Announcements (June 29, 2008)

1. Our second collection is for Peter’s Pence. The Peter’s Pence Collection enables the Holy Father to respond with immediate emergency assistance to the most disadvantaged throughout the world – those who suffer as a result of war, oppression, and natural disasters. More than 1 billion Catholics worldwide participate in the Collection as an active expression of Christ’s love for the poor. More than 98 cents of every dollar contributed goes to the pope’s spiritual and charitable works. Please join Catholics throughout the world, in supporting the works of Pope Benedict XVI.

2. This weekend Pope Benedict has inaugurated the “Year of St. Paul.” Please pick up a copy of the Novena in Honor of St. Paul – and pray it this week in your home.

3. Summer is upon us, and it is typical that our donations take a drop during this time of year. To keep this from happening, before leaving on that well-deserved vacation, please consider making your Stewardship contribution by using our new on-line donation program. Simply go to our web-site and click on “Support Holy Family” and you can make a donation using your credit card. You may also make donations for your Capital Campaign pledge, School Annual Fund, Randy Terlicker Endowment and the Mary Bloom Center. Please help Holy Family stay in the black this summer. For more information and our web-site address, please see the bulletin.

4. This week we welcome Fr. Armando Red. He will celebrate the Tuesday morning Mass and, together with Fr. Bloom, will be available for confessions this Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. The bulletin has more information about Fr. Red.

5. Please come over the hall after Mass for a Farewell Celebration for Fr. Ramon. After the 11 a.m. Mass we will have a potluck in the parish hall.

6. The bulletin contains information about a newly formed Boys Group, Volunteers Most Needed, Holy Family participation in White Center Jubilee Days, Youth Summer Camps, Stewardship Results and much more. Please be sure to take home a bulletin and read it carefully.
