Two times a year, we host CARITAS, in which area congregations offer shelter to homeless men, women, and children. Our dates are from August 2-9. We invite parishioners to to step forward in faith to minister to our brothers and sisters during this time. Signup for meals, fellowship, setup and clean up are now available. Please go here
to sign up.
Over the past several weekends, more than 600 parishioners have returned a ministry commitment form! What a great response! Our goal though, is to have every adult parishioner complete the commitment form, whether they are able to commit to a ministry or not. We ask that you please turn in your commitment form through the collection or to the office by the end of June.

From The Pastor
VBS – Vacation Bible School!! What an experience! Watching children excited while talking about the Bible and their faith is energizing for me. The music is lively and every song has motions/actions that go along with it. There are all kinds of activities that are fun. This weekend we will have heard and seen an example of one of the songs at the 9:15 Mass.
I want to thank Tricia Blair who took on the leadership position for our VBS this year and the leadership team that helped her so much – and all the other adults and teens who helped make it all happen. (I decided not to try to start listing any other names because I know I’ll leave someone out!) And thanks to all the children who took part and their parents who got them here.
For the whole week we were looking at “Weird Animals” and celebrating the uniqueness of each and every person. It is an anti-bullying message that also stresses the need to accept each other with all our differences and the things that make each of us unique. It’s a great message for our kids – and not such a bad message for us all! Certainly, Jesus reached out to people who were marginalized in his time because they were different and/or unacceptable in some way.
No one is outside the reach of God’s love. God’s Son came proclaiming this Gospel, this “Good News.” As Jesus’ disciples we are to continue spreading this good news – sowing the seeds of God’s love and trusting God’s grace to nourish those seeds into full-blown richness.
Peace & Love,
Monday-Friday 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
