St. Clare's Breakfast Report and Part II of membership drive coming up

First of all, the breakfast:  We did quite well, serving 172 breakfasts, netting $408.

Tom Owen's badge idea was a real hit.

            8:30 Mass        10:45 Mass

                $326                $212

Gross:      $538

Net:         $408

Stipend to St Clare's:    $204

In addition to that, thank you to Ron Boyce and Bob Kish for helping with the membership drive on top of the Breakfast.

For part two of the drive, next week we'll hold a St. Patrick's Day Ice Cream and Cookies Social, at St. Clare's, noon to 4:30 pm.  Bring your prospects you met at either the SJF or St. Clare's Breakfasts!  It should be quite the fun time, with movies for the kids and the Lego Church project.  Catholic Daughters will have a presence, and we can talk to people in a more relaxed setting.

Safe Havens Training

The newest revision to Called to Protect is open to all in the Archdiocese of Portland.  The certificate you earn taking the test at the end of the video is necessary for working at any event with children; but this year, I have to say that the training is exceptionally good.  It's provided by Covenant Eyes, and while it does contain a mild advertisement for their services, the training itself is free, as is the tracking of your training.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on "Start Learning"
  3. Register a personal account, choosing Archdiocese of Portland In Oregon, then choosing your parish.
  4. View the 18 minute training video.
  5. Complete the quiz (button at the bottom of the training video screen)
  6. Print out or save certificate.

My brothers, we have two events where children will be present coming up, the St. Patrick's Day Informational Social and the April Fools/Easter Egg Hunt at St. Clare's.  Let us complete this training for our families, for our children, for our grandchildren.  And who knows, you might learn something you did not know.
