MIDDLE SCHOOL SERVICE PROJECT | Middle School Ministry students will be outside after all the Masses this weekend, November 9-10, handing out grocery bags for their Thanksgiving Meal in a Bag service project. Please take a bag home with you and fill it with the listed items. Then bring your filled bag back to church next weekend, November 16-17, before any of the Masses or drop it off at the church office before Thursday, November 21. If we run out of bags, you can get a copy of the list in the church office or on the youth ministry website and use any grocery bag. Monetary donations and grocery gift cards would also be greatly appreciated. Please contact Lailani Gachalian at email@example.com with any questions. Thank you for helping our students support local families in need this Thanksgiving!
All Middle School Youth Ministry volunteers must complete background screening.

Sexual Abuse Compensation Program| The Independent Victim Compensation Program (ICP), a program sponsored by the Diocese of San Diego to assist victim-survivors who were abused as minors by priests of this diocese, has begun accepting applications. The ICP is independent and not controlled by the Church. There is no time limit on when the abuse may have taken place. The program will consider all claims, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred. No attorney is necessary and there are no fees of any kind. U.S. Residency is also not required.
