How does my parish benefit from the DDD? First and foremost, the parish benefits by having a priest to celebrate Mass, and administer the sacraments. Secondly, the ministies supported by the DDD are essential to providing positive Christian witness throughout Utah. In addition to supporting these very important ministries, rebates are given to those parishes and missions who exceed their DDD quota.
Black and Indian Missions Collection: Next weekend Feb. 25th and 26th. Mandated by the III Plenary Council in 1884, the 125 year old Nation Collection for Black and Indian people continues as the embodiment of the Church’s concern for evangelizing the Black and Indian people of the United States. The funds are distributed as grants to dioceses throughout the United States, supporting and strengthening evangelization programs which otherwise would cease. Please use the special envelopes in the pews.

Adoration: “I cannot even understand my own actions. I do not do what I want to do but what I hate. What a wretched man I am! Who can free me from this body under the power of death? All praise to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Rom 7:15, 24-25) In this reflection Paul meditates on the weakness of our human nature. When he says, “no good dwells in me,” he means that the blessing of salvation comes not from us, but from God. As we recognize the sinfulness of our human nature, we join with Paul in praising God for the gift of his Son Jesus as our Savior and Redeemer.
