Over 85 families from our Faith Formation and School gathered on Saturday, November 12th and Tuesday, November 19th to prepare for Advent. They learned about the many prophets and holy people of Advent. “John the Baptist” opened the evening with Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord. Special thanks to Jack Moffat for portraying John the Baptist. Every family made an Advent wreath together which Fr. Bob blessed before they went home. The parent session included a visit from our “Blessed Mother Mary” portrayed by Samantha Michel. She will repeat her reflective performance at our Feast of Immaculate Conception Mass on Monday, December 9th at 7pm.

Special thanks to the generosity of our parishioners which provided the supplies for the Advent wreaths.

On Saturday, October 5th our sixth grade Faith Formation students received Bibles from the parish to help them as they continue to learn about our Catholic faith. Our school children received their Bibles at the school Mass on October 18th which was the Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist.

When Fr. Bob gave out the Bibles he said, “Children we present you the gift of this Bible so that the story of God and God’s people may be with you at home, church, or wherever you shall choose to carry it. Enjoy reading how God is at work in nature and history. Learn about the life and teachings of Jesus. Be open to how God may continue to speak to you through your reading of the scriptures.” as part of the presentation.

On August 7th our parishioners gathered for a Prayer for Life created and led by our Youth Leaders at the Peace Pole. This year the young people chose the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary as a reminder of what we have to look forward to as disciples. Their intentions included all those impacted by the recent tragedies in California, El Paso and Dayton. The service concluded with a Litany of the Saints as we called upon their intercession so that the life and dignity of the human person is respected throughout our world.

Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our parishioners phase 2 of our bathroom renovations are taking place this summer. In 2018 the bathrooms on the first floor of our school were replaced. This summer we are completing the bathrooms on the ground and second floors. You can see the new stall doors in the picture. All of the sinks, toilets and urinals are being replaced. Water saving devices are part of the project too. Our parish’s Upon this Rock funds are being utilized for this project. Make sure you attend a Coffee Social in the fall so you can check out our new bathrooms on the ground floor!
