Wishing All Parishioners A Blessed Easter!
Lord,  Help us to live in the gladness and grace of Easter Sunday, every day. Let us have hearts of thankfulness for your sacrifice.  Let us have eyes that look upon Your grace and rejoice in our salvation. Help us to walk in that mighty grace and tell Your good news to the world. Amen.

     A Note from the Pastor:
Dear Friends,
This weekend we kickoff the 2024 Because We Are Catholic Annual Appeal in our parish and throughout our Diocese. In 2024 the Appeal will provide support for evangelization, vocations, Catholic education, Catholic Charities and care for our retired and infirmed priests.
I am so grateful for your continued generosity to this important Diocesan fundraising initiative and ask you to prayerfully consider joining me in making your gift to the Appeal and support these important ministries. Our parish has been asked to raise $103,189.00. Lets strive for 100% participation from our parish. Together, I believe we can make our goal.
We are stronger together! Together we will make a difference in the lives of many people. Remember, every gift counts, no matter how big or small. To make your gift, please return the pledge form that you will receive in the mail or visit the Appeal’s website at BecauseWeAreCatholic.org
or call the Appeal Office at (800) 831-4443.
With gratitude,
