January is the Month of The Holy Name
Mass for World Day of Prayer for the Sick with
the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick
Sunday, February 11th, is world day of prayer for the sick. On that day, at 4:00 p.m., we will celebrate mass for all those who have long-term and/or serious illnesses. The sacrament of anointing of the sick will be offered at that mass. Immediately following the mass, a light supper will be held in the parish hall. Please call the parish office by Thursday, February 8th, to inform us if you are coming so that we can properly prepare the amount of food that we will need.
Fr. Michael Sullivan, O.S.A. will be this year's guest at our Lenten Parish Mission
From Sunday, February 11th–Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Church.
Fr. Sullivan will also preach at our 8:00 am and 10:00 am masses.
Fr. Sullivan's mission schedule concentrates on the seven Sacraments. The first night is Baptism, Confirmation, and the power of the Spirit. The second night is reconciling, healing, and forgiveness. The third night is fidelity and commitment. The fourth night is "call to be one bread, one body."
On the fourth night there will also be hospitality immediately following in the Church Hall.
Fr. Sullivan makes his message known while adding a bit of humor and fun to the mission. Fear is not part of Father Sullivan's mission talk approach. People leave with a smile, his message well taken, and a feeling of pride in being Catholic.
Father Sullivan only asks for a 'love offering' that is taken up the last day of the retreat. This offering goes to retired Augustinian priests. This is all that Father Sullivan requires for his services.
For additional information please call or visit our Parish Office.

“Christmas is a feast that is heart-felt, participatory and capable of warming the coldest of hearts, that removes barriers of indifference towards neighbours and encourages openness towards others and free giving.” “This is why we need even today to spread the message of peace and brotherhood of Christmas,” Pope Francis said on Friday. He was speaking to some 180 artistes of “Christmas Concert” who will be performing in the Vatican, Saturday evening.Read More
