"“Being Extraordinary during Ordinary Time between Christmas & Lent."
The time between Christmas and Lent can be a time of "spiritual lull." We spend time preparing ourselves during advent for the great celebration of Advent and then during Lent we prepare ourselves for the wondrous celebration of Easter. What do we do though in between? How are we working on our relationship with God during Ordinary time?
Join us for this men's retreat day Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 12 pm until 4:30pm. We will begin the day with lunch and end with 4:30pm Mass.
You may register online (below), through our parish app, or by calling the rectory. Please RSVP by Monday January 30 so that necessary arrangements can be made. The retreat will take place in the Main Church and Community Room.
Questions please contact Fr. Mike in the rectory, 627-2910.

St. John Paul II Statues
Our parish has a limited numbers of St. John Paul II Statues that decorated the tables at the reception following the Canonization Mass. The statues are available for purchase for $30.00 and are available at the parish office. They are available at a first-come first-served basis. They are a great way to remember the special events of our parish as we celebrated John Paul II’s canonization.
We are excited to announce the release of a new Mobile App for our parish. This app is available for download in the Android and Apple Stores. The App is a new and effective way for the parish to communicate with you and for you to stay connected with the parish.
The App is PACKED with prayer resources including Liturgy of the Hours, Daily Mass Readings, the Order of the Mass, Sunday Reading Reflections, the Bible, the Catechism, a digital rosary and on and on. It is also packed with educational resources, parish events, event sign up forms, Mass schedules, and “Push Notifications” to receive news and announcements from the parish, Faith Formation and Southtowns Catholic.
You can download the app in the following ways:
