Congratulations to parishioners Adan and James on their Secular Franciscan Profession of Faith! We are so blessed to have these two men in our community. They are kind, prayerful, and compassionate people who are always looking for ways to serve and help our Parish and our Parishioners. Those values are exactly in line with the Franciscans way of living that has had such a long history in our Parish. Congratulations and blessings on your continued journey!

Ways to support students at our parish school! (All Saints Catholic School)

Game Donations! Our Parish school, All Saints Catholic School, is looking to restock their board game collection for their Before and After School Childcare Program. If you are able to donate your favorite game, appropriate for age 5-12 (K-6th grade), please bring it to Mass and drop it in the donation box at the front of the church. The kids will be very appreciative of your generosity!

And – Sunday is a great day for popcorn!!  Cub Scout troop #349, associated with All Saint’s school, will be selling popcorn after the 9:00 am Mass on Sept. 30th.  Another chance to support students from our Parish school!
