Practicing the Good News
Dear San Isidro Family:
We joyfully inform you that God has blessed us abundantly. At the beginning of our Fiscal Year 2012-2013, San Isidro was forgiven $555,055 from the debt owed to the Archdiocese. Our Archbishop Thomas Wenski reviewed the financial burden this was on our Parish and proposed a fresh start. We have witnessed the power of practicing the Gospel*! Ever since our parochial debt was forgiven, we have been striving to keep up with our dues from the Archdiocese.
But wait, the news gets better: Thanks to your generous contributions for the ABCD campaigns, Archbishop Wenski allocated $4 million to help 8 of the most distressed parishes with great debt. We were blessed to have been chosen among the parishes he helped! Out of the $4 million, he gave $350,000 towards San Isidro Church’s debt. Dear family in Christ, with this amount we settled our mortgage and paid part of another loan! The Parish is finally ours! Thanks Be To God!
We went through an intense time of adversity, and with the help of God we managed to come through. Despite difficult economic times we all went through, we have continued to care for our Church grounds. Therefore, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for being such loyal and generous members and stewards to our Parish. God has seen the generosity of your hearts and blessed our community, thanks to you.
Isidore died in 1130. Forty years after Isidro's death, his body was transferred from the cemetery to the church of St. Andrew. He is said to have appeared to Alfonso of Castile, and to have shown him the hidden path by which he surprised the Moors and gained the victory of Las Nevas de Tolosa, in 1212. When King Philip III of Spain was cured of a deadly disease by touching the relics of the saint, the king replaced the old reliquary by a costly silver one. He was canonized by Gregory XV, along with Sts. Ignatius, Francis Xavier, Teresa, and Philip Neri, on 12 March, 1622. St. Isidro is widely venerated as the patron of peasants and day-laborers. The cities of Madrid, Leon, Saragossa, and Seville also, honor him as their patron. His feast is celebrated on May15 . His saintly wife survived Isidro for several years.
Above you will see our current financial standing.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Abel Barajas and San Isidro Staff

The Pro-Life Corner
We know that prayer is a powerful weapon. In just over a month from now, the bishops of the United States are sponsoring another Fortnight for Freedom of prayer and fasting to rebuild our culture and protect religious freedom.
Though the First Amendment is still part of our Constitution, we face serious challenges to religious freedom in the United States, including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious organizations like Human Life International to comply with the HHS contraception/abortifacient/sterilization mandate. Potential Supreme Court rulings this June could redefine marriage, causing religious freedom issues for Catholic adoption agencies and other organizations, as we've already seen in some states.
Our country needs people of prayer, but we also need people of
Please call the U.S. Capitol switchboard today at 202-224-3121 and ask your representatives to enact legislation protecting religious freedom.
