Holy Child Catholic School
Capital Campaign Committee Survey

HCCS has reached the limit of its facilities in Blessed Miguel Pro Hall. Expansion is needed with a new building, or severely restrict enrollment in the future. Guidance from the parish is needed. A survey has been developed to obtain the guidance. The survey can be accessed on the internet by logging onto surveymonkey.com/r/QH63SB5. The school needs to get as many responses back as possible, so please take 5 minutes to help HCCS.

Holy Child Parish Consecration to Mary

Holy Child Parish, under Mary's motherly protection, brings the promise of great graces. Since 2017 is the 100th anniversary of Our Lady's appearance to the children in Fatima, let us make a resolution: To consecrate ourselves this year as a parish to Jesus, through Mary. For more details click here.

The feast of Our Lady's Assumption Consecration to Mary on August 15th will be done at the August 20th Rosary. Fr. Granito will have the group consecration at that time. Anyone who has already consecrated is invited to renew on that day as well.

Eucharistic Adoration Adorers Needed

"Could you not watch one hour with me?" Matthew 26:40
We like to schedule two adorers each hour in case one can't make it. We are currently in need of a second adorer for Monday through Friday for any of these hours between 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. To volunteer call 281-2297.

Did you know that in January 2005, we began a twelve-hour daily Adoration with two adorers every hour to celebrate the "Year of the Eucharist" proclaimed by the late Pope John Paul II? Come and experience the "True Presence" yourself.

Currently the number of adorers barely covers each hour. We need 45 new adorers in order to have two on each hour. If you have been considering Adoration – take the plunge now. There are so many blessings during and from Adoration.
