February 14, Valentine’s Day, is Commitment Sunday for our 2021 Stewardship Renewal process. That may be one of the reasons the Stewardship Committee adopted a rather obvious as well as fitting tagline: Stewardship, a gift of the heart. We ask you to submit your form by February 14 or at your earliest convenience.
The very first question asks you to share what is on your heart for our parish family as we go forward. We look forward to hearing from you.
Begins February 24, but it is not too late to join. We hope you will join us on our next scripture study journey as we read and discuss the first half of The Gospel According to Matthew. The program will begin on Wednesday, February 24th from 7:00–8:30 PM and will run for five Wednesdays. We will once again use the video conferencing program Zoom, a free program that runs on all desktop computers and hand held devices. Click here to order the $16.95 online lesson material. To register for class, call the parish office, 582-2971 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and give your name, phone number, and e-mail address so you can be contacted with the sign-on information for classes.
Recently the Cathedral wired $6,000 to Cathedral St Louis, our Sister Parish in Jeremie, Haiti. Funds used for the lunch program at St Therese School. Here is the thank you email Jack Lydon received, on January 25, 2021.
Subject: Thank you of the St Therese School for the lunch Program
Mr Jack Lydon,
I have a great pleasure to answer your mail. It is up to me to thank you for this help so precious in these difficult times that the world is going through. In Haiti, the socio-political and economic situation is very hard for the citizens, especially for the children. The latter are often victims of kidnappings by armed individuals. Their release depends on the ability of their parents and relatives to pay exorbitant ransoms. Children like adults live in fear. We have the feeling of being handed over to the bandits. Thus, keeping children in school and feeding them on site is a great contribution to parents. Thank you very much for the lunch Program of St. Therese School.
As for the evolution of Covid-19 for the parishioners of St Louis Cathedral in Jeremie, the situation remains stable. There are no known cases of people in the parish suffering from the Covid-19.
I wish all the parishioners of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, the Pastor, and your family my best wishes for the health in the New Year! May Our Lady of the Assumption keep you under her mantle of grace! God bless you.
