“The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration. In all its activities the parish encourages and trains its members to be evangelizers.”

125th Anniversary Book
Please call or e-mail Deacon John Feeley with ads for the 125th Anniversary book. The committee is trying to have everything ready for printing by July 5. Deacon John will be in the vestibule after all masses this weekend, 6/24 - 25, and next, 7/1 - 2, to scan precious family photos to be included in memorial ads. You can also e-mail your messages of congratulations and any photos to johnjfeeleyjr@aol.com. You will be sent a copy of the finished ad before we go to press. These ads will be included in all 800 copies of our large, fully illustrated 125th anniversary book. The book will be available at the Anniversary dinner dance on November 4, 20017 and the following weeks of our anniversary year.
