Due to the wonderful and greatly appreciated help of all of our volunteers and also the parishioners who came to spend their hard-earned money, we had a wonderful festival.  We are happy to report that we realized a total of $114,011.64
 
This great success was due to the cooperation of the weather, the new policies that were implemented, and the extreme efforts that our Committee made to help make this a profitable fundraiser.
 
Thank you for your support as we look forward to next year’s Festival - we will let you know the dates as soon as they have been determined.
 
Fr. McSweeney and the Festival Committee

 

THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE’S
ETHICAL SURPRISE
DENVER --- The Catholic News Agency reported that, from Conan O’Brien to little kids inspired to help those in need, people across the country have taken up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in the past few weeks. The campaign has achieved astronomical success, raising $53.3 million for efforts to find a cure to Lou Gehrig’s disease. Instead of directing donors to the ALS Association, the archdiocese of Denver is asking people to give to the John Paul II Medical Research Institute, or the Stem for Life Foundation. This is because the ALS Association funds an embryonic stem cell research project. Funding embryonic stem cell research cannot be glossed over because it involves serious moral issues. The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains in paragraph 1753 that a “good intention ... does not make behavior that is intrinsically disordered ... good or just. The end does not justify the means.”

WELCOME BACK!
We look forward to a year full of successes and satisfactions.
 
Fr. McSweeney
