    Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our safeguard against

    the wickedness and snares of the devil.

    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,

    by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

    ONE FAITH COMMUNITY Let Us Do Great Things Together

    2011 Annual Diocesan Appeal

    In the coming weeks our parish will be participating in the Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) for the Diocese of Peoria. The Church serves each of us, and our financial support is needed to continue God’s work in the Diocese of Peoria. Please give generously as God has given to you. The Diocese of Peoria is made up of 177 parishes and missions, and more than 68,000 Catholic families. There are many ministries and apostolates that the Diocese can offer that we as a single parish cannot. Catechetical training for school and CCD teachers, recruitment and training of priests, medical care for retired priests, ministry to our students on college campuses, evangelization, administration of many of the details of parish financesG these are just a few of the many services we receive from the Diocese of Peoria. Soon we will be asking your help to support these good and necessary works through the Annual Diocesan Appeal. Please keep them in mind as the time approaches. Pledge Weekend is April 9-10.

    How are ADA Funds Used?

    • Educate Seminarians and Deacons • Support Retired Clergy • Catholic Charities • Marriage and Family Life • Catechetics and Catholic Schools • Support For Newman Centers • Divine Worship Office • Diaconate Program • Hispanic Ministry

    This is a good time of year to start preparing for our Risen Christ at Easter. Attending a weekend retreat during Lent is an excellent way to do this. The Streator WATCH group will present such a weekend on April 1-3, 2011 at St. Michael the Archangel School. During the weekend a series of talks are given by lay people and clergy focusing on renewal. Time is set aside for group discussion, meditation and private reflection. The weekend begins Friday evening and ends Sun- day mid-day. The participants return to their own home each evening. It is co-ed, either for singles or couples. WATCH (We Are The Church) is a renewal pro- gram that was designed in 1988 by St. Thomas parish in Peoria. It has grown to include many parishes in the Peoria Diocese as well as the states of Colorado, Iowa, and Wisconsin. During these times of turmoil we all need to find time to spend with Jesus. This is a perfect opportu- nity to renew our own personal self. Please join us and bring a friend.

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, In many ways, families are the heart of our communities. When families are in distress, are separated, or are otherwise challenged, our Church reaches out. And it does so whether those families are across the street or halfway around the globe.

    For example, the Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc. (CLINIC) program called National Pro Bono Project for Children matches unaccompanied immigrant children with legal service providers. These children are the most vulnerable migrants: they are usually without resources and are forced to navigate complex legal proceedings without representation. As another example, the Department of Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops provides coordination, training, funding, and monitoring to experts who provide specialized assistance to victims of human trafficking in the United States. In its initial response to the earthquakes in Haiti, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) distributed food to nearly 900,000 people. Currently, CRS is providing food to more than 90,000 students in more than 270 schools, as well as monthly food rations to more than 100 orphanages and child care centers in Port-au-Prince.

    The generosity of Catholics in giving to the Catholic Relief Services Collection is critical to the work of the Church in caring for the vulnerable among us – victims of war, perse
