All parishioners are reminded that the Parish Picnic will be celebrated on Sunday, August 9, 2015 in conjunction with our Feast Day. It begins at 1:00 pm with liturgy on the level field in the front of our sacred grounds. Some of the features of the picnic: (a) shade for everyone as we now have a larger tent; (b) the entire picnic on level ground for easy movement for all persons; (c) free food, games for the children, and music provided for the liturgy. We invite our wonderful “Dessert Makers” to bring their own delicious creations for all to sample! Mark this date for a Parish Family afternoon of fun and fellowship unlike any other.

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.
