Believing that we cannot proclaim a gospel we do not live, we dedicate our activities to promoting the welfare of those in need of comfort, shelter and food and, through education and action, to working for justice and peace.
Dear Lord, you are the light that brings us together. We thank you for the gifts that you have given each of us to do your work. Help us to remember our blessings and to recognize the needs of your people. Grant that our minds and hearts are open to your will and give us the wisdom to know how we can serve you. In the spirit of St. Clare, may we respond with charity and love. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Join us the second Tuesday of each month, from 7:30-9 p.m. in the Nursery. Contact Marla at 281-480-1231 or Roberta at 281-486-9673 for information.
Projects & Events, April – June:
The annual Lenten Box Project will end in April. This project helps clients of Casa Juan Diego, a local Catholic shelter. Thank you for contributing items including toiletries, underwear, stationery and infant goods. Donations will be delivered after Easter. For more information, contact Gordon at 281-461-6982.
In the Hospitalized Veterans Project, occurring in late April and May, we collect items for veterans who receive in- and out-patient treatment at the Houston VA Hospital. Lists of useful items will be distributed to parishioners after all masses the weekend of April 29-30. Item lists also will be available on the CIA Bulletin Board. Donations should be brought during May to collection boxes located next to CIA’s food pantry box in the hallway to the Conference Center. Questions? Contact Veronica at 281-507-8594.
