Light of the World Retreat

The Light of the World retreats are coming up soon. Light of the World is an opportunity for you to learn how to grow closer to God and grow in your faith.  In February we had many people attend and they all speak very highly of the experience they had.

The retreats start at 6 Pm on Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday. We have a closing for the Retreat on Monday evening after the retreat weekend. You will go home each evening at about 8 PM. We will have good food, great talks about faith and some beautiful moments with God.

We Care Packages 2017

We Care Packages is my favorite inter-generational service project. Thanks to Daughters of Isabella for supporting us with their cookie baking expertise for the past 12 years! In 2.5 hours we bake cookies, eat pizza and salad, make cards, pack shoe boxes with goodies, and wrap and decorate our packages to send to college youth and military away from our parish. This year we mailed 49 packages (our largest ever). Not only does this show God's love to our youth but also to those in our community. One kind lady at the post office offered $20 today to help pay for mailing them. It takes the a little over an hour in the post office to check them in and mail them out. And then, as they are reaching their destination it not only touches the youth we sent it to but also their roommates and people in their Faith Community. What a beautiful opportunity to spread God's Joy around!

V Encuentro

Goal: The main goal of the V Encuentro is to discern ways in which the Church in the United States can better respond to the Hispanic/Latino presence, and to strengthen the ways in which Hispanics/ Latinos respond to the call to the New Evangelization as missionary disciples serving the entire Church.

Meta: La meta general del V Encuentro es discernir maneras en las que la Iglesia en los Estados Unidos pueda responder mejor a la presencia de los hispanos/ latinos, y potenciar a los hispanos/ latinos para que respondan como discípulos misioneros al llamado a la Nueva Evangelización, sirviendo a toda la Iglesia.

Help CRS Respond to Emergencies

September 20, 2017

Dear Friends,

On Tuesday, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck south of Mexico City, killing at least 200 people, with more casualties expected as rescue efforts continue. The quake struck less than 2 weeks after an 8.1 earthquake hit Oaxaca, Mexico, killing dozens of people and damaging thousands of homes. Once again, we ask for your prayers and support as rescue efforts continue and our partners on the ground begin to recover and rebuild.  

We also invite you to pray for those being impacted by Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm which is currently barreling across many of the same Caribbean islands already devastated by Hurricane Irma. Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico, where Catholic Charities, our sister agency, is responding. As the North American members of the worldwide Caritas federation, CRS and Catholic Charities will continue to respond to these disasters. Catholic Charities provides relief and support to people in the United States and U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico, while CRS works with its Church partners on the ground to respond to these emergencies overseas. 

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, president of the USCCB, has invited the bishops to take an emergency collection the weekend of September 23-24 on behalf of those devastated in parts of the Caribbean and southeastern United States by Hurricane Irma. People can also donate directly to CRS’ and Catholic Charities’ hurricane relief efforts. 

Please remember our aid workers, who are working around the clock in many places around the world to respond to disasters like these. And, as always, on behalf of the CRS family, I ask God to bless you and keep you and your family safe from harm.


Joan Rosenhauer
Executive Vice President
