Parish Campaign

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 was 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 ARE OVER OUR GOAL by $3,706. The Roof Project Update: We are making some tests on our roofs to check their condition, especially the roof deck. We have taken some core samples. It is our hope that we will have enough money collected to do all the roofs at once. That will not only make things more convenient, it will probably lower the price than if we were to do it a few roofs at a time. Please 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.

Sanctity  of   Life   Ministry

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 8:00 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.

Other Happenings

September 6th, Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Imagine how the deaf man felt. He could not hear and others could not understand him when he spoke. It would be an act of courage and perhaps desperation for him to approach Jesus to beg for healing. Many of the young people who share our journey may feel some of the same emotions as the deaf man -- they may lack the confidence to be heard and understood. As we begin a new school year, we pray to be open and reflect God's welcome and love to the many children and families in our midst.
