A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

"Today we give thanks for our many blessings as we pray for those in need. We give thanks for our family and friends as we pray for those who are lonely. We give thanks for our freedoms as we pray for those who are oppressed. We give thanks for our good health as we pray for those who are ill. We give thanks for our comfort and prosperity as we share our blessings with others. On this day of Thanksgiving, May the love of God enfold us, the peace of God dwell within us, and the joy of God uplift us. Amen."

Serving God and His People at Mass - Youth Altar Servers

Serving God isn't just for adults, we are all called to serve God and his people.  One of the most important places to do that is during the Saturday evening/Sunday liturgy.  We are looking for boys and girls in Grade 4 and up to be Altar Servers.  
We will have a training session on Saturday, November 5 at 11am in the Church.  During this training session, we will teach them how to be an altar server, why it is an important role at Mass, and talk about some of the things that happen during the liturgy.  Once they are trained, they will be able to serve at any of the Masses that you attend. If you are interested, please email Kristen Gawlik - with the name of your son or daughter, their grade, a contact number, and what Mass you normally attend.

A Day in the Life of St Francis

Tuesday, October 4 is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. In honor of this great saint, we will have a blessing of animals at 5:00pm next to the St. Francis mural (across the street from the Church). Bring your dog, cat, bird, frogs, fish or whatever pets you may have to receive a special blessing on the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals.  The Tuesday Religious Education students will be brought over to the mural at 4:45pm and will be dismissed from the parking lot.
