    We are all called to be holy. Join Father Bill on Monday, October 15th at 7:30 PM in the rectory for a presentation on Pope Francis's exhortation on our common call to holiness, Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad). Pope Francis says that his goal in writing this document is to help everyone hear the call to holiness in his or her particular situation in  life. He proposes a practical pathway that takes into account the risks, challenges and opportunities that lie before us.

    Our Faith Formation Programs for children and teens are based on the belief that God calls us "to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with our God". Our main goal is to help the children know how much God loves them, to help them develop a strong personal relationship with Jesus and enable them to discover the richness of our Catholic faith.
    We are looking for assistance with our programs. Sharing your love of God and your faith with the young people of our parish can be a very rewarding experience.
