are in wheelchairs and could not come to church without us. For
more information, sign up at the front counter; call Kathy Hackett
at (512) 928-1776; or email AustinLivingCenter@utcatholic.org.

Achieving energy savings is at the top of the business
manager’s list of New Year’s resolutions. The UCC
is pleased to be partnering with Ideal Impact, an
energy consulting organization based in Dallas that is
committed to returning monies spent on energy bills
to Christian ministry. Idea Impact is helping us craft a ministry-
specific energy schedule using their scheduling software, and much
more! In fact, if we don’t save, we don’t spend a dime! To learn
more about energy stewardship, contact me at:
meghan@utcatholic.org.

Stay tuned for parish reports concerning the Center’s financial
performance in the first half of FY2014. We are happy to report a
positive performance and an increasing commitment of our
community and donors to monthly giving. You make our ministry
thrive!

The Diocese of Austin is beginning the process to develop a new
Pastoral Plan, an important document that guides the mission and
direction of the Diocese for the next five years and responds to

Diocese. These sessions are open to everyone, and it is their hope
that you will take part in this important process. The following
listening sessions will be in English:

Feb. 5, 7 to 9 pm, St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Austin
Feb. 6, 7 to 9 pm, Reicher Catholic High School, Waco

We encourage any interested UCC community members to attend
these upcoming sessions. If you decide to attend, please advise one
of our pastoral staff members so that we know that the UCC has
been represented at these gatherings!
