DATE CHANGE FOR FIRST FRIDAY ADORATION

First Friday Adoration HAS NEW HOURS. Adoration will open immediately following the 7:00am Mass and close at 1:30pm. Lately we have had trouble getting all of the time slots filled and the Eucharist has been left alone. Adoration for this month is on October 11th. Signup sheet is on the bulletin board.

Capital Campaign has been raising funds in the parishes throughout the Archdiocese of San Antonio with a goal of $60 Million to renovate existing structures, expand facilities for our growing community, and to purchase and build new locations for parishes, schools and campus ministry. To date, we have received over $54 Million in generous pledges and gifts! THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to the campaign! We are very close and hope to reach our goal before the end of this year: Will you help us Finish Well by making your pledge and adding your contribution to the total?
