COLLECTION TOTALS - November 4, 2007

 First Collection Total - $ 5,389.93
Second Collection Total - $ 1,394.00 (CCD Program)


Our Second Collection this Sunday is for our Parish Improvement Fund. Our Second Collection next Sunday is for The Campaign for Human Development. .

Thank you for your continued support!


We pray for all the sick in our parish family, especially:
Jack Devine, John Duran, Dawn Hassinger, and Lory Manzano.

May God bless them .


We pray for the soul of Dolton Delahoussaye who died on November 5th. May the perpetual light shine upon him.

We are called to be good stewards of our personal vocations. St. Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians is therefore ours, too—“that our God may make us worthy of his calling and powerfully bring to fulfillment every good purpose and every effort of faith.”
