Thanksgiving Day Mass

Eucharist means Thanksgiving. Come on Thanksgiving Day and give thanks to God for His many gifts, graces and blessings. Masses are scheduled at 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M.

Even though the food baskets for Thanksgiving have gone out, we still are looking for those frozen turkeys as we also give them out at Christmas. So if you get that free turkey or a great price on one, please remember those needy families that we serve. Just drop the turkey off on the cart by the office door. Thank You for sharing with those less fortunate

As you know, the Diocesan Appeal supports many worthwhile programs, activities and people throughout the diocese and parish. Your donation goes a long way to helping a great number of people from our children and their Catholic education to the home bound and needy. Our parish goal is $55,000.00 As on November 4th, 2018, we have reached a total of $22,422 or 29% of our goal. Won’t you please help? Pledge and donation envelopes were mailed out a few weeks ago. There are more envelopes on the table in the Narthex. Please help us attain our goal and do our part to bring our faith out into the area.
