Utilities assistance - 14 families
Especially during the winter months, gas cards are needed for those who rely on their vehicle for housing. If you are looking for an easy way to give back, Fred Meyer gas cards ($20 or $25) are always in demand. Cards can be dropped off at the parish office or placed in the collection basket at Mass. Thank you!
Model of Mercy
Blessed Pauline Jaricot
On January 9, for the first time, we marked the feast day of Blessed Pauline Jaricot, who was beatified in May 2022.
By asking her friends to join her in praying for the Church in far-flung places daily, and asking them to donate a penny each week, this French laywoman planted the seeds for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. What began as a group of friends praying for the Church in mission territories is today the engine that gives spiritual and financial support to 1,200 dioceses worldwide.
Her faith forever changed the lives of millions, so the Society for the Propagation of the Faith decided to honor her with a movie specially dedicated to her life.
