Souper Bowl, Coffee at Mass?
Last year we collected over 2,000 pounds of food! This is a great family service opportunity.
Come join us in the parish hall
Live the Gospel....
ooking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.
They all ate and were satisfied". Matt 14:19-20
Will you Help?
Every year our parish participates in the
Souper Bowl of Caring
. Food and monetary donations are collected and given to our local food pantry, "The People First Food Pantry." The food and money will be collected after all Masses this coming weekend. After the 11:00 AM Mass on Feb. 3rd we will package the food and transport it to the food pantry. Please be generous!

"Why Don't We Drink Coffee at Mass"
is one of the topics that Fr. Mike Schmitz will cover in this DVD presentation. (Click on the picture to learn more about Fr. Mike.) We are all blessed to be Catholic and participate in the Mass. It is a gift from the Lord. Come here Fr. Mike speak about the Mass!
ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
Every Wednesday in the Church from 3:00 - 6:00 PM
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and helps to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the Church. In Adoration it is proper to pray, read Scripture or related readings, pray the rosary or sit and contemplate. You will grow spiritually with each moment that you spend with Jesus. "My joy, my pleasure, my delight is to be with you." Prov 8:31
