Catholicism Series Continues: The second session of Fr. Barron’s “Catholicism Series” starts the week of February 3rd and runs for six sessions, skipping the week of March 3rd (Spring Break). If you were not a participant in the Fall sessions and would like to join a group, email [email protected], and we will try to fit you into a group.


March for Life Vigil: Because the presidential inauguration falls on the anniversary of the   Supreme Court’s decision to legalize all abortions, the day of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. will be Friday, January 25th, instead of January 22nd. So our annual prayer vigil on the eve of the march will be Thursday, January 24th, beginning at 7:00pm. Thursday evening confessions will follow the prayer vigil at around  7:30/7:45pm.


Volunteers Needed:  We are almost out of altar servers for the 7:30 am Sunday Mass.  We are now recruiting adults to train to serve the Mass.  This is for men and women.  You will not wear a robe like the youth, just dress up nicely.  If you wish to help out in this way, please call the parish office or let me know.  Thank you.


Adult Presentation: On Monday, January 28th, Msgr. Lockard will offer a presentation on “The New Evangelization - Key to the Year of Faith.”  This will begin at 7:00pm and last for about one hour with a time for Q and A and discussion.  I hope to see you there!


It’s “Weeks Month”:  January is a month of special weeks; namely January 13th through 19th was the Week of Prayer for Vocation Awareness; Jan. 18th through 25th is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, and Jan. 27th through Feb. 2nd is Catholic Schools Week. We will celebrate the last at the 9:30am Mass next Sunday. School students and faculty will carry out various ministries at that Mass. Please remember all these special intentions in your prayers.


Thank You! To all who helped with the 9th grade Confirmation retreat last Saturday. And please keep all of our high school students who are preparing to receive the sacrament -  remotely or proximately - in your prayers.
