We encourage families to join us at Daily Mass and/or for the recitation of the Rosary and Chaplet on weekdays in the summer. With school being out and a few days of vacation being available, beginning the day with Mass or prayer is a wonderful means of thanking Our Lord for the many blessings we have received!!!

As our Blessed Mother brings us to her Son, Jesus, it is our task also to bring others to the Lord. Is there someone you can invite to explore the Roman Catholic faith - someone unbaptized, or baptized in a non-Catholic Christian tradition? Perhaps you know a Catholic adult who has not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation? For more information, please leave a message for John and Mimi Timko at the Parish Center, 753-3359.
