Message from Father Storey
Thank you for your generous response to the Rectory Shower. We received many gifts, donations, and prayers for which we are very grateful. Thank you to the Kitchen of Ars Gourmet Group for suggesting the idea and putting so much time and effort into making it a success. We will be moving into the rectory in a few short weeks and look forward to enjoying the new space.

Next week, we will celebrate two very important Holy Days in the Church’s Calendar of Feasts: November 1 st, the Feast of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation, and November 2 nd, All Souls Day.

Mass times for those days are scheduled as follows: 
  • October 31st (Vigil of All Saints): 6:00 pm
  • November 1st (All Saints): 6:30 am, 8:15 am, 12:10 pm, and 6 pm
  • November 2nd (All Souls): 6:30 am, 8:15 am

Priest Residence Update
The rectory is nearing completion. The interior painting is finished, all the cabinets are in place, and the concrete for the driveway and patio is poured. Over the next few weeks, the countertops and backsplash will be installed and the lighting and electrical will be completed. The last steps will be to install carpet, finish the hardwood floors, and complete the final touches on the exterior. While the rain caused our timeline to be pushed back slightly, we are planning to have the priests moved in before the Thanksgiving holiday.
Circle drive has been poured.
