We've reached almost 85% of our parish goal! If you haven't given to this campaign as yet, please prayerfully consider making a donation.

And remember, once we reach our goal, 10% of the money raised is returned to our parish to be used in our own community for local needs. Additionally, 75% of money collected above our goal is returned to our parish.

Something to think about...questions for this week

What are you doing to show your love for Jesus? How do you keep His word? The answer lies in what you do every day, not just on a Sunday or a holy day. Trusting in Him and just spending time with Him are imperative and simple, yet more profound and life-changing than most realize.

(Remember - though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)

What is God calling you to do?


Discernment groups are meeting now for those men discerning a call to the priesthood, as well as for women discerning a call to the religious life to help answer the question, 'What is God calling me to do?'.
More information can be found by contacting the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 583-2864.
