A message from your pastor: Fr. Tony Russo:
As Christians we are called to live out the two greatest commandments, to love the Lord your God with all of your mind, heart and soul and to love your neighbor as yourself. (Matt 22:37-40) The 2015 Catholic Services Appeal, So Faith May Flourish, is a great opportunity to exercise these commandments. Click HERE for more.
This program IS NOT to raise more money for our parish. The purpose is to teach children the joy of helping others and giving to God out of gratitude for all that God has given to them.
Beginning the weekend of March 1st, children will be invited to come to the altar to share their gift.

Lent is a season of spiritual renewal as we prepare for the Paschal Mystery; the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ. It is a season of prayer, fasting, and alms giving. Lent is a time of quiet reflection, sitting in the classroom of silence allowing Christ to enter the inner room of our hearts. It is a… Read more
