News, Pastor's Note

Pastor’s Note 12/8/19

We congratulate our parish RCIA candidate Neil Vandenbergh, who was formally welcomed into the second stage of the Catechumenate process on Sunday, December 1st. Neil was previously baptized in a Protestant tradition; he is discerning the truth and fullness of faith offered by the Roman-Catholic Church.  Please keep him in your prayers throughout his faith journey. 

   The St. Faustina: Love and Mercy movie tickets are still available at local theaters or online for an additional showing on Sunday, December 10th at 7:00 pm; I strongly recommend to all Catholics to see this movie, especially the members of the newly formed Cenacle groups.
