Catholic Relief Services Nepal Earthquake Collection

A 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal in the late morning of April 25, toppling buildings and homes, causing widespread panic, and claiming thousands of lives. Our church mourns the terrible suffering of our brothers and sisters affected by this powerful earthquake. Please join with the Catholic community across the United States in responding to our suffering brothers and sisters through a special collection for the work of Catholic Relief Services in Nepal. CRS is the official humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the U. S. and is already responding to urgent needs for shelter, water and food in Nepal.

Property Acquisition

On the weekend of April 20th, Fr. Blanda spoke at all Masses regarding the opportunity for St. Peter Parish to acquire two properties on Iberia Street directly across from the rectory and parish offices. The total cost for the acquisition of both of these properties is $210,000. Bishop Jarrell has given us permission to purchase these properties.

Diocesan policy requires that a parish making such a purchase has one-third of the funds available in parish savings. This means that St. Peter Parish must have $70,000 in our savings account. Fr. Blanda joins the Pastoral Council and as well as the Finance Council and Parish Trustees in thanking you for supporting the decision to purchase these properties.

Financial Status to Date: Available funds: $65,667.15
Balance of Funds Needed: $4,332.85

For those of you who would like to donate to the property acquisition, we have included a gift card for your convenience.

Holy Father’s Intentions for May

(Universal) Care for the Suffering – That, rejecting the culture of indifference, we may care for our neighbors who suffer, especially the sick and the poor.

(Evangelization) Openness to Mission – That Mary’s intercession may help Christians in secularized cultures be ready to proclaim Jesus.
