When people think of the miracle of Fatima, they might only think of the wonder of the appearance of Our Lady to the three children of Fatima or the miracle “dance” of the sun that took place to confirm the word of the children. Throughout Fatima’s history, however, there have been a multiplicity of phenomena, cures and healings.  The following testimony is a summary account recorded in the book, “Vision of Fatima.” For full story, see book.

Ministry of Acolyte

Posted on May 19, 2017 in: General News

On May 11 our own Tim Michaelree was installed into the Ministry of Acolyte. This is the last formal ministry prior to ordination. With God’s grace Tim will be ordained a Deacon next spring. As an acolyte you will most visibly be seeing Tim in a different role. His focus in the next year will be moving from serving in the ministry of lector to assisting at the Sacrifice of the Mass (altar preparation, purification of the sacred vessels, etc.) serving as Eucharistic Minister at all Masses he is assisting at and in other ministerial roles throughout the year. During this last year of formation Tim will be working with ...

In the message for this 54th World Day of Prayer for Vocations, the Pope reflects on the missionary dimension of our Christian calling.  The Holy Father says that “commitment to mission is not something added on to the Christian life as a kind of decoration, but is instead an essential element of faith itself.

Dear Parishioners, I sit at my desk thinking of the events of last weekend. I am so very thankful for all of our volunteers who make our dinner so successful. I was delighted to see a great mix of long term and new parishioners and young and older parishioners. In particular I was happy to see a number of our parents with the children working at our dinner. I can think of no better example of service than when we are able to serve one another as a family of faith. So many people work behind the scenes to make our dinner possible. I thank God for the witness of faith, service and community that all of you provide. As ...

Dear Parishioners, As you read this we are either preparing for or well under way into our Spring Sausage Dinner! We hope for good weather, generous patrons and hard working volunteers!  Events like our Sausage Dinners are a lot of work and can be tiring, but it is the best kind of tired that we can experience. We give ourselves in service to our community, working alongside people who share our faith and love of the Lord. As His disciples we tire ourselves out in service to Him and our neighbors. I can’t think of a better way to feel exhausted and yet content at the same time. My thanks to all the members...
