Friends in Christ, Welcome to Our Parish



Beloved Jesus, grant that I may rest in Your above all things,

Above all creatures, above all Your angels, above all praise,

Above all rejoicing and exultation, above all glory and honor,

Above all heavenly hosts; for Your alone are Most High,

You alone are the Almighty and Good above all things.

May You come to me and deliver me, and release me from 

My chains, and grant me freedom, because without You my

Joy is not complete, without You my table is empty.

God saves me, Jesus enlightens me, the Holy Spirit is my 

Life, thus I fear nothing.


Welcome Brothers & Sisters

In 2016, at the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis established the Day of the Poor, which the entire Catholic Church observes annually in November.  This years message "Your always have the poor with  you". Pope Francis calls Christians and governments around the world to act with a sense of urgency as the number of the poor has increased immeasurably.  His Beatitude Sviatoslav, last  year proclaimed the ongoing action Feed The Poor.  His Beatitude encourages each parish to collect groceries, essentials, and during the pandemic to help those in need of treatment. 

Therefore this year we will again have a FOOD DRIVE collecting non-perishable foods, dry canned and grocery items to be distributed to the needy people in our community for Christmas.  Monetary donations will also be acepted.  Thank you in advance for your generosity to this social project to help those in need during this season of giving.  Please place your items in the boxes  in the back of the Church or in the Church Hall.
