Visit the beaconsaoc.org website to stay informed. We are the Northwest Region #5 with 7 churches: St. Mary's, St. Denis, Holy Family, Immaculate Conception, St. Remy, North Star and Osgood. We should have 3 priests available for our area and we will know who they are in February or March. Keep praying for our good and holy priests.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Blessed chalk is available this week at the entrance to the Church for your Epiphany house blessings. Father Matt is available to bless your home. Please call the office 937-548-1616 to schedule a time for him to come by this week. Due to the number of parishioners, this will have to be a short visit.

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.
