Lent's  Gift of Conversion - From Fr. Jim
This Lent may I suggest we pay some attention to what we do when we are angry, frightened, and soul weary; and determine if our default feelings lead to a response that is unhelpful, sometimes even destructive.  What then might our different response be? And why? First, anger fear and weariness are valid human emotions; there is nothing bad about them, without them we are surely emotionally challenged.  That said, they are emotions that often are sharp and full, they contain a great deal of electricity and power, and they are often used by others to harm or man...

Holy Week and Easter
Holy Week and Easter 2021 It will be Holy Week in less than 2 weeks and Easter in less than 3 weeks.  So where are we in terms of being open? Occupancy - Last year in late May, for your safety and to minimize the chance of spreading the virus, we configured the church to observe the mandates from the archdiocese. The calculated full number of attendees was 130.  With everyone’s cooperation we could raise that number to approximately 150, still limiting the size of the crowds allowed in church to halt the transmission of the virus and eventually bring t...

This is often difficult because of drought. We will build an underground reserve and pump to water the garden when there is no rain. The second need is for a delivery truck for DePaul Woodworking.

A Note From Fr. Jim

Posted on March 08, 2021 in: General News

A Note From Fr. Jim

We are still operating with a limited number of seats available for churchgoers.  When we reach our mandated limit, we will ask those who come later to either come to another Mass or to make use of the livestream on our parish website.  It is very helpful then to us if you arrive at least a little early, this allows ...
