Saint Francis of Assisi “Women’s Weekend Retreat”
Catholic Charities Serves Ventura County With Your Help!– An Appeal at Saturday & Sunday Masses, on Sept. 10th & 11th will be made to benefit the human services provided to needy families, homeless individuals, vulnerable seniors and at risk children of Ventura County. As this country suffers through the most serious economic crisis since the “great depression” the number of people seeking assistance at Catholic Charities has grown enormously. Our government has begun to eliminate all forms of assistance programs. People who never dealt with poverty are desperate for your help. A second collection will be made at all masses to support services provided by Catholic Charities of Ventura County. Thanks to Father Barney and Saint Francis parishioners for your generosity and caring support.
