Critical Need For Blood Donors

Kentucky Blood Center Facing Critical Need for Blood Donors; Nationwide Blood Shortage Reaches Commonwealth

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Sunday, June 7, 2020 – Today the Kentucky Blood Center announced a critical need for blood donors as the nationwide blood shortage which has been plaguing many areas of our country for weeks has impacted the Commonwealth. KBC, which supplies blood to more than 70 Kentucky hospitals, has an urgent need for all blood types and is encouraging donors to make an appointment and donate as soon as possible.

“We do not issue critical appeals for donors unless the situation absolutely dictates a need,” Bill Reed, Kentucky Blood Center President and CEO, said. “Our initial surge in supply during the pandemic has been exhausted and with elective surgeries not only resuming, but increasing from their normal level, blood donors are urgently needed.”

Due to social distancing guidelines, appointments are required and can be made at www.kybloodcenter.org or by calling 800.775.2522. All six KBC donor centers (listed below) are open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Face coverings should be worn while visiting our donor centers. .

Fund Raising Help Needed

June 21, 2020 Dear Pax Christi Family,

We are 2/3 through the drive to raise funds for the 3 charities chosen to Renew The Spirit as we returned this month to in-person services. Through the generosity of many of our parish members, we are closing in on our goal of $12, 000. Pax Christi has set this contribution target to allocate among 3 organizations: Catholic Action Center, God’s Pantry, and Catholic Charities. So far we have received funds or have pledges totaling $9,416.00. Our cut-off date is July 3. Contributions can still be made electronically:

  • Catholic Action Center: Pax Christi Facebook page or GoFundMe
  • God’s Pantry: Pax Christi Facebook page or GoFundMe
  • Catholic Charities: Pax Christi Facebook page or GoFundMe

If you would prefer, you can mail a check or drop it in the collection basket at mass. Make the check payable to Pax Christi with a notation on the memo line directing us where to send the funds. The world is full of so many challenges today. You are answering one of these challenges through your response to this drive. You are making a difference. Thank you so much.

 In the peace of Christ,

Fast and Abstenence

The regulations on Lenten fast and abstinence are:

· Fasting:  On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, those who are 18 but not yet 60 are allowed only one full meal.  Two smaller meals are allowed as needed, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted. 

· Abstinence from meat:  Those who are 14 years of age or older are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. 

· The more fundamental obligation is to make Lent a penitential season, choosing practices that are adapted to your own circumstances.
