Do you know a non-Catholic adult who wishes to explore the Catholic faith; or a Catholic who has never received First Communion or been Confirmed? We have a program tailored for these adults. Call Cheryl Duda at 476-6676.
Register now for next year’s Religious Education program. Children in public school who will be entering First Grade through High School in September are eligible for these after school and evening classes. Besides grade level classes, instruction prepares children for Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation. Call Cheryl Duda (476-6676) for information.
MOTHER’S DAY NOVENA MASSES: Sunday, May 8th, is Mother’s Day. Our Parish will have a Novena of Masses for all our mothers – living and deceased. The Novena of Masses will begin on Sunday, May 8th, and finish on Monday, May 16th.
There are cards and/or envelopes at the back of the church. If you want your mother, mother-in-law or any mother remembered in the Novena of Masses, please write out the envelope with your donation and drop it in the collection basket or bring it to the Rectory during the week.
SOCIAL MINISTRY: Our Food Pantry has an ongoing need, for coffee, pasta sauces, canned tuna, rice and paper products. Please keep this in mind when you see sales on your trips to the supermarket. We are averaging around 12 families per week. Thank you for your continuing support!
