Annual Ministries Appeal
The Annual Ministries Appeal is still very much in progress 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 participate. PLEASE MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE DIOCESE OF MONTEREY AND RETURN ALL RESPONSE ENVELOPES TO THE PARISH OFFICE.
Parish Goal $27,500
Amount Pledged $24,902
Amount Paid $19,767
Families Participating 84
Food for the Needy
Many of our parishioners may not know or remember that there are plastic receptacles in the lower part of the hutch in the entryway of the church. If you have an extra nonperishable food item that you can bring and place in the receptacle, please do so. The food is taken to the Five Cities’ Christian Women’s food center on Monday mornings.
Volunteers are needed to arrive early on Sunday to prepare the coffee and the other items that are needed after the Sunday morning Masses. If anyone can take one Sunday a month or be on call in the event of emergency that would be very helpful. Please call Father Victor if you are able to help.

Second Collection Next Weekend—Catholic Communications and Catholic University
The Diocese of Monterey is endeavoring to reduce the number of second collections by combining the beneficiaries. Next week the collection will be for Catholic Communications and for the Catholic University of America. The envelope is called Catholic Communications, but will be meant for both! Your generosity is truly appreciated.
