Believe it or not, but it has been 12 ½ years since we have been in our Church and, other than some normal cleaning, nothing has been done (the Church was blessed on November 30, 2002). The carpets are getting to a point of no return. Our 50 lights in the worship space have ballasts that are no longer manufactured…so, eventually, they will not work. There are some beyond normal “fix-up” items that need to be addressed…the window sills in the Little Chapel have some erosion and rot in them. All of these little things add up to big expense items. 
Thanks for your support of "Keep the Light On" 2015 Drawing, Father Rick

The word "gospel" literally means "good news". Isaiah had prophesied that the Messiah would come in the power of the Holy Spirit to bring freedom to the afflicted who suffered from physical, mental, or spiritual oppression (see Isaiah 61:1-2). Jesus came to set people free - not only from their physical, mental, and spiritual infirmities - but also from the worst affliction of all - the tyranny of slavery to sin, Satan, and the fear of losing one's life.

God's power alone can save us from hopelessness, dejection, and emptiness of life. The Gospel of salvation is "good news" for everyone who will receive it. Do you know the joy and freedom of the Gospel?

Church Events

Meditation: Are you critical towards others, especially those who may be close to you? The most severe critics are often people very familiar to us, a member of our family, a relative, or neighbor or co-worker we rub shoulders with on a regular basis. Jesus faced a severe testing when he returned to his home town, not simply as the carpenter's son, but now as a rabbi with disciples. It would have been customary for Jesus to go to the synagogue each week...

Meditation: How can we fight fear with faith? Jesus' sleeping presence on the storm-tossed sea reveals the sleeping faith of his disciples. They feared for their lives even though their Lord and Master was with them in the boat. They were asleep to Christ while he was present to them in their hour of need. The Lord is ever present to us. And in our time of testing he asks the same question: Why are you afraid?...

Why Pentecost?

Today is the Great Feast of Pentecost. Fifty days past Easter. We remember it as the day the Holy Spirit descended upon the Disciples. Next to Easter and Christmas, Pentecost is probably considered the most important liturgical feast for us a Catholic Christians.

I appreciate each of you in your prayers for me and for my family, especially my Sister, Cheri. As a family, we recognize the power of prayer. Your prayer during the time of my Dad's death gave all of us hope and comfort.
