Hi all,

A year ago the Outreach Committee for our pastoral region postponed an immigration conversation because on the onset of the Corona virus pandemic. With everyone more comfortable with zoom, we are rescheduling our presentation as a zoom event with Attorney Zac Sanders of Catholic Charities for Saturday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to noon. More details to come!

Here’s some news from the archdiocese:

RECEIVE PLENARY INDULGENCE DURING THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH – Archbishop Schnurr has designated the following parishes to serve as temporary shrines during the Year of St. Joseph: St. Joseph, North Bend; St. Joseph, Dayton; and St. Joseph, Wapakoneta. A pious visit to one of these churches during this holy year is an occasion for receiving a plenary indulgence for those who recite an Our Father and the Creed, along with fulfillment of the other requirements for obtaining an indulgence (prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father, sacramental confession, and reception of Holy Communion). Please visit the parishes’ websites to see church visiting hours and any possible devotional activities: www.stjosephnorthbend.com; www.stjosephdayton.org; www.petersburgparishes.org (Wapakoneta).
