LISTEN TO FATHER DARVIN WINTERS' HOMILY ON JUNE 18, 2017
2nd COLLECTION – JUNE 24/25 DIOCESE OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI
Fr. Lincoln Dall, Pastor of St. James Catholic Church in Tupelo, Mississippi will be with us next weekend to appeal for help for the Diocese of Jackson, the largest diocese east of the Mississippi River. This is the 1st of our two summer mission appeals. The Catholic population in the Diocese is 50,000. The Diocese has 9 counties without a resident priest. An appeal came recently to hire a sister for one of these priestless counties. The Diocese had to say “We’re sorry. There is not enough money.” And so, that leaves another county without Catholic presence of any kind.
Won’t you help us to make the church present in the Diocese of Jackson, which is less than 3% Catholic?

INDIANA STATE CREEDIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Race is on! The word is out. The competition has increased. More people are donating to the Indiana State Tax Credit Scholarship Program and taking advantage of this unique tax opportunity. Your gift through the Institute of Quality Education (IQE) will help our students afford a high quality, Catholic education. IQE will begin accepting donations for tax credit scholarships on July 1, 2017. The cap for the 2017-18 fiscal year has been raised to $12.5 million, but these credits are expected to run out early. Don’t be left at the starting line! Donate early to take advantage of the 50% state tax credit opportunity. Last year, Saint Lawrence distributed $20,750 in Tax Credit Scholarships to our students. Help us make this a reality again in 2017!
