Write to Congress Today! The Social Justice Team will be holding a Bread for the World Offering of Letters in the atrium after Mass. We write letters by hand to our representatives and senators to improve the conditions of the poor and hungry around the world. This year we will ask our representatives to revise the Foreign Aid Act to use money more efficiently and take a holistic treatment of foreign aid. Last year in our Offering of Letters, the UCC had the highest number of letters out of all Bread for the World letter campaigns in the nation! Please write a letter to advocate for the needy and maintain our status as number one advocates! For more information about the program, contact the Social Justice Team at firstname.lastname@example.org

Month of Mary — Next month is May, the month dedicated by the church to honor Mary, the Mother of God. As a united community, in celebration and recognition of Mary during this special month, we want to crown her "Mary, Mother of Good Counsel." Crowning images and statues of Mary is a Catholic tradition, dating centuries back, through which we can express reverence for Mary and implore for her intercession. We invite all to join in crowning Mary on Wed, May 13th, at the daily noon Mass. To prepare to crown our own statue of Mary, we want to honor her this month in three ways: * First, each day before Mass, a student will lead the Regina Coeli, the church's traditional Marian prayer during the Easter season. * Second, to learn more about our Mother and how she is relevant today, we invite you to hear a Mariology talk during the first week of May. For your convenience, there are four options for you. May 4th, 5th and 6th, the talk will be given from 7:45 to 8:15pm. May 7th, the talk will be given from 7:30 to 8:30pm, after which all are invited to an hour of Eucharistic Adoration. * Third, we want to honor our Mother Mary by entrusting her with our prayers and asking for her intercession. We invite you to write your personal intentions on our Prayer Mural, located in the atrium, in the alcove next to the stairs beneath the stain glass window of Mary. For more info, pick up a brochure in the atrium.
