He is risen! Alleluia!


We're still roaring through Easter with St. Mark the Lion, St. Louis de Montfort, and St. Catherine of Siena.


Don't forget to stop by and grab a deal or a cookie at the Ladies Guild Garage Sale on Thursday.


Sunday May 1st we have 1) Our CRS Food Collection and 2) The Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. It's suppressed (Sunday takes precedence), but we have some articles and videos on St. Joseph and what the Church truly teaches about labor.


Here is your weekly update on what's going on in the parish.

St. Mark the Evangelist


Happy Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist! Patron of Notaries and Venice and is symbolized by a Lion.


Biggest claim to fame? Wrote the shortest Gospel. But it was a bumpy road.

St. Louis De Monfort.jpg

St. Louis de Montfort


Happy Feast of St. Louis de Montfort! He is best known for his love of Jesus by offering his life to Him through our Blessed Mother Mary.


Known as Consecration to Mary, this entrustment has lead many souls to Jesus but also generated controversy over the years.

Learn the truth about Consecration and how it can help you here.

St. Catherine of Sienna.jpg

St. Catherine of Siena


Think an illiterate girl devoted to loving Jesus can't make a difference? Think again. St. Catherine of Siena was a giant of the Middle Ages and saved the papacy by convincing Pope Gregory XI to leave French influenced Avignon and return to Rome.

Third Sunday of Easter

Some Thoughts for Reflection

St. Joseph the Worker


This year, the Feast of St. Joseph the worker on May 1st is impeded because it falls on a Sunday. (And every Sunday is a mini-Easter, so it supersedes most other feasts.)


But that doesn't stop us from reflecting on God's plan for human labor and the wonderful example of it He gave us through St. Joseph.

May Day: the Socialist Worker vs. St. Joseph the Worker

May Day has all sorts of historically varied meanings and traditions among various groups, including Catholics. Since the late 19th century, however, May 1 has been particularly known for its association with workers - particularly, its appropriation if not exploitation by socialists and communists.

Refuting a Catholic Case for Communism

While Dettloff makes a passing reference to communist persecution of the Church, he never explains in detail the torture, imprisonments, exiles, forced labor, mass famines, and systematic murders communists have unleashed against humanity and especially against Christians throughout the 20 th century. In 1922 the Soviet Union murdered twenty-eight Eastern Orthodox bishops and more than 1,200 priests.

Let There Be No Quarrell Between Our Tounges and our lives.jpg

"Let us praise him not only with our voices, though, but also with our behavior. Let our tongues praise him, our lives praise him; let there be no quarrel between our tongues and our lives, but let them share an infinite charity."


-St. Augustine
