Ending the Death Penalty in Indiana
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has called for common action in the Catholic community to bring about an end to the use of the death penalty in America (USCCB, A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death). The Indiana Abolition Coalition is working to end capital punishment in Indiana and welcomes St. Bartholomew as a partner in this effort. For more information or to get involved, contact Donna Keogh: email@example.com. And watch the bulletin for upcoming events!
Bread for the World Offering of Letters
In 2012, Bread for the World members will continue to urge Congress to adopt changes to benefit the poor of the world. During the weekend of June 9th and 10th, St. Bartholomew Parish will hold the annual Bread for the World Offering of Letters.
This year, Bread for the World again urged Congress and the administration to form a circle of protection around programs that help poor and hungry people, with an over-all campaign and four mini-campaigns – on domestic nutrition, poverty-focused foreign assistance, tax credits for low-income families, and international food aid programs.
You can visit www.bread.org for more information.
Please join us for this wonderful opportunity to help those in need again next year.
