SINCERE GRADITUDE – Sincere gratitude to our parish family members, many of whom support the Church generously. There is an old saying that, “Many hands make light work”. So if everybody does their fair share no body will be over loaded.  Again, Thank You, FR. Ruane


MARDI GRAS – The Knights of Columbus will be preparing their favorite dish red beans and rice on fat Tuesday the night before Ash Wednesday. This will take place approximately at 6:30pm to 7:00pm Tuesday, right after the 6:00pm Mass.

Please Note: Parishioners are encouraged to bring salads and if the children don’t like red beans and rice, hot dogs will be provided. 


R.C.I.A. – The RCIA class will meet this Tuesday immediately after the 6:00pm Mass.

Topic: The Holy Eucharist; A very important class for those who have recently joined the Church or anybody for that matter that might want to attend.  


CHOOSE LIFE - Writing in the world’s most prestigious bioethics journal, Hastings Center Report (2007),  Brown University professor Jacob M. Appel argues that assisted suicide should not only be available to the terminally ill, but also to people with a “purely psychological disease” if the suicide person “rationally might prefer dignified death over future suffering.” As with abortion, euthanasia advocates started small and are now gradually expanding the “right” they advocate.   (NRL News, 8/07)
