Children’s Liturgy Needs Your Help!

We are in urgent need of new volunteers for Children’s Liturgy of the Word at both the 8:30 and 11:00 Masses. High school students are welcome to help along with adults in the parish. Please contact Ann Sirianni for more information.

Course Correction

Sometimes it can seem like our path in life is to only focus on how to get ahead. Only help others if there’s something in it for us. Do whatever we can to gain fame and fortune. At the end of the day, it’s a pretty empty way to live.

But Jesus gives us a better way.

Instead of helping others to get appreciated, we can help them out of love. Instead of only trying to get ahead in life, we can work together to make life better for everyone.

It starts with humility.

Join us as this Fall as we all make a “Course Correction” and learn to be humble and selfless in our love for God and each other!
