Annual Ministries Appeal
The Annual Ministries Appeal is still very much in pro- gress for this year. Many aspects of the operation of the Diocese of Monterey have no direct connection to the parishes. The Bishop coordinates a number of offices and ministries that are available to all the parishes and schools of the Diocese. This special appeal addresses these needed activities of any diocese. The registered parishioners have received information about the appeal in the mail. For those who haven’t received the brochure and response envelope, these are available in the rear of the church. We encourage ALL parishioners to participate as each one is able to par- ticipate. PLEASE MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE DIOCESE OF MONTEREY AND RETURN ALL RESPONSE ENVELOPES TO THE PARISH OFFICE.
Parish Goal $27,300
Amount Pledged $23,490
Amount Paid $21,305
Families Participating 81

Second Collection—Next Weekend
The annual collection for the support of the seminarians of the Diocese of Monterey is next weekend. The diocese continues to be blessed with fine vocations. This coming spring there are four seminarians to be ordained diocesan priests for the Dio- cese of Monterey. Above all, remember to pray for the semi- narians—both Franciscan and local diocesan.
Pilgrimage to Europe
Father John Farao of our local Franciscan community will lead a pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes, Saint James in Spain and Paris. This spiritual journey is being coordinated by Adoration Tours. Leave a message of interest at 800-580-7040 and speak with Adeline. The dates are April 19th to May 1st next year. Be patient for a return call, since the office staff is currently touring.
Mass Intentions 2017
Especially Saturday Night and Sunday
Requests for Mass intentions to be said in our church has continued to be at a high level. We cannot accommodate everyone’s requests. The deadline for requests is September 30th.
We will continue to follow the prior years’ practices so that more families will have a chance to place intentions on the weekend. The following policies continue to apply for the weekends:
1. Each extended family will have the opportunity to request up to four intentions per calendar year at a specific weekend Mass time (e.g., 10:30 a.m. Sunday);
2. Each extended family may request up to eight (8) intentions per calendar year distributed among the various times of the Saturday night and Sunday Masses;
3. Each extended family will be asked to distribute the inten- tions throughout the year, so that usually no more than one intention occurs each month.
