This past week everyone should have received their annual parish financial report. This report is an attempt to sum up, in just a few pages, all the financial activity of the past year, as well as the hope for the upcoming 12 months. It is always difficult to decide which [...]


First of all I would like to welcome back any of our church family who may have been gone for all or part of this summer. I hope each of you had restful days and the opportunity to enjoy vacations and time spent with family and friends. This past spring [...]

Investing in Our Relationship With God
