My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you! When a couple gets the exciting news that a baby is on the way, their hearts are filled with joy. For nine months, the mother must take special care of her body for whatever she eats or drink will have an effect on the baby. There is also a lot of time spent on making the physical preparation for the new arrival. As the birth date gets nearer, the excitement grows. It was the same for Mary and Joseph when Mary was pregnant with Jesus. But in the last days of her pregnancy,......

As Christmas and the end of the year approaches, let give thanks to God for what He has given to us by doing for others. It would be a great jester of Thanksgiving and Christmas generosity to make a contribution to our Parish School. Over half of the students that attend SSCM Parish School receive some sort of financial assistance. Please consider making a donation to help insure these students will be able to continue receiving a Catholic education. You can give online at ​sscmc.org or make checks payable to SSCM School....

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Every year the people of the United States take time out on Thanksgiving Day to remember those brave pilgrims who left the land of their birth and settled in North America.

A picture that comes to mind is the one of pilgrims and Native Americans sitting at the same table sharing a meal together. That tradition continues to this day with our families and friends. That is what......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! May the Peace of the Risen Lord be with you! For the past eight years we have daily prayed the Stewardship Prayer at the end of Mass, except for those Masses when we pray the Vocation Prayer. This prayer reminds us that God has given us charge of the many gifts that He has freely chosen to give us. We have prayed that we would be good stewards of all that God has given us. We know that a steward is one who has been put in charge of another person’s possessions.......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! May the Peace of the Risen Lord be with you! From the preliminary reports that I am getting, 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......
