A Message from Father Bernie

Dear Friends,

This week, the priests of our diocese will be gathering at New Harmony, IN for a Priest Convocation.  The retreat will begin Monday afternoon and conclude Thursday afternoon.  Note that there will be no Mass celebrated here Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  Please keep our priests in prayer next week. 

As of this writing (Monday, October 14th) we have received 409 responses to the Catholic Parishes Campaign.  Toward our goal of $291,581 we now have pledges of $171,182.  I am most grateful to those who have pledged thus far.  Those pledges have averaged just over $400 per household.  We are still $120,399 short of our goal.  I pray that all of our families will contribute to the Catholic Parishes Campaign.  Working together, this is goal is attainable.  I hope to hear from you soon.  It would be great to wrap up the campaign by the end of October.

Christ’s peace,

Fr. Bernie Etienne
