Bishop's Message on Lent

Bishop Lenten Message

Open House March 15 Pass the Word!

Little Ones Growing in Faith and Service!

Fr. Pat instructs the preschool children that we started Lent on Ash Wednesday. "And if you don't remember anything else, remember that Jesus loves you!"

The children did so well coming up to receive their ashes if they wanted to!

This is why we do what we do!

Children's Liturgy 10am Mass this Sunday!
