CATHOLIC PLANNED GIVING AND ESTATE PLANNING SEMINAR
The Catholic Diocese of Dodge City is pleased to sponsor: “Catholic Planned Giving and Estate Planning”. These seminars are part of the Department of Development’s stewardship education program and concentrate on the Christian steward’s right to plan for the prayerful and orderly distribution of one’s estate.
The purpose of these seminars is to inform Catholics within the diocese of their rights to ensure that their wishes and the needs of their family are carried out as intended. At the same time, we will illustrate some gift planning techniques people may use in coordination with their estate plan and to give back to God some of the material blessings He has bestowed on all of us. People generally recognize the importance of giving to their parish and diocesan ministries during their lifetime; not too many consider similar gifts in their estate plans and wills. Our vision is to show you the opportunities!
Please join us at one of the Seminars listed:
January 10, 2018, 7:00pm Cathedral of our Lady of Guadalupe, Dodge City
January 15, 2018, 7:00pm St. Anthony Parish Center, Liberal
January 25, 2018 7:00pm Prince of Peace Parish Center, Great Bend
Sacred Heart Pratt to be announced as soon as determined
Here's a sign I've never seen hanging in a corporate office, a mechanic's garage or a politician's headquarters:
WE HAVE AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE:
We care more.
It's easy to promise and difficult to do. But if you did it, it would work. More than any other skill or attitude, this is what keeps me (and people like me) coming back.
Imagine.....what would our parishes look like if this was our attitude about each person that visits on Sunday.
Run Until January 15

THEO 1003 Introduction to Old Testament
Instructor: Sr. Joan Wolf
This course is designed to bring the Old Testament to life and to thrill its readers with the story of one people’s journey into faith. These ancient people’s experiences may reveal the truth of our own journeys in that we can see ourselves in their life experiences, in their growth as well as in their backsliding, in their discoveries of the nature of God and in their misreading what was the will of God, in their frustration when life’s troubles were overwhelming and when they had to trust God when important questions remained unanswered. It is a story which covers 2,000 years, a story of real flesh and blood people searching for God and of God’s loving self-revelation over the centuries.
Class Times: Jan. 20, 27 Feb. 3, 10, 17 Mar. 3, 10, 17, 24 Saturday mornings - 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Location: Interactive Television Sites throughout Dodge City and Salina Dioceses
Cost: 3 hr. course for college credit - $150.00*

Fruit of the Vine – Work of Human Hands
In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s the diocese sponsored a program called “God’s Little Green Acre”, a program to support seminarian education in the Diocese of Dodge City. The program has recently been resurrected, but with a few more options. The program is now called “Fruit of the Vine - Work of Human Hands” and offers two ways to participate:
Fruit of the Vine is for individuals who would like to pledge profits from their earthly labors, such as profits from crop production, sale of livestock, oil production, wind generation profits…etc.
Work of Human Hands is designed for individuals or businesses who would like to pledge a portion of their business profits, annual income or simply give a cash donation to support our seminarians within the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City.
Participation in the program will not only support our seminarians, but we will provide you a plaque or yard sign as a reminder to others to pray for vocations, and will encourage others to participate as well. For more information about “Fruit of the Vine - Work of Human Hands” please contact:
