Ashes to Easter Lenten Mission Campaign 2/10/2016

The diocesan Ashes to Easter Lenten Mission Campaign begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10th. We invite each family to take a mission box home in support of the missionary works of the Diocese of Austin. As the Catechism states, “The seasons and   days of penance in the course of the   liturgical year (Lent, and Each Friday in   memory of the Lord) are intense   moments of the Church’s penitential   practice. These times are particularly   appropriate for spiritual exercises, penitential liturgies, and pilgrimages as signs of penance, voluntary self-denial such as fasting and alms giving, and fraternal sharing (charitable and missionary works)” (CCC 1438). Please support this long-standing campaign.

A "Sacrificial Gift"

How can I determine how much is a "sacrificial gift"? One way to determine a sacrificial gift is by relating your gift to your income. Some people reach into their pocket to see what is left from Saturday night. As a good steward, you are being asked to consider donating one hour (2 1/2%) or two hours (5%) of your weekly income. As circumstances change, increase gradually toward the ideal of 10% to your church and other charities. Some will be able to do more while others may need to do less. There are two important points: first is that your gift be a sacrifice and second is that you relate your donation to your income. If your income is $1000/week or $4333/month then a weekly sacrificial gift would be 2.5% = $25, 10% = $50 and 10% = $100.

Ethics and Integrity

Ethics and Integrity. The diocese requires all volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults to have a background check and complete the basic Ethics and Integrity course and attend an EIM refresher course every three years. If you are not sure if you are currently in compliance, please call Joan Woods @ 512-913-5838. You can also go to austindiocese.org and click on "How to access your existing EIM account."
