Watch The Love Grow
This year, we are pleased to announce that we are once again reaching out to one of our own families. In December of 2014, the Mieszala family was hit with some devastating news when 8 year old Jake was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor called ganglioglioma. Jake has had some unfortunate symptoms and side effects present themselves that have restricted his mobility, breathing, and vision. Since being diagnosed, Jake has been through multiple surgeries, MRI’s, CT scans, and extended hospital stays. He now has at home medical equipment and is currently undergoing Chemotherapy. He has weekly physical and occupational therapies to regain strength.
Each week after the Masses during Advent, we will be accpeting donations to sponsor a red ornament which will be placed on the Church Christmast trees. For each $5 donated, an ornament will be placed on one of the trees.

Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process offered for adults to become full members of the Catholic Church. Those who never were baptized, were baptized in another Christian tradition, or who were baptized Catholic but who have not received First Communion or Confirmation are invited to join us for RCIA so that you may fully enter the Catholic Church. RCIA meets on Sunday mornings from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM. RCIA participants will receive the sacraments and become full members of the Church at the Easter Vigil on March 26, 2016.
