Word of God Sunday!

Our Church has a new solemnity! It is Word of God Sunday commemorating the importance of the Word of God in our Church. This year it will be June 9, and in years following it will always be the Sunday after Corpus Christi Sunday. The liturgical color is white. More information will be sent as we get closer.

Clergy Pension Fund - Honor Your Father on Father's Day!

A reminder that there are several ways to support the Clergy Pension Fund of our Church. One way is by participating in the Honor Your Father on Father's Day project. You can submit the names of loved ones with a donation, to be published in God's Field. A Second way is to organize a campaign in your parish to raise awareness of this important fund. You can have a Kick Off on Father's Day, and then keep it going until the end of July, or as long as you like. A third way is to remember the Clergy Pension Fund in your long term financial planning. We hope these ideas are helpful, and we Thank You for your thoughtfulness and generosity!

National Youth Convo - There is still time to register!

Materials have been sent to all parishes electronically for the upcoming National Youth Convocation to be held in Erie, PA. Plans should already be underway for sending in the registration forms and arranging transportation. If you need any help or assistance, please contact us!

Diocesan Synod

A reminder that our diocesan Synod will be held October 15 and 16 at All Saints Cathedral in Chicago. We are planning an efficient and affordable Synod for the participants, where it will be possible to stay just one night at a hotel, for those who wish. The theme for this year’s Synod is “Built on the Rock.” More information and registration materials will be forthcoming.

Thank you for all you do for your parish and our Church!
