GRAND ANNUAL COLLECTION 2022
Goal: $170,000   |    Total Received: $ 107,000
Our Grand Annual Collection is now underway. Funds from this collection help to pay our weekly bills. Your Grand Annual envelopes may be placed in the collections baskets or mailed directly to the rectory throughout the year. Each family is asked to contribute $400. However, what one gives is your choice and no one should give beyond their means. Envelopes are on the ushers’ tables. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

CATECHETICAL SUNDAY - September 18th
Saint Christine’s will join together with parishes throughout the country to celebrate Catechetical Sunday. The theme this year is “This Is My Body Given to You.” Our catechists will be commissioned at the 9:00 am Mass and we will also reflect on the role parents play in handing down the faith to our children and youth. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.
