Sixth Sunday of Easter
May 22, 2022

When we launched the Parish Renewal Initiative, one of the concerns you shared with me is that we don’t have enough community gatherings outside of Mass. You shared with me how much you miss seeing people, talking with them, sharing stories and meals with them... Joyfully, I invite you to join us for our Parish Picnic on Sunday, June 5, 2022!  Read More...

God Bless,
Fr. Ritche

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

When dealing with a loved one suffering with mental illness and or addiction, life can be quite challenging and full of fear, resentment and even anger. We want to have compassion and patience, but sometimes it is simply too much and the anger overwhelms us. Read more...

Hygiene Kits

Saturdays at Sacred Heart

Your help is needed during the months of June through September!

Join us at Sacred Heart to help sort and bag produce for weekly distribution. Sacred Heart is a valuable resource for our underserved community members and this is one of the many ways we can assist our brothers and sisters in need.

Volunteers need to be at least 9 years old to participate, and volunteers between the ages of 9-14 must be accompanied by an adult. This is a great opportunity for families to participate in community service together and earn service hours. Sign up here.

We had a wonderful year of ministry. Both 3sixty and Edge were back in person this year and it made such a huge difference.

Thank you to all who participated, to all who helped served, and to all who continue to support these wonderful ministries. While 3sixty and Edge will be on a short break, there will be some summer events to look forward to! More details to come.
