Rosary in the Garden

The month of October is dedicated to the holy rosary. The Catholic Daughters invite all parishioners to join them every Wednesday evening in October, after the 5:30 pm Mass, to recite the rosary in the Prayer Garden. Bring your lawn chairs and intentions as we pray together.    

All Souls Novena of Masses

We will be having a Novena of Masses for All Souls Day from November 2nd – 10th. Each day, one Mass will be offered for the repose of the souls of all the faithful departed. If you would like for your deceased family member or loved one to be included in the novena, simply use the All Souls envelope included in your monthly envelope mailing.  If you don’t receive envelopes, then pick up one of the envelopes at the doors of the church.  Be sure to list their names and return the envelope with your donation by October 27th and they will be placed in the sanctuary during the novena.

Mark your calendars for Friday night, October 25th from 5:30-10pm.  Come out and enjoy great carnival food (food trucks galore); kid-friendly games (bounce houses, dunking booth, rock climbing wall, ring toss, cake walk, toy walk), and an amazing silent auction in the Parish Hall where we serve beer and wine.

That Man Is You

We can't fight the battle alone.  In this spiritual battle, the lives of men and families are at stake. Your presence is powerful.  We meet Saturdays, 6:30-8:00am, CC #2, coffee and refreshments provided.
