Catholic Charities 2009 starts Feb 21/22

Bishop Tobin has requested that parishes take up the Catholic Charity Fund collection during the season of Lent. One of the major dimensions of the Lenten season is almsgiving. This weekend you will notice a special handout in our bulletin. Our in-pew solicitation will occur at all the masses on February 21/22. Our parish goal remains at $173,000. All of you are aware of the severe economic downturn. It will take a massive effort on all of us to reach this lofty goal. But I trust in the unbelievable generosity of the people of St. Luke’s. I know you will not let me or the poor in our Diocese down.

Fr. Bob Hawkins
