The Missions ministry continues to collect travel size toiletries to make hygiene bags for the homeless. We are in great need of travel sized shaving cream, deodorant and dental floss. Collection bins are located in the Family Center next to the Information Booth and in the Chapel area of the Church.

As summer begins, many of our volunteers are gone and we really need your help and support to continue to have every weekend Mass staffed with liturgical ministers and ministers of welcome and hospitality. We are appealing to you to please step up to weekend ministry and serve as a greeter, a host minister, or help out in the Holy Grounds Cafe. Consider training to become an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Your service really DOES make a difference at our weekend Masses.  Simply submit a Ministry Interest Form and we will be glad to contact you! You can also CLICK HERE to download the form. Complete it, and drop it off at the Information Booth, the Parish Office or in the weekend collection basket. We look forward to hearing from you!


In addition to our Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Thursday evenings, we also have Adoration, Monday through Friday 8 to 8:50 AM.  All are welcome.


Stop by our Information Booth in the Family Center. Our friendly volunteers are available to assist you after the Sunday morning Masses. Our mobile cart is available after the Saturday 4:30 pm Mass and the Sunday 7:00 pm Mass.


In mid-August, the REBUILT book will be available to purchase for just $3.00.  We are taking names to reserve a copy of the book at the Information Booth.  This is a special purchase offer and we were able to order 300 copies.  RESERVE YOUR COPY TODAY!
