Prayer Before Mass:  Heavenly Father, Your word is creative sustaining all that You have made. In the words of Holy Scripture, You speak life-giving words to us.  Lord Jesus, You gathered the disciples at table, giving us sacred bread and wine.  Through the Holy Eucharist, You nourish Your body, the Church.  Holy Spirit, You came to dwell within us, providing oneness though we are many.  In the gifts given to each, You complete what we begin in faith.  Amen.

The weekly Chaplet of Divine Mercy & recitation of the Rosary are cancelled through the month of August.  Please check back in July for updates to the schedule.

Special Mass for Seniors in the Church & Brown Bag Lunch in the Grove:  The Seniors Club invites all seniors of the parish to attend a special Mass in the church on Wednesday, September 23rd at 11:00a.m., with Fr. Bob Kraig as the celebrant.  All attendees are required to come wearing a mask for the church service.  Afterwards, you are invited to join us in the grove area to eat. Please dress for the weather, bring your own brown bag lunch, beverage and lawn chair, and enjoy some much-needed fellowship with us.  Fr. Bob will explain to us about using the Zoom platform as a way to keep us all connected during this time of social distancing.  If it rains, we will only have the Mass. Registration is not required. Please park close to the church. Do not park near the school, which will interfere with student lunchtime activities.  We hope to see you there!

Time to Whine About No Wine:  With the uncertainty of what the “new normal” might look like going into 2021, it has been decided that the annual Wine Tasting Event will not take place this coming January. The safety and wellness of all parishioners, friends, and family members are front and center in the Welcoming Committee’s mission to the parish. While we regret to disappoint those of you who are regular attendees, as well as those who were anxious to join in for the first time, we know that everybody will understand the need to take this break in 2021 and come back strong in January, 2022.  If you have any questions, please contact the parish Welcoming Committee at
