Pray with Fr. Matthew at an "Advent Evening of Recollection" on Thursday, December 10, 7:00PM 


SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 5      9:00AM - 3:00PM
The challlenges to true peace in our world and in our hearts are many. We gather as individuals and as a community of faith to pray for peace and for the prayer intentions of our sisters and brothers. Come join us for an hour of quiet prayer. Use one of the forms at the Welcome Desk to let us know of any special prayer request you wish to add to our list.


In this 1945 sequel to the instant classic "Going My Way" (1944), Bing crosby reprised his role as "Father O'Malley" who takes on a new and struggling inner-city parish with a struggling school and a formidable principal and mother superior in Sister Mary (Ingrid Bergman), whose sisters are dedicated to keeping the school alive. Nostaligia, hope, and the human spirit triumph in this classic.


Embracing the Synod on the Family, we gather to share the stories of our families as we strive to be faithful members of the Catholic Church.
