Summer Months

by Fr. Rich

As I write this, school is about to finish for this year and the CCD (Religious Education) program has completed.  Unfortunately, that also seems to be the time when many of the children seem to disappear from Mass.  Many of those smiling faces, the hand slaps and the little hugs are not there every Sunday.  […]

NEW MASS SCHEDULE

Starting the first weekend in June (June 3rd), we will implement our new Mass schedule.  The Saturday evening Mass will remain at 5:00 pm.   But the Sunday schedule will now be 8:30am  &  10:30 am.  We have reduced the number of Masses as the attendance had been dropping.   Our Church holds 700 people in the […]

HAPPY EASTER & THANK YOU

by olv18372

I just wish to express my thanks for your support and generosity in our Easter collection. This year’s collection totaled $14,550.00. Like any parish, the collection at the holidays helps tremendously in making up what the regular Sunday donations can’t cover. Thank You and God Bless You for your love and support of your parish.

I just want to take this moment to wish everyone a Happy Easter. As we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus, we celebrate new life. After all of Holy Week, its rituals, services and Masses, it’s like a new life has come into our lives and into our Church. May the joy of this day and […]

HOLY WEEK

by Fr. Rich

We celebrate Palm Sunday this weekend.  It represents the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.  And for us, it’s the beginning of Holy Week.  Holy Week is a vivid reminder of what Jesus has done for us.  He sacrificed himself for weach one of us.  He took on the sufferings of the cross for our […]
