Why Catholic?...This fall, all parishioners will be participating in a program designed to strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ as well as give us a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith.


This nationwide program, called “Why Catholic?” will have parishes in 34 dioceses in the United States participating. The program is designed to teach us about the richness of our Catholic faith, to show each parishioner how to spread the Good News of Jesus, how to live our faith with enthusiasm and invite others to learn about the Good News of Jesus and the good news of our Catholic faith. Keep watching for more info.


WELCOME, NEWCOMERS! We welcome newcomers to our parish and we encourage those who are new in the parish to register as parishioners.  Newcomers with children are encouraged to register their children in the Parish School of Religion in August.  New parishioner registration forms can be found on the bulletin board in the vestibule or may be picked up at the Parish Rectory.  If you are a new parishioner and would like to receive church donation envelopes, please contact Karla or Fr. Ruane at 226-2490.   


                                                         WORTH WHILE QUOTES

1. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. John Wooden, (1910-, American Basketball Coach)                   

2. When people cease to believe in something, they do not believe in nothing; they believe in anything.

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

3. Even reason is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relationship to reality at all. G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

4. A woman is like a teabag: only in hot water do you realize how strong she is. Nancy Regan (b. 1923)


CHOOSE LIFE – “It is morally incoherent to say that abortion is wrong at some stages, and by some methods, but unacceptable at others. Human life is indivisible in its moral value. Either it is always and everywhere sacred, or it is always or everywhere disposable. There can be no middle ground.”  (Fr. Frank Pavone, Priests for Life)
