"We Are God's Helping Hands"

Hopefully everyone has received the Catholic Ministries Appeal mailing by this time and has a chance to review the materials. Extra copies of the brochure are available in church. The theme for this year’s campaign is “We are God’s Helping Hands.” The CMA affords each of us an opportunity to support the larger Church so that it can meet real needs throughout the Diocese. Your support enables the Church to be responsive and caring. Please be generous in your response. Every gift is needed and important! If it is easier, you can make your gift at www.dor.org—you  can also pay your pledge off in six installments. Pledge forms, which can be put in the collection or mailed directly to the Diocese, are available at the entrances of church. Please pray for the success of our efforts. St. Mary’s goal this year is $14,721 and St. Matthew goal is $48,758.

Two New Meditations!

Two new meditations, "God's Fingerprint" and "Illumine My Darkness," have been uploaded to the website.  You can access there here.
