As Gospel-centered people we aspire to be followers of  Jesus Christ, sharing our gifts, our energy and our vision of Church. Through our life in Word and sacraments we are nourished by the unfolding presence of grace—calling, inviting and challenging us into a deeper relationship with the Lord and with one another.

Papal Emblem


Almighty and everlasting God, have mercy upon Thy servant, Pope Francis, our Supreme Pontiff, and direct him, according to Thy loving kindness, in the way of eternal salvation; that, of thy gift, he may ever desire that which is pleasing unto thee and may accomplish it with all his might. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

       Our Father. Hail Mary.


Pope Francis graced us (the United States of America) with his presence September 22nd through the 27th.

Creator God -
​We thank you for Pope Francis and all the women and men
who, through their actions and words,
reflect Your love and care for us.
We ask Your blessing on Francis and his visit here.
We pray that You will keep him safe and well
as he spends these days with us.
Lord, we also pray that, through the power of Your Holy Spirit,
we are open to hear the message that Pope Francis brings to us.
We ask these things in the name of your Son, Jesus the Christ.  Amen​​​​​​

Mass will be celebrated keeping within national and diocesan guidelines: Seating will be marked so as to maintain the 6 foot recommended social distance.  Due to the 6 foot safe distance requirement, seating capacity will be reduced in the church.  “Overflow” seating will be available in the Parish Life Center (PLC) with 5:30pm and 7:30am & 9am Mass being live streamed to the center.   A Host minister will administer communion to parishioners in the PLC. Please stay home if you are feeling ill. As Bishop Vetter stated, “It’s so important that you  realize that the Sunday obligation is still suspended for you. It is so important, if you are vulnerable, to stay at home- if you are elderly, if you are just not comfortable yet, don’t come. Come only when you are ready.”  

Parking Announcement  Parishioners are asked to utilize the parking spaces on our church property. If none are   available, you are asked to use the angle parking that surrounds our property. Handicapped parking spaces are reserved for those parishioners with permits and physical challenges. The use of all parking spaces will be much more convenient when the new building project is completed.
