Repent and Experience the Mercy of Our Lord

01-28-2018Pastor's LetterFr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

See how much God loves us. When we fail in discipleship after the baptismal waters have cleansed us, Jesus offers yet another sacrament to heal us. In John 20:23 Jesus calls his disciples to forgive sins. After breathing the power of the Holy Spirit into them Our Lord states, “Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”


Catholic Schools Week 2018 January 28 - February 3

01-21-2018Pastor's LetterHarry Plummer, Superintendent of Catholic Schools

Dear Catholic School Families,

A happy and blessed 2018 to each of you! This year the theme for Catholic Schools Week "Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed." encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, we, as educators, are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed!


House Blessing

01-07-2018Pastor's LetterFr. Don Kline, V.F.

One of the great Christmas traditions of the Church is to bless one's house to start a new year; and in a perfect world we the priests and deacons Peter and Mark could get that done for all of our parishioners before the close of Christmas on January 8th. Breaking the numbers down for our 2000 families that would mean each of us would need to bless about 42 homes a day for the 12 days of Christmas, which would be a fun challenge for us and probably the making of an insane Hallmark movie [or our next fundraising opportunity]. In lieu of that, we will instead provide in this bulletin the prayers for the blessing of a home during the Christmas season. Why blessed with chalk?
