Is your Rice Bowl filling up? (We hope so!) But, please do NOT bring it to the Parish Office until after the "Stay Home - Stay Healthy" restrictions have been lifted. The Office is CLOSED and we are not able to process that many coins at this time! When the "all clear" is sounded, instructions will be posted on this website.

FAITH FORMATION UPDATE -  March 25, 2020

Even though our Faith Formation programs will not be meeting for the rest of this school year, your child is expected to complete her/his studies. Our catechists have compiled packets containing student books and home-study lesson plans. When the "Stay Home-Stay Healthy" mandate has been lifted, the Parish Office will re-open and the packets will be available for pick up. Please watch this website for more information.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FIRST COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION:

It is our current expectation that the celebrations of First Communion and Confirmation will need to be rescheduled. The new dates will be determined after the governor’s Social Distancing mandate is lifted and the students are able to come back together to complete their formation process. Additionally, the new date of Confirmation needs to take into consideration the schedule of the Bishop.

THANK YOU!        Link to this week's FINANCIAL UPDATE

We are very grateful to those of you who so kindly have continued to support Holy Disciples by mailing your weekly contribution envelope or by donating through an EFT program. These are very challenging weeks for our parish since expenses have not decreased and the vast majority of our parish income is received through passing the basket at our weekend Masses.

A PSALM PRAYER FOR ANXIOUS TIMES

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress. Thus we do not fear, though earth be shaken and mountains quake to the depths of the sea, though its waters rage and foam and mountains totter at its surging.  Psalm 46:2-4


This Holy Season of Lent is our time of spiritual purification and renewal in the Grace of God. The Prophet Joel also calls us to "Come back to the Lord with all your heart" (Joel 2:13).

Lenten Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving help us draw closer to the Lord and set us more firmly on the way of Jesus.

May God bless us all with a good Lenten journey
during these difficult times.
