Dear Fathers and Parish Staff,
The Annual Catholic Appeal launched last weekend October 20, & 21, 2012. I urge you to carefully review the check off list for the Education Weekend October 27 & 28, 2012. Assure to call your Lay Witness Speaker and go over logistics. Sample Lay Presenter Talk see pages 13-14 in the Manual. (Attached)
October 27/28: Education Weekend (Check Off List)
___ Assure Posters are displayed. (Were handed out during Convocation)
___ Insert Pastor Letter in Parish Bulletin. (Attached)
___ Pastor/Associate Pastor Introduce Lay Witness Person.
___ Use ACA suggested Prayers of the Faithful at all Masses.
___ Place announcements in bulletin and make pulpit announcements at all Masses.
___ Confirm with those who will distribute in-pew pledge envelopes and pencils at each Mass. If these are not going to be hand distributed, then, assure that the pencils are inserted in all in-pew envelopes during the week before Pledge Weekend. Note: Do not place in pews until November 3 & 4 on Pledge Weekend.
I also have attached instructions how to download documents from the ACA website: http://yakimadiocese.org/offices/annual-catholic-appeal
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Patricia Thompson or myself at (509) 965-7117.
