Last fall it was determined our church needed a new lower roof, new upper roof, a new furnace and air conditioning unit for the Parish Center and tuck pointing for the steeple. Estimated costs are approximately $95,000.

The lower roof and furnace and AC repairs have been completed with the rest of the work beginning in the spring.

We need your help to help finance this work.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners

 

"Do not abandon yourselves to despair.

We are the Easter people and Hallelujah is our song."

 Saint John Paul II

 

“To those who have been away...come back…

Christ Himself is waiting for you.

He will heal you; and you will be at peace with God.”

Mother Teresa

WATCH NOW ON FORMED

Olivia Hussey illuminates the life story of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the selfless missionary who brought hope, love and salvation to the poorest of the poor. The movie examines the fundamental moments of Mother Teresa's life from her childhood in Albania in the 1920s to her first calling as a nun, the decision to leave her order and live with the poorest of the poor, the vicissitudes of founding the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity, and her great work of service in Calcutta and the rest of the world.
