Flea Market Success

Again, this year, our very, very dedicated and tireless staff of volunteers managed to out-do themselves by staging, arguably, the most successful, professional, and impressive Flea Market in the surrounding areas! Through their intensive expenditures of time and labor they managed to transform the donations of countless, various items into over $22,200.00 for our parish operations!! Thank you to EVERYONE who contributed in any way, be it by working, donating items, or purchasing, to the continued success of our famous Flea Market!

MARY’S!!!

Open School Registration

If you are looking for a quality Catholic Education, our school is top notch! You will find forms and information here.

Registration is Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
