Happy Easter!
April 17, 2022

“Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here. He has been raised!” (Luke 24:1-2) As we celebrate the great joy of Easter, the words above are worth pondering.

Catholic Home Missions Appeal
April 24th Second Collection

Many dioceses across the U.S. face the challenge of accessibility and high poverty rate. The faithful of these diocese assist each other in creative ways to form disciples. When you participate in the Catholic Home Missions Appeal, you become a neighbor to Catholics to these home mission dioceses that benefit from the collection. You can share your monetary gifts next weekend at Mass or you can donate online here. Please select "Second Collection" and look for this specific cause.
Divine Mercy

The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.  Read More...
