Capital Campaign Update

We are now deep into the public phase of our Today Tomorrow Together campaign. This is the time where we appeal to everyone in the parish to support the campaign.

Let Us Prepare for the Coming of Lent

Christmas is behind us. Ash Wednesday is fast approaching. The gray skies of winter are hanging over heads. Isn’t this an upbeat beginning? But I think we all get a little down in the trough this time of year.

Today Tomorrow Together Kickoff

On January 12th and 13th we will begin the public phase of the capital campaign that we are undertaking for Seton Catholic School, Christ the King Parish and Sacred Heart Parish. Committees and individuals from all three institutions have been working hard during the fall.

Celebrating Epiphany

Epiphany in a word that means manifestation. During January we have readings that cause us to be in awe of Jesus our Savior. At certain moments, people look at him and they ask questions. “The main question is, “Who is this person who has come into our midst?”

Giving Thanks this November

Thanksgiving still marks the beginning of the holiday season. I always like Thanksgiving because it is not a big commercial holiday. Halloween, Christmas, and Easter offer vendors more opportunities to make money. Thanksgiving is a one-day event. It comes and goes very quietly. But it is a day when I have memories of family gatherings where there was quality time spent together around a common meal. My family played games and shared stories.

A Closer Look: Parish Finances

We ended the year “in the black” and are grateful for the financial health of our parish. In our continued spirit of transparency, we would like to share additional financial details about our year.

Diagnosing Our Financial Health

Every year our parish finance committee shares a complete financial report with every parishioner. We do this, so every parishioner will understand the financial health of the parish.

A Year of Growth

This year will be a pivotal year in our parish. We will be engaging in a capital campaign. It is a unique undertaking. We are joining with Christ the King Parish and Seton School to raise funds for building projects that will affect all three institutions. We have contracted with the Steier Group which is headquartered in Omaha Nebraska to solicit pledges for the improvements we hope to make. How the Catholics of Moline will respond to this undertaking will determine how healthy our local Catholic Community will be in the future.

Faith Formation is the Greatest Gift We Can Give

Evangelization is something that is always on our mind as a parish. The main reason we exist is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We want to see people commit their life to Christ and be baptized. One of the main ways we form young people in the faith is through our Catholic Schools.

The Lessons of St. Vincent DePaul

St. Vincent DePaul is a world-wide movement of lay people who seek to help the poor and to grow in holiness. Our St. Vincent DePaul members will be available to help transients and to visit people within our parish boundaries. We often have people call our parish with material needs. We want to show them compassion and caring.
