Welcome to our joint parish website!

Come to Mass

            I would like to invite everyone to MASS. I urge you to receive God’s mercy in the Sacrament of Confession and to attend Mass. It is very important for us to participate in the sacrifice of the Mass and be strengthened and nourished by the receiving the very Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ in the holy Eucharist.

As Bishop Donald Hying has stated, “We can never forget that, on the last night of His earthly life, as Jesus faced betrayal, arrest, mockery, torture, and the Cross, He was thinking of us, not Himself. At the Last Supper, the Lord wanted to give us the most profound, enduring, intimate, and saving expression of His love for us; wanting to remain with us always, He gave us Himself in the most Holy Eucharist. This Blessed Sacrament is the greatest gift the Lord could have offered us; as St. John Vianney reminds us if God had something better or greater to give us, He would have given us that.” He also gave us the sacraments so that we may know god’s grace and to seek his mercy and forgiveness for our sins.
