Readings for the Week

Due to public health concerns, the Diocese has decided to suspend all public Masses. Baptisms will continue but with only the parents and godparents present. Outside committal services will continue. Using great prudence and where possible, The Sacrament of the Sick and Holy Viaticum may also be administered.

This week is the beginning of Pentecost-celebrating the decent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his Ascension.  We are also celebrating the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Reverence, Knowledge, Fortitude, Right Judgement, Wonder and Awe.

Please see Father Jim's explanations of these gifts in the current bulletin. 


Please see the recent bulletin at the top of the home page (May 31, 2020) for more information about this week as well as readings and the messages and Father's private Mass Intentions.  



Due to public health concerns, at this time, ALL public Masses are suspended.   All other meetings have also been postponed until further notice. Please see the current bulletin (labeled new) at the top of our website for important information from Father Jim, as well as readings for this week.

The public celebration of Sunday and weekday Masses is currently not permitted until Phase II starts.  In this phase, only the clergy may receive the Precious Blood and Communion.  the gifts procession and the sign of peace is omitted.  However, the Diocese has expanded the "drive thru " Mass idea. Please see the current bulletin 5/31/20 for more information and Father Jim's instructions regarding how we can go about this!  It is tentatively scheduled for June 7th at 8:30 Sunday Mass.  

You can have a song of your choice played on the  church bell carillon on a specific day and time of your special intention.  The cost is $10 for a weekday and $15 for weekend.Just stop by the Parish office during normal business hours. 

We strongly encourage support and readership of our diocesan newspaper The Catholic Post. We hope all members of our Parish will use this valuable resource for Catholic living in our diocese.  Follow The Catholic Post on Facebook to get breaking news first and to share stories and images of faith with your family and friends.
