Thank you to all who made our 100 year Anniversary Celebration of Our Lady of Fatima a huge success. If you haven’t seen the new statue of Our Lady of Fatima, walk between the church and hall, it is beautiful. The Grand Prize winner for the raffle was ticket number 18756 and 2nd Prize winner ticket number 24585. Both winners are parishioners and are very happy.
Pray For Our Graduates Students will be graduating from our 11 elementary schools and two high schools this May and June. Pray that the foundation of faith they have received in their families and from their schools will sustain them in the next steps of their journey. If you are interested in supporting Catholic education for students who need financial assistance, please consider donating to SEEDS and help build the dream of a wonderful education for our children. www.stocktondiocese.org/SEEDS Thank you

Have you moved, changed phone numbers, or had other changes since registering?
Help us to keep our records up to date by letting us know when changes happen—call the parish office at 524-7421 or go to the Update Form page to change your address. Do you consider yourself a member of the parish? If you do, but have not registered, please do so. Please call the parish office at 524-7421. Periodically we mail out information and would hate to have you miss out on what is happening because you haven’t let us know you are part of us. Help us to be a more welcoming parish
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people who watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars.
Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities.
Don’t be a victim!
For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.
