Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools
Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans, “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.”
Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. They have carried what they have learned and witnessed with them; however, many have lost touch with our local Catholic school communities. It is time for these people to reconnect with Catholic schools and give back.
It is with this recognition in mind that Saint Ann Catholic School leased to participate in Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. Scheduled for January 30, 2018, 9 AM EST to January 31, 2018 9 AM EST, this is a time for individuals to give to their local Catholic school. Visit www.NCEA.org/csw/manygifts to find the giving page link and search for Saint Ann Catholic School. Many Gifts, One Nation is made possible by NCEA and Facts Management.
|The parish has a FREE gift for every member of your family, a subscription to FORMED! This website (FORMED.org) has Catholic content in English and Spanish for all ages, including books, full-length films, recorded talks, and beautiful features from Bishop Robert Barron (whose material we have used in our Adult Religious Enrichment group!). There is also a FORMED app, downloadable for free from the App Store. All you need to access this goldmine is your computer, tablet or smartphone and the parish’s code, which is 8FFB67.|
