From our Pastor
March 19, 2017
It has been four years since the election of Pope Francis and we have lived through an extraordinary period of grace for our community.

We are looking for ministers of the Eucharistic for Sundays at Care 1

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.
