Father Nave will give "First Blessings" in the Library of the Parish Center following Mass.

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.
