I wish to thank so many people who helped to make this weekend with Encounter Ministries a success.  It was a beautiful experience of God's healing power that is still alive in the church, and I was happy to stay up way past my bedtime for it.  If you would like more information on how God is working through the prayers of the Body of Christ to bring healing (physical and psycho-spiritual) to people, please look into the work of our parish's Healing Prayer ministry. 

This is being written before the Encounter School of Healing and Healing Service that took place on Friday and Saturday. It is our fervent prayer that a great movement of the Holy Spirit was unleashed by the weekend and that many fruits will grow in our parish and in all who attended.
           

In October, the Outreach Program provided $6,632.26 in assistance to 38 families for 45 accounts. That was a decrease from September in support provided although an increase in accounts covered. At the same time, we had the highest number of calls for any month in 2019 – 260 total.

All are invited to attend a 3 part series of talks by Fr. Ed Ondrako on St. John Henry Cardinal Newman.

Our parish Disciple Maker Index Survey will provide you the opportunity to reflect on your own spiritual growth and provide feedback on the efforts of the parish to help you grow. The survey should take you between 10-15 minutes to complete.

Take the Survey

The Disciple Maker Index survey is now live.  We are trying as a parish to get it completed as soon as possible.  There is a three week window for us to complete this survey.  Please go to the parish website and find the link to the 10-15 minute survey. This will really help our parish to adapt to the needs of the people of God as well as prepare for the current projections of our future. If you need a paper copy, you can find them in the office during regular hours (or at weekday Mass).
