Any parishioner admitted to a local hospital should contact the Catholic Hospital Chaplain through the hospital. A family member should contact the parish when someone is admitted to the hospital.

The attendance at Pre-Cana or an Engaged Encounter Weekend is required. One must be a registered member of the parish. Our parish upholds the Gospel values and the Churchs teachings regarding the sacredness of marriage and those couples choosing to live together in contradiction of those values, will receive a simple ceremony and all Diocesan regulations followed.

  • Now the Lord has spoken who formed me as his servant from the womb Isaiah 49:5

    You have to do what God is calling you to do and I have to do what God is calling me to do. Guess what, each of us has been given a different plan! So, stop comparing yourself to others. Dont let envy and jealousy enter your life. Be thankful for the gifts God has given you and generously share them with others. The collection for January 8th will be reported in next weeks bulletin.

    MEDITATION FOR January 15th, 2017

    As disciples, we have been called to witness to Christ before others and to be His holy presence in the world. As we move back into ordinary time after our Christmas celebrations, we are invited to continue to reflect on the great mystery of Gods presence in our world through Christ, whose birth we have just celebrated. That

    invitation challenges us to conform our lives to His so that we might bear witness to the truth and hope He brings to us, as individuals and as a community of faith. The first reading speaks of how God chose Israel to serve as a light to the nations so the message of salvation may reach the ends of the earth. Saint Paul greets the community in Corinth by reminding them of their vocation to holiness and prayer. In the Gospel, John the Baptist testifies that Jesus is the Son of God.
