From our Pastor
|May 21, 2017
This Thursday, May 25th is Ascension Day, the fortieth day of
Easter. On this day the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven
and took His seat at the right hand of God the Father, the
Almighty. The early community in Jerusalem spent the next
nine days after the Ascension awaiting the outpouring of the
Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit of God’s love and mercy that fills
the community of the Church with countless gifts and blessings.
As baptized Christians we pray in the power of the Holy
Spirit and we are consecrated people, sacred to God. Continue on the Pastor's Page

Having trouble hearing in Church?
Hearing Assistance Devices are available in the rear of the Church.
The devices cannot be used outside the Church, as they are connected
to our Church public address system.
The hearing devices are used by many at daily
and Sunday Masses and other Liturgical Celebrations.
PLEASE be sure to return them to the box at the
back of the Church and also be certain to turn the
switch OFF before placing them back into the box.
