Social Justice Ministry Corner
The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change. The Creator does not abandon us; he never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us. Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home. Here I want to recognize, encourage and thank all those striving in countless ways to guarantee the protection of the home which we share. Particular appreciation is owed to those who tirelessly seek to resolve the tragic effects of environmental degradation on the lives of the world’s poorest. Young people demand change. They wonder how anyone can claim to be building a better future without thinking of the environ- mental crisis and the sufferings of the excluded.
Laudato Si’, Pope Francis

Our St. Vincent de Paul Society has an ongoing need for canned chicken, Ham-burger/Tuna/Chicken Helper, canned meals, canned fruits, boxed side dishes, and pancake mix and syrup. We do have plenty of paper bags. Your help is greatly appreciated and goes directly to the many people we help each week.

Our final Bishop’s Ministry Appeal report for this year shows our parish is 140% of our Goal. 432 families participated in this appeal and because of that over $35,000 will come back to our parish next year. On behalf of Fr. Khoi, we offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone that participated in this important cause.

Also, we received word from Catholic Charities that our parish members contributed over $7,500 so far, to this year’s Catholic Charities Collection. This is $1,370 over last year. Congratulations and thank you!

The Catholic Social Services Guild invites you to join us in supporting seniors in Stanislaus County! This fun group was founded in 1975 by Marie Gallo, who saw that there needed to be an organization to support services for seniors in our County. The commitment of the CSSG is to provide funding for the Catholic Charities Homemaker Program, which provides services to allow low-income, frail and at-rick seniors to remain safely in their homes. Services include light housekeeping, meal preparation and other light tasks. Please consider joining this wonderful organization, which provides social and spiritual fellowship to all of its members, as we raise funds and awareness for our seniors. For membership information please call 578-4338.

Pray For Seminarians
If we want more priests, we must pray for Vocations and for our Seminarians, Priests, and Religious every day.

SECURITY
For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

Don’t Be A Victim
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people w ho watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities.
Don’t be a victim!
