Food for Thought
  • Lord, I do not know about the end of the world, but there have been time when I felt that: I was facing the end of my world: when I lost a job or faced the death of someone dear to me. Yet I lived on and found unsuspected resources.


  • In all the losses and catastrophes that threaten, I know that you are with me.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?     WELCOME!

Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

Thank you and welcome.
