We have concluded the Bottles for Babies Fundraising Campaign.  Thank you for bringing your bottle back from home and filing it with cash, checks, coins and prayers to support the good work of Elizabeth’s New Life Center.  Continue to pray for the Center and the work they do with women and families.  


It’s National Vocations Awareness Week this week, November 4 - 10!  As Catholics, we firmly believe that God has a plan for our lives. He calls some to marriage, some to the priesthood, and others to religious life.  Some remain as generous single people.

Fully living our own vocations - and teaching young people how to discern God’s call - is a serious duty, but also a joyful one.  Please pray about how God is calling you to live your vocation more deeply. Encourage the young people in your life, children, grandchildren, students, and friends, to be open if God calls them to priesthood or consecrated life.  


Our November monthly Family Night is almost here!  At our parish school of religion Family Nights are evenings when we have a special activity that children share with their  parents.

Our November 14 Wednesday night session families will attend Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and the liturgy of Benediction. We will begin adoration before the Blessed Sacrament at 6:30 pm.  Our time will include prayer, praise, song, a Gospel reading and homily from Deacon Tom Graber. We will conclude our time before the Blessed Sacrament with Benediction. In adoration and the ancient liturgy of Benediction, the assembly is blessed with the actual, real and physical presence of the Divine. Only one word, wow.  Come and see.

Also at Benediction, fourth graders will receive Sacred Heart Badges on Wednesday, November 14.  Students at Saint Mary’s School will receive their badges during Benediction in the afternoon. Students at Saint Mary’s Parish School of Religion will receive their badges during Benediction in the evening.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 5 at 6:30 pm for all students in the Parish School of Religion.  We have several children receiving the Sacrament for the first time. Please pray for them and their families.

Parents are invited to celebrate the sacrament with us. There will be several priests visiting with us to hear confessions.  The sacrament is available until all are heard. Come celebrate the joy of reconciliation!
