Give beautiful gifts that change lives around the world! Our annual Fair Trade sale will be held after Masses on Saturday and Sunday, November 23-24. Your purchase of fair-trade handcrafts, coffee, tea and chocolate helps our brothers and sisters create better lives for their families.
Looking for a holiday family service opportunity? Ring bells for the Salvation Army holiday collection! Ninety percent of the money collected stays in Marion County to help our neighbors in need; funds are distributed locally by Neighbor Helping Neighbor and the police department. Ten percent of the money is for used disaster relief. Last year our parish provided the second highest number of volunteers and volunteer hours, helping collect over $32,000! Volunteers are needed on November 26 and December 3, 17, and 23. Sign-up sheets and directions are on the bulletin board.
We strive to be a vibrant, welcoming and supportive community of Catholics, called by the Father through Baptism, fed by Christ in the Eucharist, and guided by the Spirit to deepen our relationship with God and lead others to Him through prayer, fellowship, service, learning, giving, and outreach to others.
Holy Hour of Adoration is held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
