Coupons for Hero’s

Our very own 5th Grade Faith Formation Students are collecting Manufactured Coupons for the Military Overseas to allow them to use the coupons for items they purchase in their commissaries. This small effort helps them tremendously. Please place the coupons in the box at the entrance of the church. Way to go 5thGraders. God Bless!!!

Children’s Mass

Beginning in March of 2020 the Children’s Mass will be celebrated at the 9:30am Mass every second Sunday of the month. The Mass Intention will remain as “For the Parish Family” but the homily will be geared toward the children. Father wants to try this new time slot to see how it goes. January and February Children’s Mass will still be celebrated at 11:00am. He hopes making it earlier might bring in an even greater number of young people for Mass. We wish him much success…..
