THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

by Fr. Rich

The last few weeks have been like a whirlwind for me. Between lung surgery, a ten day hospital stay recuperation period far longer than I wanted or expect and the isolation, made it all a difficult time. Your prayers, well-wishes, cards and sentiments made everything pass quickly. Thank you for your concerns, your remembrances and […]

Thank You for your generous support in our Christmas Collection

by Fr. Rich

I want to say Thank You for your generous support in our Christmas Collection. The total amount received was $16,681.00. The Christmas collection may seem like an extra collection beyond the regular Sunday, but it is not an extra but a necessary one that works into our parish budget of expenses. Thank You for you […]

Annual Homecoming Bazaar – Thank You!

by olv18372

Our Annual Homecoming Bazaar has come to another successful conclusion. A little rain during the week and on Friday night dampened the activities a bit, but it didn’t hurt the spirit of all who came out. I just want to take this moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all who did so […]

Hot Days of Summer

by Fr. Rich
