CATHOLIC HOME MISSIONS APPEAL
Next weekend our par ish will be taking up a collection for
the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Many dioceses right here
in the United States do not have enough priests and trained lay
ministers to serve their parishes. These dioceses are known as
home missions. The Catholic Home Missions Appeal supports
these dioceses by funding essential ministries, including seminary education and lay ministry training. Please be generous in
this Appeal and help strengthen the Church at home.

Mercy? It is the promise of the total forgiveness of all sins and
punishment for any soul that would go to Confession and then
receive Jesus in Holy Communion on that very special Feast of
Divine Mercy! To celebrate properly the Feast of Divine Mercy

BAPTISM
RECEIVING THE MOST HOLY EUCHARIST
Garren Nester P. and
Greysen Herbert P.
sons of Mr. & Mrs. Dennis D Guerrero
Baptized on Saturday, April 12, 2014
Holy Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life”,
(Lumen Gentium). As Catholics, we are called by the Church
to a “fully conscious and active participation”, (Sacrosanctum
Concilium), in this great celebration. We bring our whole
selves to Mass, as Jesus commanded, that we love God “with
all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with
all your strength” (Mark 12:30). All our attention and focus is
to the sanctuary of the Church where the Word is proclaimed
and the Sacrifice takes place. When it is time for us to receive
our Lord in the Eucharist, we come towards the table of the
Lord with hearts full of humility, love and reverence. All our
actions should reflect this focus. It is for this reason that we
will no longer distribute Holy Communion at the back of the
Church. Preparations and accommodations have been made
for a more fluid and efficient distribution in front of the altar.
We are sensitive to the possibility that because of physical limitations some people would need to receive at the back of the
Church. Please make the ushers aware if this is the case. Thank
you for your understanding.
THE PASSOVER SEDER
To everything there is a season...thus, our Passover Seder for
2014 has been postponed until 2015. Yes, work has already begun for 2015. A year was needed to revise, revamp, reorganize,
"re" everything, to present to our Parish a beautiful Passover Seder next spring. Thank you for your inquiries and support
for this year. Mark your calendars for March 29, 2015.
THANK YOU!
The Altar Society would like to thank the students of St. Mel
School who pitched in and helped clean the Church. Your help
was greatly appreciated.
