Parish Census

Due to a recent computer issue, we have to recreate our parish database. The census form is available below or from the table in the foyer. Please, return the completed form to the rectory office or drop it in the collection basket. Thank you for your help.

Prayer Requests

You can now submit prayer requests, from our website, to our Parish Prayer Chain.

Prayer Branch

There is a branch in the church foyer which contains the names of our First Holy Communion children, Confirmation candidates, and RCIA adults. Please take a card from the branch and pray for them during Lent so they may become true Christians and soldiers of Christ.

Palm Collection

A basket will be available in the foyer of church throughout Lent to collect your palm from past years. Returned palm will be burned during the Easter Vigil.

Easter Flowers

If you would like to make a donation to the Easter flowers in the church, please use your Easter flower envelope (or a plain envelope) and drop it in the collection basket by April 9. Please print the name of the loved one on the back of the envelope.

It is a process by which uncatechized individuals and individuals Baptized in another Christian denomination learn about the Catholic Church. Catholic sponsors who are willing to share their faith experiences with new members and journey with them throughout the process are always needed. Those seeking to become Catholic may contact the Rectory at 814-944-8509.
