Congratulations to all of our Confirmation Candidates who will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in a special Mass on Sunday April 25 at 3:00 pm.  It has been my honor to work with each of them and their families throughout their journey, even as odd as this year has been!  I have had the pleasure of meeting with each of our candidates individually over the past few weeks, and their prayers, stories, questions, and thoughts have been wonderful.  These students are not the future of our parish community, but the NOW of our parish community!  I look forward to seeing how God will use each of their gifts to spread hope and light in their families, with their friends, and in the community.  They are a blessing!  Come, Holy Spirit!

Our CFC Year for grades 7-10 has officially ended, but the learning never stops!  Information about classes for next year, including Confirmation,  will come out in May.  Parents are the number one teachers of faith, and there is no better way to teach it than to model it in your family.  Attending Mass together, praying together as a family, watching a movie about a great saint, or celebrating a feast day are just some of the ways to celebrate faith in your home.  Feel free to give me a call or stop in and visit if you’d like to talk about more ways to keep growing in faith! 

Attention ALL SENIORS!  The end is near!  You only have a few weeks left of your high school career, and we want to celebrate and pray with you!  On Tuesday May 25 at our 5:45 pm Mass, we will be honoring all High School Seniors at a Baccalaureate Mass.  Baccalaureate Masses are intended especially to celebrate graduating students, and dates back to the 1300s.  Mercifully, the Mass will not go on for four hours, nor will graduates be required to give a homily, but we do hope you will join us!  All are welcome and no RSVP is required.
