Welcome to our joint parish website!

Our website is easy to use and is compatible with new devices like smart phones and tablets.

Our "Home" page provides a quick overview of what's happening in our Parish without requiring you to "dig" for our most current information.

Our Mass Schedule for the upcoming seven days is now available on every page of our website.

Parish events have been organized into our new Events Calendar.

You will also find information about our Faith in our new Ministries, Education, and Sacraments sections.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA):

Are you thinking about becoming Catholic?  Do you know someone who is interested in the Catholic faith? I would like to invite you or the person that you know to participate in our RCIA program.  The program is meant to give individuals an opportunity to learn about the Catholic Religion and Sacred Scripture, grow closer to God through prayer and ultimately receive the Sacraments and become a member of the Catholic Church.  If you are already Catholic and would like to be Confirmed, the RCIA program is also for you.  Please contact me at 994-2526 or Marcia Hampton at 994-2149 for more information about the RCIA program.


Respect Life Month:                        

The first Sunday in October is designated as Respect Life Sunday and the month of October is Respect Life Month.  Please take time to promote a culture of life in your families and communities.  Every life is a miracle from God.  Whether it lasts for a brief moment or for a hundred years, each of our lives is a good and perfect gift.  At every stage and in every circumstance, we are held in existence by God’s love.  Our relationships on earth are meant to help us and others grow in perfect love.  We are meant to depend on one another, serve one another, serve each other with humility, and walk together in times of suffering.  Every life is worth living.

There is an envelope in this week’s bulletin to support efforts to help vulnerable women and children and promote the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
