Please continue your church support. Church envelopes can be mailed or dropped off in the drop box outside the parish offices. Too, the opportunity for online giving is available via our website

The church is open for prayer each day of the week from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Please come spend time with our Lord.

If you are looking for spiritual reading materials, the parish library is a great resource. It is found in the Gathering Space by the Conference Room.

A good resource for daily Mass is wordonfire.org.

Formed.org has movies, books and podcasts for the whole family. If you don’t have a Formed.org account, please go to our website. On the second slider, click Formed.org and follow the steps to set up an account.

Little white books for the Easter season are available for pick up in the Gathering Space.

In light of the Diocese’s current suspension of public Masses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fact that a majority of readers receive their copy of The Courier when attending Mass at their parish, the decision has been made to suspend physical publication of our diocesan newspaper until such time as parishioners are able to gather again for public worship. The Courier will remain available in its online format at www.dowr.org.

Rice Bowls can be dropped off in the Gathering Space.

Little White Books for the Easter season are available in the Gathering Space.

The Giving Tree from Lent is still taking food. Stop by and drop off non-perishable food items or take a label, purchase and drop off specific food items. There is a need at this time so thanks for your generosity.

Being, for some, lonely and difficult times, if anyone is in need of a phone call from the parish, please reach out by contacting the parish office. We are here to provide support.
