Parish Goal: $66,340
Donor Participation Goal: 184 Donors
Pledges to Date: 245 / Total Amount: $48,834 / 74% of Goal
Each year, at this time, we are encouraged to consider the needs of our Church and of the Diocese as one family in Christ.
Through the Annual Catholic Appeal, we are asked to make a commitment to support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries, that provide services which no one parish could provide on its own. It is our call to reach beyond the boundaries of our parish, and the confines of our own personal sphere, to help build up our faith community and uplift our brethren.
Just as we are one in the Body of Christ, we must remember that we are one with other parishes.
Todos los años en esta época la Campaña Católica Anual exhorta a los fieles a considerar como familia unida en Cristo las necesidades de nuestra Iglesia y de la Diócesis.
La Campaña nos invita a comprometernos a apoyar la labor de los programas y ministerios diocesanos dedicados a brindar servicios que ninguna parroquia por sí sola podría brindar. Debemos responder al llamado a tender la mano al prójimo más allá de los límites de nuestra parroquia y de los confines de nuestra esfera personal, para ayudar a edificar nuestra comunidad de fe y elevar a nuestros hermanos en Cristo.
Así como somos uno unidos en el Cuerpo de Cristo, debemos recordar que somos uno unidos con las demás parroquias.

Children & Worship Sunday Pre-school Classes
Do you have a 3 or 4 year old child? Is it your desire that they learn about our Catholic Faith, Mass and Prayers? We have developed our Children and Worship Sunday Pre-school program as a support for parents in educating their three and four year old children (and pre-K students) about Catholic faith and values, the Mass and God’s love. Please watch the bulletin for our Registration Dates.
Classes will be held during the Sunday 10:00 a.m. Mass beginning soon.
As parishioners, please pray for our students and teachers, and help with informing others about our Children and Worship program. For those families who are financially able, please prayerfully consider sponsoring a student with a donation of $30 or more. This allows us to continue to cover our program costs and offer this program at this lower tuition. For more information, please contact the Religious Education Office at 520-568-4605.
R.C.I.A. - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The R.C.I.A. process is held on Monday evenings beginning in the month of August. Please contact the parish office at 520-568-4605 and leave your name and phone number if you would like more information.
Do You Know Someone Who Wants to be Catholic?
Do you know someone in your family, at your workplace or school who might be thinking about becoming Catholic? Have you talked to someone recently or in the past who showed an interest in the Catholic faith? Do you know someone who seems to be missing something in their lives? Maybe you are being called by God to lead them to know the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the process by which men and women who think and feel they hear a call from God, are lead to conversion and belief in the Lord. It is a gradual process during which the teachings of the Gospel are studied and pondered, the requirements of the Christian life are explained and a call to faith is fostered. It is above all an invitation by God to the person to become His son or daughter . . . to be born again through baptism and/or fully initiated through Confirmation and Holy Communion.

31 Club for Priestly Vocations
Our Lady of Grace Parish is seeking to focus and increase awareness for the need for religious vocations and to pray for that grace. Because of our belief in the power of prayer, one of the suggestions to encourage more vocations was to form a "31 Club" from the members of our parish.
What is the 31 Club?
As a member of the 31 Club you would agree to one extra Mass each month. You would offer this Mass:
- 1) For priests and religious who have served our parish in the past
- 2) For those serving now
- 3) To ask the Lord to call future vocations from this parish family
- 4) To pray for seminarians who are currently studying and preparing for the priesthood
To make it easier to make your commitment, you are asked to choose a specific day (for example, the second Tuesday of the month) or a date (perhaps the sixth of each month) to attend Mass. If you miss your chosen day or date, the nearest convenient day is fine. The Mass does not have to be offered here at our parish, any Catholic church will do. We are looking for people to commitment to the "31 Club" for one year beginning this March 2017.
There is a calendar in the north vestibule of our church. If you are able to make this commitment please sign up. Welcome to the 31 Club!
