"Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly, do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God."
— St. Isidore of Seville

Welcoming Jesus into our parish as King, Savior, and Friend, through the enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a conscious decision to place Jesus at the center of your lives, parish and home. This devotion is unique because it has been spoken about in papal letters and is centered on the love of Jesus Christ.
Religious Education will be starting up this Fall Mid September
Registration will be from July 31-August 29 in the Church Hall after each Mass.
The Registration is for all grade levels.
The cost is $20 for the first student, $10 for the second child, and free after that.
The most a family will pay is $30.
We are in need of teachers-if you have some interest we would love to hear from you! The commitment would most likely be 2 mornings a month. But you could team up with another and each do one morning.
Confirmation will be taught on Monday evenings.
We would love to hear from you-please reach out to Judy Keenan or the office.
Any student who has not done First Communion (2nd grade or older)please let us know during registration. This is also true for Confirmation students (10th grade and up).
MEDITATION OF THE DAY
"When we are living in the world, we can easily take on the mindset of a secular society. It is important for us to cultivate in our lives, with great care, God’s way of looking at things and life in general. His Word guides us."
— Rev. Thomas J. Donaghy
VERSE OF THE DAY
"To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name; by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing."

The Legacy of Hope is a diocesan capital campaign whose goal
is to raise $32,000,000 to fund vital, long-term needs for a more
secure future for our diocese and its parishes.
Our parish target is: $279,358.00 40% of every dollar raised
up to the parish target will stay at the parish for our own projects.
For every dollar raised above the parish target, 60% will be
returned to the parish.
What will we do with the monies returned to the parish?
Those who came before us built, maintained and repaired
this church and other parish buildings as their legacy to us. Now
it is our turn. We have the chance, through this campaign, to do
the same for those who come after us. This campaign offers us
an opportunity to help our church by creating a real vision of the
future. Our plan for the monies returned to our parish include:
·air conditioning for the church
• repairs to the gym roof to maintain the vitality of the building
• repairs to the parking lot that will help with insurance and the
safety of our parishioners and visitors
• updating and repairs to our church building with a general
maintenance fund for sudden or unexpected expenses including
HVAC, plumbing, roofing and other church or rectory equipment.
Our Commitment weekend is June 12th and 13th
