This year, we invite those who have lost loved ones within the past year to participate in a memorial candle lighting at the 5:30pm Mass on November 2. If you have lost a loved one within the past year, please contact the office at 471-2449, as soon as possible. There will be a reception following the Mass with heavy hors d’oeuvres and adult beverages.
If you would like to have someone remembered at the Masses during November, please pick up one of the envelopes in the church, fill it out and place it in the collection or drop by the parish office during the week.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a program through which adults are prepared for Baptism or full initiation into the Roman Catholic Church. It involves several stages, each intended to assist one in knowing the truth of the Roman Catholic Faith and the practices of her Faithful.
Classes will meet in the Sarto Center each Tuesday, beginning September 27 from 6 PM to 7:30 PM. For registration or additional information, please take a brochure located at the church entrance or call the church office. 471-2449
Beginning Wednesday and Thursday, May 18 - 19, we start a study of The Book of Isaiah. The great Doctor of the Church, St. Jerome, tells us “...this great book of Scripture...contains all the mysteries of the Lord… Whatever is a proper to Holy Scripture, whatever can be expressed in human language and understood by the human mind, is contained in this book of Isaiah.
There are two course options:
1. The basic study option is simply to read about two chapters weekly and watch the 20-minute DVD pastoral lecture. No other books to read. No questions to answer. No discussion participation required. No cost.
2. The in-depth study option goes beyond the basic study and uses the study text by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. This has additional reading, study questions and participant discussion. You get as much from the study as you put into the study.
The weekly sessions are in the Sarto Center at these two times:
- Wednesday evenings at 6:30
- Thursday mornings at 9:00 ( after the 8 a.m. Mass and Rosary)
You do not have to commit to any option. Come to any session at any time and participate how much or as little as you want.
The study begins Wednesday evening May 18 and Thursday morning May 19. There will be no session Wednesday May 25 due to school graduation.
