10/29/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. From the reports that I am getting here at the hospital, it seems as if the carnival was a great success. I want to thank all of you who worked so hard to make the annual Halloween Carnival the success that it was. It was truly an example of what can happen when the entire parish community comes together to work for the good of the parish. The school’s PTO officers and the members of the Halloween Carnival committee did a great job in putting it all together and making sure that...

Please help make this year’s Halloween Carnival a success.

It takes a lot of hard work to make the carnival a positive experience for our children as well as raising necessary funds to support our parish school and our parish religious education program. Since tuition only brings in about one...

10/08/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. I made it home late yesterday with all 43 pilgrims. The trip was richly rewarding. We certainly did a lot in 12 days. We began in Paris with praying at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart which is located high on the hill of Montamartre.

10/01/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, By the time you read this, I and the other pilgrims, will have celebrated an early Mass at the shrine in Lourdes, had breakfast, boarded the bus and are heading for Spain. I prayed for all of you, but especially all of you who asked for prayers and those of you are suffering from some illness. Several of you are fighting cancer, and you were certainly in my prayers. I will also pray for you at the tomb of St. Theresa of Avila as well at the tomb of St. James the Apostle. Life certainly throws us some difficult curves! I...
