Announcements (March 5, 2006)

1. Our two-bit collection is for Black and Indian Missions. This collections provides yearly grants to promote evangelization and catechesis among Native American and Black Americans, with an emphasis on serving economically challenged areas within dioceses.

2. Next Sunday morning our Knights of Columbus invite you to join them for a delicious pancake, French toast and sausage breakfast. For the low cost of $4 you will support the Knights in their work. Proceeds from this Sunday’s breakfast will go toward the Knights of Columbus Scholarship for a Holy Family student.

3. Also, as you will notice in the bulletin, the Knights are asking you to save your pennies for the “Pennies from Heavens” program. This is a statewide fund which provides long-term support for seminarians.

At the entrances you will find envelopes and pledge sheets to support this Walk.
