“Neighbors Helping Neighbors”

Sunday Bulletin

We have been emailing our Sunday Bulletin to all parishioners for whom we have an address. If you would like to be added to our list, please call the parish office or send an email to office@olmaz.org

Parish Online Giving

If you haven’t ever given online, now is a good time to start.  With Online giving, there is no touching of checks or money which helps keep both you and our money counters safe from virus transmission. Online giving is helpful for both the parish, since it saves our money counter volunteers time and saves us the expense of printing and mailing envelopes, as well as for you, the donor, since it saves the time used for weekly check writing. If you would like to sign up, please click on the “Online Giving” icon on the left side of this page.

Annual Catholic Appeal

The 2020 Annual Catholic Appeal is now underway. We are currently at 93% of our goal. If you have given before, you should have received a letter from Bishop Weisenburger asking for your pledge, otherwise there are pledge envelopes in the back of the church.  We are encouraged to consider the needs of our Church and of the Diocese as one family in Christ. The Ministries supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal are a great help to our parish as well as other parishes throughout southern Arizona. For example, Father Peter Pedrasa was ordained to the priesthood this June 6th. It is through the Annual Catholic Appeal that he was able to be educated here for the parishes in our diocese. He has been serving with Fr. Ariel in Casa Grande.  Please prayerfully consider your donation and all the good works that donation will provide.

Pray for Vocations

We need to pray for Vocations to the priesthood and religious life, so Bishop Weisenburger has asked the parishioners of the Diocese to specifically pray the rosary for Vocations. This is a critical issue for the future of our Diocese.  If you would like to pray along with our Bishop, you can go to this link: Let us pray the Rosary with our Bishop for more Vocations.

CTSO Tax Credit

Don’t forget to make your donation to CTSO so that you can receive the state tax credit. I make mine the maximum amount I can give. This is a win-win situations since we get our money back as state tax credits and our students get scholarships.  Please remember to check the box for All Saints Catholic School. See the link on the side of the page to make your donation.

All Saints Catholic School

Call the school office for more information: 520-378-7012.

God’s blessings to all,
Fr. Mike Martinez
