Sign-Ups Have Begun!

Our Inaugural Pastoral Region Photo Directory

Is "In the Works"

 

It seems like just yesterday that our 50th Anniversary

Photo Directory was published, but it's already time for our next one - and this will be extra-special because it will be

a joint effort with our sister parish, St. Vivian!

 

To make this project a success, we need your help...

 

  • If you have pictures of parish ministries, programs, or events, please contact Toni about how to submit them.

 

  • Sign up for your FREE, NO PRESSURE photo session, which will earn you a FREE 8x10 and a FREE photo directory. Photo sessions will be March 9-12 & 16-19.  

    • Using the code you received in the mail in early January, you can sign-up at UCDir.com, OR 

    • You can sign-up in the lobby after Masses between January 9 and February 14.

Questions? Contact Toni.

Jubilee Year of Mercy

December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016

 

"We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace.

Our salvation depends on it...

 

At times we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives."

~ Pope Francis, in the Bull of Indiction

for the Year of Mercy

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Our New Bell System Is Ready!

 

Many thanks to the super-generous parishioner who has stepped forward to cover the cost of replacing our bell system! 

 

Listen for the "peal" 5 minutes before Mass, the Angelus at noon and 6 PM, and special songs in honor of feasts and holidays. You will be impressed by the beautiful sounds of

this system!

The Perfect Resource for Busy People

Get FORMED!

 

This is your gateway to the best Catholic videos, books

and audio talks! It's a free gift to you from the parish and

can be accessed by any internet device - at any time and

any place that fits your schedule.  FORMED has something

for everyone!

Remembering Your Loved One

 

Consider having the red sanctuary candle by the

tabernacle lit "in honor of" or "in memory of" your loved

one. The suggested donation would be $5, and the candle would burn for one week. Your loved one would be

mentioned in the bulletin and during the weekend

intentions. If you are interested, contact Joanne at the

parish office (522.3680).

We've adopted a seminarian!

We also give thanks for and pray for seminarians Matt Humerickhouse, Matt Zwilling, and Zachary Coulter who

have been working with our Pastoral Region's RCIA

programs.

Headed the Right Way?

 

If you've been away from Christ and/or His Church

and are ready to turn your feet

and your life back to Him,

we would love to help you

take those important steps!
