There are pledge envelopes available on the tables at the doors of the church. You may return the completed form to the Parish office or mail it directly to the Office of Parish Stewardship and Development or return it in the regular Sunday collection. You can also give securely online at diocesecc.org.  Again, thank you for being a good steward of the gifts God has given you.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I have been taking it easy since my surgery. While I have been doing a little more each day in my office and staying pretty close to the parish grounds (After all, I can’t drive and have a hard time asking people to take me somewhere except to the doctors and to have blood work.), I thank the Lord for giving me this time to be alone with Him.

Being loopy demands a lot of attention from those who are taking care of you. I don’t remember, but I am sure that I was a hand full. Instead of finding crumply nurses. I found smiley ones. As they were asking me questions, I remember my friend, Dr. John Lopez, DC, who was with me, saying, “Monsignor! You have to be...
