Lenten Appeal Extended

We have raised $2,440 for the Bishop's Lenten Appeal thus far. Thank you for giving to this cause! On Good Friday, Bishop Grundorf announced that he has extended the deadline for giving to the Lenten Appeal until Trinity Sunday (June 7) given the limitations placed upon parish communications and closures from the coronoavirus. 

From Bishop Grundorf: "This year’s critical Lenten Appeal is for our Domestic Mission and will be going to our two Mission Churches in Eastern Alabama. Father John Klein has taken on building a Mission Church in Smiths Station (Opelika) Alabama, (St. James the Great) and at the same time, each Sunday following Mass at St. James, travels to Dothan, Alabama, to celebrate Mass and teach at St. Mathias, Church. St. Mathias Church, as some of you know, had an influx of new members from a local Episcopal Church and has gone from 6 faithful souls to 30+ with more considering joining. They greatly need a curate to help them and who at the same time would benefit from serving them under the tutelage of an accomplished priest, Father Klein.

As with previous Domestic Funds, our goal is to raise $100,000 for the support of a Curate who would relocate to the area. He would be compensated at $50,000 the first year, $30,000 the second year and $20,000 the third year. We anticipate that the Missions would be able to offset the Diocesan support and maintain the $50,000 per year."

Saints Bio: St. Monica

We know about Monica almost entirely from the autobiography (the Confessions) of her son Augustine, a major Christian writer, theologian and philosopher (see 28 August). Monica was born in North Africa, near Carthage, in what is now Tunisia, perhaps around 331, of Christian parents, and was a Christian throughout her life. As a girl, she was fond of wine, and one occasion when she was taunted by a slave girl for drunkenness, led her to resolve never to drink again. She was married to a pagan husband, Patricius, a man of hot temper, who was often unfaithful to her, but never insulted or struck her. It was her happiness to see both him and his mother baptized into Christ. Monica soon recognized that her son was a man of extraordinary intellectual gifts, a brilliant thinker and a natural leader of men (as a youngster he was head of a local gang of juvenile delinquents), and she had strong ambitions and high hopes for his success in a secular career. Indeed, though we do not know all the circumstances, most Christians today would say that her efforts to steer him into a socially advantageous marriage were in every way a disaster. However, as she matured through a life of prayer, her ambitions for his worldly success were transformed into a desire for his conversion. He, as a youth, rejected her religion with scorn, and looked to various pagan philosophies for clues to the meaning of life. He undertook a career as an orator and teacher of the art of oratory (rhetoric), and moved from Africa to Rome and thence to Milan, at that time the seat of government in Italy. His mother followed him there a few years later. In Milan, Augustine met the bishop Ambrose, from whom he learned that Christianity could be intellectually respectable, and under whose preaching he was eventually converted and baptized on Easter Eve in 387, to the great joy of Monica. After his baptism they planned to return to Africa together but in Ostia, the port city of Rome, Monica fell ill and said, “You will bury your mother here. All I ask of you is that, wherever you may be, you should remember me at the altar of the Lord. Do not fret because I am buried far from our home in Africa. Nothing is far from God, and he will know where to find me when he comes to raise me to life at the end of the world.”
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
