Mask use in our parish church is optional but recommended. Masks are recommended in order to protect the more vulnerable in our community, like children and those with compromised immunities. If you are sick in any way or even feeling a little “under the weather,” please stay home! Our concern is for your good health and the good health of those in the pews around you. Thank you.

November 26: Thanksgiving Day

Giving thanks is an integral part of our Catholic faith. The Scriptures are filled with passages urging us to give thanks for the gifts God has bestowed upon us—”Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever” (Psalm 118,1) and The Ten Lepers (Luke 17,11f) are two such examples.

November 24: Feast of St. Andrew Dung-Lac & Companions

During his papacy, Pope John Paul II canonized a group of 117 martyrs who died for the Roman Catholic Faith in Vietnam during the nineteenth century. The group was made up of ninety-six Vietnamese, eleven Spaniards, and ten French. Eight of the group were bishops, fifty were priests, and fifty-nine were lay Catholics. Today’s Feast […]

The Oxford English Dictionary has 231,000 entries. It has been said that at least a fifth of them are obsolete. They range from “aa,” which is a stream or waterway (try that in Scrabble), to “zymome,” which is the part of gluten which is insoluble in alcohol. One other word which has apparently become obsolete […]
