Included in this week’s bulletin:
Support the Catholic Home Missions Appeal today!
Right now over 40 % of dioceses in the United States are considered mission territories because they are unable to fund essential pastoral work needed in their communities. Your support funds religious education, seminary formation, lay ministry training, and other programs that build vibrant faith communities right here in the United States. Please be generous. More information can be found at www.usccb.org/home-missions.
The Month of Mary
“Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.” -St. Padre Pio
During the month of May, we take time to honor our mother, Mary. She provides us the greatest example of unwavering faith in God, through her willingness to say “yes.”
May is National Foster Care Month!
Grounded by our belief in Jesus Christ and Catholic teaching, Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) fulfills the commitment of the U.S. Catholic bishops to protect the life and dignity of the human person. The Committee on Migration serves and advocates for refugees, asylees, migrants, unaccompanied children, and victims of human trafficking.
Did you know USCCB MRS provides foster care services to unaccompanied, refugee, and immigrant children? In 2019, USCCB’s Unaccompanied Child (UC) and Unaccompanied Refugee Minor (URM) Network worked to serve and place 552 UCs and URMs from 25 different countries into appropriate care.
Learn how you can become a foster parent to an unaccompanied refugee or immigrant minor!
