Our Increased Offertory Program Commitment Sunday is this weekend at all Masses. We encourage all parishioners to complete and turn in your commitment cards to the church. The Commitment Card contains information on how to plan your increased offertory gift to the church, and asks for your commitment over the next year. If you have any questions regarding this program, or how to give electronically, please contact the parish office.

Father David is teaching an eight-week series of adult classes on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. These classes are held in our parish hall on Thursday evenings from 6:30 until 7:30, followed by an opportunity for questions. In this series, Father will focus on some catechism topics that are particularly relevant to Catholics in their routine daily living. Attend one, or some, or all . . . each class features a new subject matter. Tomorrow night, Father’s topic will be “The Occult and Exorcism”.
