It’s HERE! LEGACY-Winter 2018

Dive into our latest issue of Legacy! The Liturgy is central to all that we are and this issue provides an inside look at the wonder and awe that is evident each time we gather together to worship.  Each article is written from the perspective of a Liturgical Minister, even those in the pews.  After all the liturgy is not complete without the participation of everyone!  Enjoy this wonderful introspective point of view.

Advent Giving Tree

Beginning the weekend of November 18th our parish Advent Giving Tree will be present in the church.  We ask you to support this program.  This year, we will support the Pope Francis Center with donations of hand warmers and socks.  These vital necessities are so important for surviving in the cold winter weather. No need to take a tag or wrap your gift.  Please place all donations in the collection box next to the tree.  Thank you for your generosity.
