VIDEO: View the dramatic changes at Kilauea’s summit

The Catholic University of  America is unique among universities in the United  States – even among Catholic universities. Established by Pope Leo XIII and the U.S. bishops in 1887, it is the national university of the Catholic Church. In addition to alumni who live in your diocese, more than one third of the U.S. bishops and 12,000 priests and religious are Catholic University alumni, including five of the six American Cardinal Archbishops. Through its 12 schools and 23 research centers located in the nation’s capital, every year the University provides an education grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition to almost 7,000 students.
Next weekend, we will be taking up the National Collection for The Catholic University. Your investment will enable the University to continue to support the Church and to advance its work of preparing the next generation of leadership, both religious and lay, of our Church and nation. Thank you for your generosity.

Daily Mass Readings and Reflections


Parish & Diocesan Giving
For most Catholics, opportunities for giving begin in their parish and diocese.  Diocesan and parish stewardship programs should help individuals, families and  communities better understand why, in the context of a total commitment to stewardship that is planned, proportionate, and sacrificial, it is important to set goals for giving.  All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision (in advance from the "first fruits" instead of what is left over after obligations have been met) about what will be given. Many parishes now offer electronic funds transfer options for the weekly offertory in addition to the traditional envelope system to help families and individuals meet their stewardship commitments.

Our Breakfast Team working together with the Salvation Army has served their last breakfast at the Pahoa Community Center shelter.  Many thanks to Jan Malinowski, Paul and Jerry Willett, Gisela McGuire, Kathy, Bill and Sean Tilton, Linda Deehr, Linda Thompson, Roseann Leiner and Lindbergh Marzo for arriving at 6:00am each Wednesday for the past three months.  In the beginning when the shelters were packed full of families and children, more than 140 meals were prepared and served.  Thanks again for your dedication to serve members of our Pahoa community.
