As our Blessed Mother brings us to her Son, Jesus, it is our task also to bring others to the Lord. Is there someone you can invite to explore the Roman Catholic faith - someone unbaptized, or baptized in a non-Catholic Christian tradition? Perhaps you know a Catholic adult who has not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation? For more information, please leave a message for John and Mimi Timko at the Parish Center, 753-3359.
The Diocese of Phoenix is undertaking a comprehensive restructuring process so that its civil organizational structure matches the canonical organizational structure that is already in place. To help explain the process, the Diocese is launching a separate website to provide basic information On the restructuring and to report on the progress of the process until the transition is completed later this year. The Diocese encourages all who are interested to check this website on a regular basis as it will be updated as further details become available. The website is: http://www.diocesephoenix.org/inc/
