Bulletin Help

As we shared earlier due to supply issues beyond our control, we are now producing our church bulletin in house. It takes a team of volunteers to get this done on a weekly basis. We are glad to be receiving many compliments on the new bulletin format. We are needing ads to help offset the costs of the bulletin. We are looking for someone to assist with this project. If you have skills or experience in acquiring advertising and/or designing ads your gifts are needed. Call or email the church office. If you would like to have an ad for your business in the bulletin, please let us know that as well.

We invite you to participate in the Anointing of the Sick Mass which will be celebrated on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00PM, our next Mass is on June 7th.  One may wonder what illnesses are considered serious enough to receive the Anointing of the Sick. Any physical, mental or spiritual problem are reasons to come receive the healing touch of the sacrament of the sick.  For more info call the parish office during normal office hours.
