Dear Brother and Sisters in Christ,
Soon our archdiocese will take up a collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). Last year, Pope Francis encouraged us, "to engage in constructive form of communication that reject prejudice towards others and foster a culture of encounter" (World Communications Day Message, 2017). By generously supporting this collection, you are spreading the Gospel and helping others encounter Christ every day.
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you." When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained."
All are sent
Fifty days after Easter Sunday we celebrate the fulfillment of all God’s promises in the feast of Pentecost, a feast that has sometimes been called the birthday of the church. One last time we are reminded that we Christians have received the Holy Spirit, not for our own benefit, but to enable us to follow our Christian vocation.
The centerpiece of the scriptures for Pentecost is the account in Acts of the Apostles of the sending of the Holy Spirit to the disciples. The other readings for this Sunday help us to understand what it means to live out our Christian vocation. Paul’s letter shows us the gifts and fruits that the Holy Spirit gives to us. John’s Gospel reminds us that Jesus has sent all his disciples to share his forgiveness and peace, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

- 2nd Collection: $1,855.00

The second collection is dedicated to the maintenance of the Church building.
Support the Catholic Communication Campaign
The Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) is a marvelous way to share the gospel message of God's mercy and love. Pope Francis asked us last year, "to offer the people of our time storylines that are, at heart, 'good news.'" By supporting this collection, you help to spread the Good News to people around the country and around the world. Your gift also make a local impact because half of your donation stays in your diocese to support local communications projects.
O, Lord God of hosts, O God of our salvation, O God who alone workest wonders, do thou now look down with mercy and compassion on thy humble servants and out of love for mankind hearken and have mercy on us. Look with mercy, we pray thee, O Lord, on those of our sons and daughters who now serve in our Armed Forces, and who in obedience to their superiors have for our sakes placed themselves in harm’s way. Grant that those who request the protection of thy right hand may be overpowered by no adverse force, and may the invited defense of thy mighty power shield thy faithful sons and daughters. Watch over them, O Lord, and bring them back safely to those who love them. Grant courage and steadfast faith to them and to those who long for their return. Bring a quick and bloodless end to these conflicts and spare the lives of the innocent. Grant no increase to the numbers of widows and orphans and relieve the privations of the bereaved and wounded, whether wounded in body or in soul. Restore peace in our day, O Lord, that thy truth may go forth unhindered, for Thou, O Lord, art the Prince of Peace and art ever-glorified with thine unoriginated Father and the all-holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-6
All of us are blessed, regardless of our own individual circumstances; God has given each of us many gifts. How we use those gifts is our offering back to God. In order for God’s plan to work, each must do what we are called to do and the good thing is that we are not all called to do the same thing!
