aq picToday is Catechetical Sunday. Those who the Community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. Catechetical
Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical
Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.

Summer Vacation? Don’t Forget About Our Easy Online Giving Program

This convenient new system does not require you to contact your bank to sign up or to make changes. You can use any of your checking or savings accounts and the funds will be automatically transferred to our parish bank account.

Online Giving helps you maintain your giving even if you cannot attend Mass. You can choose to do a One Time Gift, or you can set up regularly scheduled contributions that are withdrawn on the date you specify in the system.
This system is more convenient for the parish than electronic checks from your bank. It’s convenient for you because you can make changes at any time, see reports on your contribution history and generate tax statements at each year’s end.

Online Giving is very easy to use and requires no special knowledge other than how to access the Internet. If you haven’t already signed up, click the link below to get started to today.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

This group looks into the readings for the upcoming Sunday.  Being prepared by a study of the readings is a great way to increase your active participation in the Holy Mass.  Join Mike Hill in the gathering area of the church from 6-7 pm.  Since this time coincides with CCD, parents are encouraged to attend and share the Good News with fellow parishioners and then evangelize their families.  Any effort to get to know Jesus better will be blessed.
