Give a spiritual prayer for Christmas

We have candle gift cards that you can send/give to a loved one, friend, or someone who needs prayers. A single 6-day candle is $5. For an entire month the cost is $25. When giving your donation use the candle envelope in the back of the church. Paired with it, take the candle card to give as a gift.  In addition to the name on the candle envelope please specify a start date if you would like the church to light the candle(s) in front of Jesus or Mary for you on a future date.

Please remember the sick of the parish and their family & friends. May God’s healing power be upon them.

 Rectory Heat

Bishop John has graciously loaned our parish $8,500 from the Parishes Together Fund to have a forced air heating system installed in the rectory. This replaces the corroded and fire damaged boiler. The Bishop has approved a $1,500 insurance deductible payment to the parish from the general fund. God grant Bishop John Kudrick and the members of the Parishes Together Board peace, health & happiness for many years!
