U.S. CATHOLIC BISHOPS CALL FOR ANOTHER
FORTNIGHT FOR FREEDOM ON JUNE 21 TO JULY 4
In December, when the U.S. Catholic Bishops announced the Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty (www.usccb.org/life-marriage-liberty), they also announced a second Fortnight for Freedom. As before, the Fortnight will take place again from June 21 (the vigil of the feasts of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher) to July 4 (Independence Day). Archbishop William Lori, Chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, states that there are three reasons why this year’s Fortnight is so important:
• First, the Supreme Court’s rulings on marriage redefinition, which could have grave implications for religious freedom, will almost certainly be issued during the Fortnight.
• Second, by the time of the Fortnight, the effective date of the HHS mandate – August 1, 2013 – will be scarcely a month away, and the Administration’s decision on the shape of the final rule will likely be imminent. And unfortunately, as we now know after extensive study and analysis of the latest proposal, we are still far from receiving the relief we need through the regulatory process. So it will be important to keep the pressure on.
• Third, the success of a second Fortnight is essential to perpetuating a new movement for life, marriage, and religious liberty, highlighting the full range of ongoing religious freedom issues, here and abroad, and in so many other areas of law, such as immigration, adoption, and disaster relief. Similarly, it is important to show that it is not tied to any election year, but to the broader principle of religious freedom. USCCB Fortnight resources are now available at www.Fortnight4Freedom.org. Check back often, as this site will continue to be updated as more materials become available.

As of mid-June we have raised $37,500.00 toward our Parish goal of $52,860.00 which represents 71% of our total. If you have not pledged to this campaign yet please prayerfully consider your pledge. Thank you to everyone that has made their pledge.
4-S CLUB GOLF OUTING-SEPTEMBER 22, 2013
Since 2006 the 4S Club Golf Outing Committee has raised over $87,000 toward the Saint Mary School Tuition Assistance Fund. We continue this mission as we plan for our 8th annual 4S Club Robert R. Dolder, Sr. and Sharon Wentzel Golf Classic. In addition to raising funds for tuition assistance this event honors the late Robert Dolder Sr. and Sharon Wentzel who began this effort. We welcome you to participate in this project as part of our committee, as a volunteer, or as a sponsor. To quote our Honorary ‘Chairnun’, Sr. Regina Snyder: “The 4-S Club invites you to participate in our 2013 Annual Golf Outing to support the only Catholic school on the south-side of Columbus. We need your support to continue to be viable.”

FIFTH SUNDAY – JUNE 30TH
We do not have a regular rotation for liturgical ministers for 5th Sundays; therefore there will be a sign up sheet at the rear of Church for altar servers, lectors and Eucharistic ministers. Please volunteer to server in one of these capacities for these weekend Masses.
Love even the most abandoned: love whatever faith in Christ remains in them: if they have lost this, love their virtues; if these have gone, love the holy likeness they bear, love the blood of Christ through which you trust they are redeemed.
—St. Ignatius of Loyola
