Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
"Faith in Jesus Christ: To know God and God’s Son, Jesus Christ, is life eternal; that is, to have the knowledge which our faith gives us of God and of His Son, Jesus Christ, is to be on the way to eternal life. Our faith in Jesus Christ consists in knowing truly in our hearts that He is the Son of God. Let us love to repeat endlessly these words of eternal life which Saint Peter spoke, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Mt 16:16).
In Memoriam
Please pray for the repose of the souls of our dearly departed, including Brenda Forck, grandmother of Matthew '20 and Benjamin Heizer '25.
We invite you to submit prayer requests, including any special intentions.
