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

These are wonderful high quality 1800 thread count bed sheets that normally retail for $79 and up! We are selling them for only $40 for twin or full sets and $45 for queen and king sets. Next order will be placed in early August.

Church Events

Meditation: Is there anything in this life that can truly satisfy our deepest hunger and longing? Many sought Jesus out because he offered them something no one else could give - bread from heaven from the very hand of God himself. When Jesus had performed the miracle of multiplying five loaves of bread and two fish to provide a refreshing and satisfying meal for more than 5000 people (see John 6:1-15), they wanted to make him their king - no doubt because they wanted more...

Meditation: Can anything on this earth truly satisfy the deepest longing and hunger we experience for God? A great multitude had gathered to hear Jesus, no doubt because they were hungry for the word of life. Jesus' disciples wanted to send them away at the end of the day because they did not have the resources to feed them. They even complained how much money it would take to feed such a large crowd - at least six month's wages!

Love Wins

Love Wins

Since the Supreme Court of the United States made their decision allowing same-sex couples to marry, a number of people have asked me about this sign that I have on the Ambo. As many of you can see, it says: “Love Wins”. Because of this sign, people have asked if I am a supporter of same-sex marriage.

Pentecost

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.
