ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BISHOP WEISENBURGER

 

I am delighted to share with you that The Catholic University of America is opening a branch campus this fall in Tucson!  This will be The Catholic University of America’s first off-site campus.  The initial program offered is a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management.  Partnering with Pima Community College, local employers, and community organizations, students will be given a personalized and supportive faith environment for post-secondary learners in Tucson.  The Catholic University—Tucson has been able to set initial tuition for the program at a level far less than annual, in-state tuition at any of the prominent four-year public universities in Arizona, thus helping ensure that all students are able to share in the benefits that come from earning a traditional four-year degree from the prestigious Catholic University of America right here in Tucson.  Refer any prospective student and family to Keiran Roche (520) 314-5080 or rochek@cua.edu or direct to website:  catholic.edu/Tucson.

                 Due to pandemic-related unemployment, the Tucson metro area is experiencing a tremendous need for food.  We have a lot of hungry people, and they deserve our help.  As Jesus reminds us in the Scriptures “what you do for the least among you, you do for me.”  Now is the time for those whose financial situation has not been greatly impacted by the pandemic to come together to feed the hungry Christ in our midst.

 

Catholic Community Services and the Diocese of Tucson is partnering with seven Tucson area parishes for a critical food drive next week, Monday May 11th through Saturday May 16th.  Non-perishable food items will be dropped off at the church.  Those receiving the food donations will be using gloves and masks and donors will not be permitted to exit their cars. Please note that different parishes throughout the Diocese of Tucson will be open on different days of the week and only during the morning hours (7:00 a.m. – 11:00 A.M.). 

 

Those unable to purchase food or drop it off may make an on-line donation to Catholic Community Services at www.ccs-soaz.org and others will do the shopping and deliver for you! 

 

For a list of parish drop-off sites, the schedule for which days they will be open next week, and the kinds of non-perishable food most needed, please see the flier on the front page of the Diocese of Tucson web site.

 

The need is critical.  I humbly ask you to respond generously.  And please remember, it is Christ we are serving.

 

May God bless you abundantly.
