May 14, 2013 | by Fr. Bruce BradleyWe are planning to remodel the Church bathrooms and the Parish Hall kitchen. We are excited to finally embark upon these much needed enhancements. We will be having a special 2nd collection this weekend at Mass to help fund these projects. Whatever you can contribute would be greatly appreciated! We also think you might like to check out our on-line giving tool WeShare. It is a convenient, safe and secure method of managing your financial commitment to God and the parish. Thanks for your continued generosity!
February 22, 2013 | by Fr. Bruce BradleyIt has been about six hundred years since the last Pope left while in office, helping heal the "Great Schism". That resignation brought the Church back into a proper focus on unity. This pontiff has abdicated purely from a desire to love and serve the Body of Christ and the World. It is a matter of personal conscience and great act of humility. His resignation brings us into a spiritual focus. It indicates that the Papacy is a ministry of love and truth, even more than one of power and authority.
February 14, 2013 | by Fr. Bruce BradleyDear Parish Family, In reading the Gospels we see that most of the miracles of Christ were those of healing and feeding. He is the ultimate source and example of true generosity. He gave His life for us. His generosity brought us healing, forgiveness and the promise of Eternal Life. God is the source of life and all the gifts that exist. In recognizing our gifts, or blessings, we are called to use them to touch the lives of others. Love and forgiveness lead to generosity. Generosity leads to healing. Christians are called to follow the Lord in generosity . We should be thankful for our gifts and use them well for the common good.
