This special day begins our Lenten journey. It is the start of 40 days of prayer, penance and almsgiving as we prepare ourselves to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday.
Like all those before us, we unhesitatingly embrace this invitation to sanctity, this time to turn away from sin. We are part of that great cloud of witnesses who through all the ages have donned the ashes, publicly acknowledging that we are Christians, Christians who have sinned and seek to repent. We acknowledge that “we are dust and to dust we shall return.”

Fathers, alive or dead, deserve our utmost praise and thanks. Father’s Day, which is Sunday, June 20, gives us the opportunity to pray for our fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, stepfathers, and all the men who have nurtured us, taught us, and believed in us.
You may have your father’s name placed on the altar for all the Father’s Day Masses. Cards are available in the pews and at the church doors.
October 7, 2021 All day
The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of our Lady of the rosary is celebrated annually on October 7.
Praying the rosary as a family is a great tradition. It is hard to say an entire rosary properly, especially with younger children. Older kids, who may have never prayed the rosary before may also struggle. What's important is to develop a system that works for your family.
