Thank you, Father Andrew Semler, Pastor
This week, there will be a 2nd collection for the St. Vincent De Paul Society here at St. Anthony’s. This organization at our parish has already helped families in need. They have provided financial assistance for rent, utilities, water, provided furniture, school supplies, medical referrals, and emergency housing. This takes a lot of commitment and a lot of money. Please be generous.
Our parish, once a year on Good Friday, is called on to support Christians in the Holy Land. Many Christians in the Holy Land
depend on the collection for their lives.
As a pontifical collection requested by Pope Francis, the annual Good Friday Collection offers a direct link for parishioners to be
witnesses of peace and to help protect the Holy Places. When you donate on Good Friday, you are supporting Christians in the
Holy Land. Franciscans and others in the Holy Land are housing and feeding the poor, providing religious formation and education, maintaining shrines and parishes, and conducting pastoral ministry. For more information, visit www.MyFranciscan.org. The Good Friday Collection is requested by the Holy Father. Please be as generous as your abundance allows.
Una vez al año, en Viernes Santo, nuestra parroquia es llamada a apoyar a la Cristianos en Tierra Santa. Las vidas de muchos
Cristianos en Tierra Santa dependen de nuestras donaciones.
Como una recaudacion pontifical pedida por El Papa Francisco, la recaudacion anual de Viernes Santo ofrece la oportunidad a
los parroquianos a presenciar paz y de ayudar a proteger los locales sagrados. Cuando usted haga su donacion en Viernes
Santo, usted estara apoyando a la Cristiandad en Tierra Santa. Franciscanos y otros en Tierra Santa estan albergando y alimentando a los pobres, proveyendo informacion y educacion, manteniendo los altares y las parroquias, y ofreciendo servicios pastorales. Para mas informacion, visite www.myfranciscan.org. La recaudacion de Viernes Santo es pedida por el Santo Padre. Favor de ser lo mas generoso posible
