The Catholic Times campaign will kick off the weekend of February 12-13, 2011. Your donation helps our parish to provide Catholic Times to you and many of our parishioners.  Donation envelopes for this collection are included in your January/February collection packet.  For a minimum donation of ONLY $17.00 per year (parish rate), 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 encourages every Catholic family to receive the Catholic Times.  Look for your envelope and sign up for, or continue receiving, the newspaper of our diocese, the Catholic Times.  If you are on “electronic” donation, you can still receive Catholic Times – simply place your donation in an envelope marked “Catholic Times” and your Name and drop it in the Sunday collection basket during February.
