Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,

As we take time to remember those who have given so much for our freedom, might I remind you about the great gift of freedom we enjoy. We need to work together to make strong those rights protected by the Constitution, especially the Right of Religious Freedom, given us in the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. May we thank God for our freedom and ask the peace of the Lord upon our Nation.

Why is it important that all parishioners are registered in our Parish Census?

Many times parishioners request letters of recommendation for educational or employment purposes, as well as Sponsor Certificates to be sponsors at Baptism or Confirmation, and other special needs.
