However, ushers do not always have the particular skills that are needed to stand at, or outside, the door to greet people warmly. So, we are inviting parishioners to take up thi...

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 t...

Dear Parishioners: Recently I postponed a scheduled parish pastoral council meeting (scheduled for Nov. 8) because events in our parish were happening faster than I could effectively bring them to the table for a calm "long view". I judged it better to keep you all informed first and very soon to enter into consultations. Her...
