Feast of the Most Holy Trinity

by olv18372

Did you ever find yourself taking things for granted. In other words, something becomes so much of a habit that you don’t think about what you’re doing. It’s the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity today. When you make the Sign of the Cross, do you say: In the name of the Father and the […]

Feast of Pentecost

by olv18372

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” Today is the Feast of Pentecost, many times referred to as the Birthday of the Church. The Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles and it was the first time the Apostles went out and preached the Word of God without Jesus at their side. On this birthday, let us celebrate that same gift […]

Sacrament of Confirmation

by olv18372

Today, twenty two of our young parishioners are receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. It’s a great experience for them as they are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and now the Church sees them as adult members. They have received the religious education to make decisions of faith. So have we all. But […]

Thank you to all those who participated in our live masses this past week.  I think everybody will agree that it was a little odd sitting far apart with our masks on our faces but it was wonderful to see the church alive again with people and best of all to receive Holy Communion.  This […]

Annual Homecoming Bazaar – Thank You!

by olv18372

Our Annual Homecoming Bazaar has come to another successful conclusion. A little rain during the week and on Friday night dampened the activities a bit, but it didn’t hurt the spirit of all who came out. I just want to take this moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all who did so […]

HAPPY EASTER & THANK YOU

by olv18372

I just wish to express my thanks for your support and generosity in our Easter collection. This year’s collection totaled $14,550.00. Like any parish, the collection at the holidays helps tremendously in making up what the regular Sunday donations can’t cover. Thank You and God Bless You for your love and support of your parish.

Thank You!

THANK YOU: These words just don’t seem to be enough in expressing my appreciation to all who volunteer and help in the parish. Just the last few weeks, Lent, Holy Week and Easter were some beautiful celebrations. I wish to thank all who planned and participated, those who cleaned and prepared the Church, those who decorated and made the Church so […]
