Dear Friends: “Faith illumines life and society” - Pope Francis: Through your support of the Catholic Ministries Appeal we are able to pass on the treasures of Faith to a new generation of Jesus’ disciples. Teaching religion and sharing the Faith with young people – this is Jesus’ message – to proclaim the word of God. We do that by living the message every day. There is something so rich in spreading our Faith – you want to go out and share it with other people. That’s the Apostolic message.” Please consider donating to the Appeal and making a difference in the lives of our young people. Thank you! Maggie Martin, Director of Religious Education. St. John of God, Central Islip.
