Are you looking for a reason to be positive about, and encouraged by, the Catholic faith?
If you posed this question to the average Catholic, there's a good chance they'd look a little puzzled and confess, "I don't know. I've never really thought about it."
written by the well known, national best-selling author Michael Leach. Leach joyfully explores and explains
25 really good reasons for Catholics to love their faith, live their faith, and ultimately share their faith.
From Mary to the Mass, from guardian angels to parish festivals, each chapter offers yet another often surprising reason for Catholics to rejoice—and rediscover their faith.
The 2021 Mass Book is open. This year we are offering the option of reserving Mass Intentions online. Click
to reserve an announced mass intention online.
There will be an opportunity to reserve masses using a paper form starting today. The green form can be found at the back of the church and should be returned to the rectory during business hours.
Prayer During Pandemic
May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake;
May we who have no risk factors remember those who are most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent;
May we who have the flexibility of care for our children when their school closes remember those who have no options;
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go;
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all;
May we who settle in for quarantine at home remember those who have no home; and
As fear grips our country, let us choose love during this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen

The good news is it will never, ever happen. But after all that we have been through over the last 5 months, we need to remember that we can’t take ourselves too seriously.
Sometimes a good laugh is the best medicine!
