Time & Talent Survey, Complete & Return
A new Time & Talent Survey has been passed out for completion as soon as possible! This survey has not been done since fall 2017. For this reason, an updated form needed to be provided to the parish, but as well, the Parish Council felt the completion of the Church renovation was a good time for the form update to occur. The Time & Talent Survey is an opportunity for each parish family to reflect on the time and talents you would like to offer our parish over the next year. There are a variety of ministries available to participate in the life of our parish. You may pick up a form in the church vestibule or click here to download. Please return your completed form as soon as possible! Return your completed form by placing in the collection basket, dropping off at or mailing to the Parish office. The Pastoral Council deeply appreciates your prayerful consideration of sharing your time and talents as you complete this form.

Reverence & Holy Silence in the Church
From the March 3 Pastor's Pen ... With our renovated church and blessing by Bishop Shawn McKnight, we are feeling great to be back in the well-lit house of prayer and worship. And so now it should draw our attention to the tabernacle being in the center and an attractive crucifix above it as we walk into the church. Our focus must be on Jesus and his presence that must lead us to give due reverence to the sanctuary. Therefore, I suggest that we genuflect in reverence (all those who can) as we step in to the church and maintain sacred silence. From now on, all our conversation before or after Mass will take place in the gathering area which is spacious enough but never to be in the church any more. This will allow others who want to continue to pray after Mass to do so comfortably. We all must collectively enforce this norm admonishing one another with Christian charity when we find someone failing in this respect. Finally, I would request everyone to take this little discipline seriously and help one another to follow it.

There are many great websites, phone apps and email subscriptions that offer devotions and reflections based on the Church's daily Scripture readings, the Saint of the Day or a particular Feast or Memorial. Here are a few to check into for your daily walk with the Lord.

National columnists and news articles provide information and commentary on the issues of the day in light of the Gospel and the Church’s reflection on it, as well as definitive teaching from official leaders.
