April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Tips for Protecting Children and the Vulnerable:
  • People can be taught to identify grooming behavior. Grooming behaviors are the actions which abusers take to project the image that they are kind, generous, caring people, while their intent is to lure a minor into an inappropriate relationship. Offenders can be patient and may groom their victim, his or her family, or community for years.
  • There are behavior warning signs of inappropriate behavior. Some abusers isolate a potential victim by giving him or her undue attention or lavish gifts, others allow young people to participate in activities which their parents or guardians would not approve, such as watching pornography, drinking alcohol, using drugs, and excessive toughing, such as wrestling and tickling.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Here in the United States there is a great need for evangelization and sharing the message of Christ and the beauty of the Church. The Church at home needs to be strengthened and fortified. Soon, as an archdiocese, we will take up the Catholic Home Missions Appeal (CHMA), which supports the neediest dioceses in the United States. This appeal makes the basic faith programs possible and shares the gospel message with our brothers and sisters in dioceses where Church communities are scattered and struggling.

Vocation Cup

We thank the following families for hosting the Vocation Cup this past week:

The Garcia-Camacho Family
The Garcia Family

The Vocation Blessing Cup is a wonderful instrument of prayer and devotion for our parish families. The Cup reminds each host family that it is their responsibility to pray for and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life. A family is asked to host the Vocation Cup for one week. It will travel from home to home as a sign of our total parish commitment to praying for vocations.

Seeking Volunteers for the Vocation Cup

Bringing home the vocation cup is a wonderful opportunity to unite any family in prayer, bringing them closer to God and to each other while praying for vocations.

If you and your family would like to volunteer to take home the vocation cup for one week, please fill out the information below and turn it into the rectory office or drop it in the offertory basket.

Thank you for your support!
