Are you grieving from an Abortion? Trust in the mercy of God’s love. Consider these words from St. John Paul II to those suffering be-cause of abortion: “The church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your de-cision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision.

But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope….The Father of mercies is ready to give you His forgiveness and His peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. You will com...

All of us are looking to live the Catholic life as richly and joyfully as we can. There are plenty of us who need a little help, or maybe some “catchup” to come to Catholic practice or to receive the sacraments. We have a way to catch up called the R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). It is flexible and easy to take. What is required is an open heart and open mind, some of your time, and good will. If you want to talk about Catholic practice and the R.C.I.A., contact us at the parish office. We can get you started.

Recall that in order to protect your privacy (HIPAA rules), it is no longer a regular practice for healthcare facilities to notify your church or priest that you are in the hospital unless directly instructed to do so by you or your family. Yet we know how important it is for you to have spiritual and sacramental support while hospitalized. Here are some things you can do: Have someone, a family member or friend, to give us call beforehand, so we know when you will be in the hospital. During the admission process, be sure to provide both your religion and the name of your church. If the hospital fails to ask this q...
