To our newly confirmed who received the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Joseph Cathedral on Sunday, April 12th by Bishop Peter Libasci.
We are grateful to all who guided their formation and will continue to accompany them on their faith journey.
Let the Alleluias ring in our churches as we celebrate this Easter Season! May we continue to bear witness to the Good News that is the Easter message of salvation for all. The mysteries revealed to us during the Triduum are to be lived fully each and every day of the year.
"We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song!"
Pope John Paul II

One way our parish family extends the hands of Christ to the surrounding community is through the Giving Hands Ministry, made up of a group of people who get together in Tetu Hall the first Monday of every month to knit and crochet a variety of items for those in need. Members are now working on baby blankets and sweaters for Our Place..
The next get-together is Monday, May 4th in Tetu Hall, beginning at 7pm. We would love to have you join us! Any level of knitting or crocheting talent is welcome. If you don't know how, we'll teach you plus supply you with all the yarn & materials you'll need. In addition, you can make your own items to donate using your patterns or ours. If you can't join us, but have extra yarn or needles, you don't need, we would welcome that donation.
Boy Scout Troop 118 is inviting all interested boys, ages 11-17 years of age, to stop by any of their meetings held every Monday evening from 6-8PM. You may also contact Scoutmaster Mike Szelog at 540-0550
