Questions or concerns?  Religious Ed @ 964-9878,or,


Families often  struggle with the kind and number of Christmas presents to give. Sometimes that special gift requested by a child or relative is just not in the budget this year. Pope Francis has a suggestion taken from Scripture….give, really give, a work of Mercy. WARNING: The cost may be a sacrifice of your time, patience and pride . Listed below are some of the choices for presents this Christmas, presents that are priceless gifts.

Corporal Works of Mercy:


To feed the hungry

To give drink to the thirsty

To clothe the naked

To welcome the stranger

To heal the imprisoned

To bury the dead


Spiritual Works of Mercy:

To counsel the doubtful

To instruct the ignorant

To admonish sinners

To comfort the afflicted

To forgive offenses

To bear patiently with those who do us ill

To pray for the living and the dead


Adult Confirmation will be offered this coming year for any parishioner who was unable to complete the Sacraments of Initiation( Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation)
