Lent is just around the corner
Pope Francis says, in his 2017 Lenten message,
“This season (Lent) urgently calls us to conversion. Christians are asked to return to God ‘with all their hearts’ (Joel 2:12), to refuse to settle for mediocrity and to grow in friendship with the Lord.”
~ Pope Francis, excerpt Lenten Message 2017*

We are excited to announce that our parish has subscribed to a dynamic new online platform called FORMED. You’ll find video programs that explain the Catholic faith, explore the deepest meaning of marriage, receive Bible studies on a variety of topics and inspiring audio talks. It truly is the Catholic faith on demand. Learn how to get FORMED!
Our Christian Stewardship Series teaches about sharing your gifts of time, talent, and treasure, and the importance of embracing stewardship as a way of life. Our Stewardship Ministry has developed a variety of resources to educate and inspire you, including our weekly Stewardship Corner.
In the spring, we invited you to make commitments to prayer, sacraments, and ministry participation, and now we ask you to pledge financial support that is proportionate to the gifts God has provided to each of you. You can find resources to help you here.
As we all are inspired to make stewardship a way of life, we will experience joy and blessings individually and as a parish community. Please keep our parish in your daily prayers as we strive to passionately share the Gospel of Jesus with the community around us and to nourish our parish family through Eucharist, formation and service.
