We are delighted to announce the continued growth in contributions to the Annual Catholic Appeal.

We invite each and every family to consider contributing to this vital cause in our Diocese. Envelopes are available at the church entrances.

Attention families: all Catholic children must be enrolled in our parish’s religious instruction program, not only to receive the Sacraments but also to grow in their faith. Registration is now open until August 31st for both new and returning students, with a discount available if you register before this Friday.

We are thrilled to announce that next year, in 2025, our Youth Group will embark on a pilgrimage to Rome for the Youth Jubilee with Pope Francis, accompanied by Bishop Robert Brennan.
