I have a lot of joy in seeing the work of our parish continue to thrive and develop.  I wish to thank all the people who have come forward with new ideas and programs for the betterment of our parish.  It is a blessing for me to see God working through all of us, for He indeed is always moving in new ways to guide us on the path to holiness and to eternity.  I'm excited about the book group that will be continuing to learn about our patroness.  I am grateful for the Marriage in Christ program which strengthens marriages in our parish to remain God-centered.  I encourage you all to regularly use the Formed.org website for its various media resources that can foster our faith and form our hearts, minds, and imagination.  And I am excited

I’d like to share three photos with you to summarize our trip to World Youth Day 2019 in Panama with Pope Francis.  First, of our entire group. The group becomes very close because we share everything together for a week straight, most especially our faith, our prayers, and our  hearts.

This is something that is frequently said, and probably sincerely meant by most people. We need to look deeper and with candor to determine whether it’s true or not.

God Bless all the dedicated volunteers who make casseroles for the Homeless Center clients! Your continued ministry is important, and additional volunteers are needed!
If you could spare the time every other month to prepare and deliver a casserole to the Homeless Center, your contribution would be gratefully welcomed and appreciated.

The Social Justice Commission meets on the second Monday of most months. At the December 2018 meeting, we discerned what areas we would focus on in 2019. Those were racism and poverty (primarily local poverty). We decided to work with Faith in Indiana St. Joseph County, which is affiliated with the statewide organization. Its purpose is to be an educational and advocacy group that promotes justice and opportunity in the local community.
