PARISH COLLECTION TIME – The month of February is our parish collection for the Catholic Times weekly newspaper. Donation envelopes for this collection are included in the February collection packet. The rate for the Catholic Times is $17.00 per year. If you have direct withdrawal from your checking/credit card, you can either let the office know to deduct for the Catholic Times or you can put a check in the basket and we will make sure you are credited for the payment. The Catholic Times lets readers receive a Catholic perspective on the world around us: local, national, worldwide, and Vatican news; diocesan, parish, and school stories; articles, regular columns, editorials, and events are delivered right to your home. As an evangelization tool, Bishop Campbell and Monsignor Frecker encourage every Catholic family to receive the Catholic Times. Due to circumstances beyond their control, some families are not able to contribute. If you are in a position to contribute a little more to help offset these costs it will be greatly appreciated. Since the Catholic Times is now being sent only to those who pay for their subscription, if you are not able to pay and would like to receive the paper, please let us know and we will make sure you recieve it.
