Today is the beginning of the Bishop’s Ministry Appeal. The theme this year is “As One, Being the Heart of Mercy.” Today is the day that I ask you to support the ministries and services of the Stockton Diocese and our parish projects. We have two parish projects this year. The first is the renovation of the girl’s bathroom at St. Anthony’s School, which is used by many parish groups including our Religious Education program. The second, is the funding of the marriage preparation program for those needing their marriage convalidated in the Catholic Church. This process concludes with a large group wedding celebrated by Fr. Jairo.
The Bishop’s Ministry Appeal goal for St. Anthony’s is $147,000. We will easily go over our goal if each family participates this year. We ask that every family consider a gift of $40 a month over the 8 month period of the Appeal or $320. Some will be able to give more and some will give less. Please make out checks to the Bishop’s Ministry Appeal Trust. Those who received a packet from the Diocese (last year’s donors) are asked to use the envelope sent by the Diocese with a special code on it.
Gratefully, Fr. Pat Walker
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2016 is January 31 - February 6. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2016 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
