Please bring canned or bagged items, nothing frozen or perishable. Your sacrifices and these cans will be donated to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi.

Our choir will be holding their annual Lenten Fish Fry every Friday during Lent, except for Good Friday, April 14th. Serving times are 4:30pm-7:00pm in the Parish Hall. The cost is $8.00 per plate and includes fried Tilapia, french fries, cole slaw, green beans and hush puppies. For $1.00 extra you can substitute a baked potato for the fries, or you can get just a baked potato with the fixings for $4.50. Dine in or take out.
Stations of the Cross - A Lenten Tradition
Join us for Stations of the Cross every Friday evening of Lent at 7:00 p.m. The stations are a long tradition, which has basis in the ancient Church when people made pilgrimages to the holy sites where Jesus exercised his ministry. Over time, people began to trace the steps of Jesus on the road to Calvary within their own churches, particularly when it was no longer safe to travel to the Holy Land. Join us in keeping this tradition alive. It only requires one-half hour of time.
Easter Flower Offering
At the doors of the church you will find the Easter Flower Offering envelopes. Please return by Sunday, March 28th, so that they can be included in our Easter bulletin.
