Monday, June 27 National HIV Testing Day was established as an annual observance to promote HIV testing. The theme is “Take the Test. Take Control.” Simply make a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul IHM Conference in the amount of $25.00 for every hour the volunteer spends on your job. This is a win, win, win situation: we help you, you help the St. Vincent de Paul IHM Conference, and the St. Vincent de Paul helps the many people in need. So if you need some assistance with small jobs around the house, call 770-986-4996 and ask for Dirk. HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. HIV weakens a person’s immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. No effective cure exists for HIV. Some groups of people in the United States are more likely to get HIV than others because of many factors including their risk behaviors and geographic location. Blacks and Latinos continue to be disproportionately affected. According to Emory University’s Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), the South is home to 21 of the 25 metropolitan areas with both the highest number of individuals living with HIV and newly diagnosed with HIV infection (includes Metro Atlanta and Augusta). CDC data show that the South lags behind the rest of the U.S. when it comes to HIV-positive people getting the treatment they need or knowing that they are infected in the first place. Nearly 1 in 8 people living with HIV are unaware of their status. BLOOD DRIVE The May 11 blood drive was a huge success! Our goal was 40 units and we received 51.

Please join us for the first of our summer “inquiry” sessions on Wednesday, June 29, 7:00-8:00 p.m., in the lower level of the church. Contact Drew Denton in the parish office for more information. Each Thursday, Dr. Louanne Bachner leads an informative and prayerful discussion of the lectionary readings for the following Sunday. The study meets in the Lower Level at two different times: 9:30 a.m. or 7:00 p.m. There is no registration required and no fee to participate. Feel free to join the group as your schedule permits. Eligible students will receive the sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of 2017 (exact date to be determined, once the bishops release their schedules). All candidates for Confirmation must be baptized, practicing Catholics, in the 10th grade or higher. They must have received at least two years of religious education immediately prior to being confirmed, either at a Catholic school or through our parish Life Teen youth ministry program (the 2016-2017 school year will count as one full year). In addition, they must attend a few preparation sessions during the 2016-2017 school year and an overnight retreat just prior to Confirmation. There will be a mandatory meeting for Confirmation candidates and their parents on Sunday, September 25, 6:15 p.m. More details will be announced in the bulletin and on the parish website as they become available. For now, please mark your calendars for September 25 and make sure you are enrolled in religious education for the 2016-2017 school year (Enroll in Life Teen online at http://ihmatlanta.org/faith-formation-enrollment). And while you’re at it, please consider joining the music and ministry team for the 5:00 p.m. Sunday Mass, which will be moving in a youth-friendly direction this fall (sign up at http://ihmatlanta.org/lifeteenband). If you’ve just graduated from middle school, it’s already time to start making plans for your Confirmation! Rising 9th-graders who wish to be confirmed in the spring of their 10th-grade year must be enrolled in religious education for the 2016-2017 school year. This can take place either as part of a Catholic school curriculum or through our parish Life Teen youth ministry program (or, for the adventurous, both!).

All chaperones must complete the required volunteer forms and must be background checked prior to participating.

VIH debilita el sistema inmunológico de la persona mediante la destrucción de células importantes que luchan contra la enfermedad y la infección. No existe una cura eficaz para el VIH. Algunos grupos de personas en los Estados Unidos son más propensos a contraer el VIH que otros debido a muchos factores, incluyendo sus comportamientos de riesgo y ubicación geográfica. Los negros y los Latinos continúan ser desproporcionadamente afectados. Tratamientos del VIH son muy eficaces en el control del virus, ayudan a personas que viven con VIH a tener una vida más larga y saludable, y reducen significativamente las posibilidades de transmitir el virus a otros. Conocer su estatus de VIH es un primer paso crucial. Favor de leer http://ihmatlanta.org/espanol. Feliz Día de los Padres: Haga una donación en honor de la memoria de su padre.
