events and programs so that our youth grow in stature and wisdom. Plus the Archdiocese offers many other programs to nurture and support family life including programs to support and be Church with and for children and adults with ‘special needs’ …

Every gift to Project Advance touches a life…shapes a life…forms a life…blesses a life… It reminds us that we are the Body of Christ – and that through our response to God’s call we become a real presence – the means through which God touches the life of another – and reminds us that God is giving to us a future filled with promise…

May we all Live Gratefully and Give Generously!

And for those among us who have not made a ‘gift’ as of yet to Project Advance 2015 please consider and bring into prayer our appeal? Every ‘gift’ touches and transforms a life!
