Olimometer 2.52

THE CARDINAL’S APPEAL IS UNDER WAY 
Registered parishioners have received a letter from the Cardinal sharing his goals for this year’s Appeal. He reminded us of our mission to continue bringing Jesus’ message to the people of our Archdiocese. Therefore, we must ensure that: our ministry groups reach out in Adult Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, Young Adult Outreach, and University Apostolates; that our parishes have enough money to operate, and have priests to serve in them; that we continue our prison and hospital ministry; reach out to families, assist our retired priests and religious; help to keep our grade schools and religious education programs healthy and effective, and our reach out to the poor.

Our goal for this year’s Appeal has been set at $111,000. Please consider a donation to the Appeal. There will be envelopes at the rear of the church for the next few months for your convenience. Thank you.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

ST. JEAN BAPTISTE HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL FUNDRAISER

The 356 young women who attend St. Jean’s are hard-working, ambitious young women. We are proud to announce, once again, that 100% of our graduating seniors are enrolled in college. This exceeds the national rate that stands at 74%.

We encourage all our Parishioners to support our ministry at the High School by attending this event. Tickets cost only $200 each. If you cannot attend, we strongly encourage you to consider making a donation to support the event.

We accept donations throughout the year for our student scholarship fund. Our tuition presently stands at $8,500 but the actual cost of education each student is $14,000. The shortfall between the actual cost of education and the tuition received is covered by a $5,500 grant provided by our student scholarship fund. The purpose of our Annual Fundraiser is to help fund this grant.
