We are currently running a Campaign which we are calling our PAVING OUR WAY TOGETHER CAMPAIGN in order to redo and replace our Parking Lot and the roofs on five of the church buildings. Our goal is to raise $550,000 through pledges that can be paid off over a three year period. We have a Tree of Life Memorial in the church for those who wish to remember loved ones (living and/or deceased) through a leaf on the tree. We currently have raised approximately $488,000 in pledges and contributions. Call the parish office (627-2710) to find out how you can be a part of this special endeavor which will insure our future and help us continue to be that wonderful and visible presence of Jesus Christ in our midst.
As members of the Catholic Church, we have been entrusted in a special way to promote, safeguard and protect the Sanctity of Human Life. We know that Life is God's greatest and most precious gift to us. Unfortunately, many in our society today, including our government, have lost sight of the infinite value of each and every life, whether seen or unseen. However, together we can make a difference and help bring about a change of heart in our society. To be a part of this most important ministry and work, join us every Friday morning, beginning with Mass at 7:00 AM, followed by prayers and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament until 10:00 AM. During this special time of prayer, we will pray for a greater awareness and appreciation of the Sanctity of Life from its beginning at conception until natural death. Join us and help spread the word. For more information, please contact Fr. Ross at the parish office.

Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today's reading describes the cost of discipleship. This translation of a popular Peruvian hymn echoes Jeremiah's words with the refrain "I must keep going; I must continue the struggle; Woe to me if I do not! How can I escape, How can I keep silent, When your word burns within me?" In the Gospel, Peter discovers that following Jesus will have a cost. He is not pleased; he thought he was on a road to glory. So when Jesus said that he would suffer in Jerusalem, Peter said this was not the positive message the people wanted to hear. Jesus's shocking response is "Get behind me, Satan!" Jesus is telling Peter to be a disciple, to walk in His shoes. He states clearly that following Him on the way of the Cross is more important than life itself.
