News Update

“I have proclaimed an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy as a special time for the Church,
a time when the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective.”
- Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus 
  • Ash Wednesday, February 10th 8am & 7pm Masses

  • The Annual Fish Fry begins on Friday, February 12th. Volunteers are always needed to assist in serving, and of course, to bring desserts for the Dessert Table by Friday afternoons. 
  • CROSS of MERCY:  A large cross will be in the Gathering Space during Lent. Small slips of paper will be provided for you to share your expressions of mercy to others or how mercy has been extended to you. After writing it down, you can roll it up, tie it with a ribbon, and place it in the cross. You may do this as often as you like. Our goal is to fill this cross with your “Mercy Moments” and to share these stories with others.
  • LENTEN MINI-SERIES: Tuesday evenings during Lent, Fr. Bill celebrates Mass at 7 pm.  Following Mass Donna Eder and Cathy Guinan will be offering a series of mini sessions. This year the theme will be “Mercy in our Ministries.”  We will study an overview of the parish and examine all of the various ministries involved.  We will connect these ministries to the Jubilee Year of Mercy.  Please join us.
