Easter Sunday, April 17, 2022

A Blessed Easter Sunday! From Canon Norman: "I would like to express my thanks to all who have taken part in the preparations and execution of the sacred liturgies of Holy Week: those who built the Altar of Repose, prepared the church and sanctuary, veiled the statues, served at the Altar, and chanted the prayers, to name just a few examples. Others offered services no less valuable, if not as visible. The beauty and richness of the traditional liturgy depend on the active participation of the faithful, by their interior union with Our Lord’s Sacrifice in the Holy Mass, and in the many details that comprise the solemn ceremonies designed to honor and glorify God. Even so, my heartfelt thanks can hardly compare to the abundant graces with which God rewards those who honor Him. May these graces enrich and deepen your faith throughout Eastertide!"

3rd Sunday of Lent, March 20,2022

Our 7am altar server crew took the intitiative to polish and clean the pectoral crosses. Are there young men and boys among you who may be considering a priestly vocation, or who would simply like to be closer to the Sacred Liturgy? Altar serving is a wonderful way to “take a first step” in the process of discernment. Our event for the Altar Servers is coming up this Saturday, March 26, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. A talk will be given, followed by pizza and time for games and socializing. Please rsvp to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
