ï We are grateful to those who made a pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal. Your donation will go a long way in supporting the life and mission of the Church in our diocese.We are happy to report that, to date, 122 parishioners have already pledged a total of $40,841 of which $31,078 have already been sent in. For such a large community as our parish, this number of actual donors is rather modest.We strongly encourage everyone to join us in this endeavor. Envelopes are still available at the doors of our church for your use.
ï Registration is now open for our Religious Education Program for next year, with classes starting in September. Please remember that all children who have not received Confirmation are required to participate in the program in order to ensure their spiritual growth and receptions of the Sacraments.Please contact our parish office to register your child.
