May the healing hand of God rest on these people and guide them in their time of need.
Pray for our deceased priests of the Diocese who celebrate their anniversary of death this week:
Whether you are on the front lines of ministry, in the main office, or providing financial support and prayer, together ALL are winning people to Christ. Just like the kite, if one part fails, all fail.
A sincere “thank you” to the families who stated their intentions and returned their pledge cards.We truly appreciate your gift.
Unlike the other diocesan collections, these cards must be returned to Rockford stating your intentions. To avoid doing a parish mailing, we are asking those who have not responded to please stop at the table in the narthex and fill out your card. We appreciate your cooperation.
If you are new to the parish or have not registered, please use one of the blank envelopes on the table in the Narthex. Father and the finance council asked if possible to give 1% of your income. If not consider a gift of $300.00 or a monthly payment of $30.00 beginning the month of May 2014 through April of 2015. The Diocese has made some changes this year of the different ways to make your pledge electronically. If you need help please contact a member of the finance council. Let us trust in the Holy Spirit to guide our sacrificial gift.

We Need Your Help
If you are handing out bulletins, come to the back when Father starts the closing prayer. This way they will know who you are and will not fill in with other parishioners who are at Mass.
Travelers can call: (410) 676-6000 or access the web site at www.masstimes.org for free information on the location of the nearest Church and times of Masses on weekends and Holy Days.
