Just want to let everyone know that Father White is feeling better. He isn't getting around well in the mornings so he is saying Mass in the evenings at the Rectory and covering the Mass intentions for the day. We are letting him get as much rest as he can so that he can celebrate this weekend's Masses. Thank you all for your prayers and concerns. We will keep you posted.
All the information you need to create an account is on the ParishSoft & My Home Church page tab above. If you have any problems or questions, call the rectory at 548-1616. Our staff will be happy to help you.

Finding Happiness in Marriage
Beloved is a video-based study program by the Augustine Institute that explores the true meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage. In twelve sessions, couples will discover the deepest spiritual, emotional, and practical realities of marriage through Scripture, Tradition, and Church teaching. They’ll see firsthand how to experience the wonder, mystery, and joy of this sacrament—from that first “I do” through the rest of their lives.Beloved sessions are presented on a 6-DVD set, and kits come complete with Couple’s and Leader’s Guides – everything you need to experience the full power of Beloved for a marriage preparation program.
There are a lot of great movies, books and audio talks on formed.org. All parishioners are encouraged to watch FREE with our parish subscription to Formed. Just visit formed.org.
