MONTH OF NOVEMBER

In the Catholic Church, November is dedicated to remembering the faithful departed in a special way.  You are encouraged to inscribe the names of your deceased loved ones in the Book of Remembrance which will be located on a table in the Gathering Area.  They will be remembered at all our November Masses. 

PARKING LOT DONATION UPDATE

Thanks to those who have contributed and continue to contribute to the parking lot project.  To date we have $45,816 in the Building Fund and we are working toward a goal of $70,000.  The Leland Smith Foundation will then match our $70,000 for a grand total of $140,000 which is what we need.

HALL RENTAL

If you plan to rent our parish hall for an event in 2020, please contact Fr. Steinle.  Proof of Liability Insurance is needed as this is a Diocesan requirement.
