The public phase of the Rebuild My Church Capital Campaign officially kicked off the weekend of Aug. 28-29 with the announcement that efforts from the silent phase of the campaign have generated over $3.2 million in pledges and outright gifts. Funds raised will be used to renovate and repair our parish's many campus buildings.
Why Should You Attend an ACTS Retreat?
Those who attend an ACTS retreat share in an experience that has impacted more than one million lives worldwide since the first retreat in 1987. Numerous retreatants have provided testimonies describing how they were evangelized through a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. They have become better fathers, mothers, husbands, wives and children.
Letter from Our Pastor
Our parish is such a blessing for all of us! So many people are committed to the mission of the Gospel in so many ways: adult education, bible studies, retreats, funeral dinners, liturgical ministries, PSR, RCIA, SFA School, Bishop Carroll, CYM, lawn mowers, ladies guild, and so many more! These are all a part of the mission of our parish, all of which is a result of our shared stewardship.

We Are Not Meant to 'Go it Alone'
"It is not good for man to be alone" (Gen 2:18). These familiar words remind us that the human person was not created to be alone, nor to work alone.
