Ordinary Time

Parish Survey Committee


This weekend, we attended a very informative presentation from Mr. Gary Voight about our survey results from 2015 and how our parish survey committee is preparing our "Mission Readiness Statement" that will be submitted to the Archdiocese in September.


Please see the Power Point slides that Mr. Voight prepared.  Everyone is welcome to attend the committee meetings, every Monday at 7:30PM.  Your input is important as we move forward as a parish!

Eucharistic Adoration

Enjoy the silence, and WISDOM:  A wise old owl lived in an oak.  The more he saw the less he spoke.  The less he spoke the more he heard.  Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?…English nursery rhyme
