Attention: All Parishioners

Remember that old Sister Sledge song…”We are Family”? I know, I am really showing my age. How many families are we all a part of? I want you all to know that even if you do not have youth in the Family Faith Formation program, you are a member of this Parish Family. All adults as parish family members are invited to the breaking open of the Word or Stump the Pastor on Wednesday evenings after 5:30 Mass. Each week we will be looking at the upcoming Sunday readings and looking at ways to put them to practical use. Though the discussion will be in English, we will be offering the readings and meditations in Spanish as well. We will also have the opportunity to “Stump the Pastor” every month or so. You will be able to ask Father Penn any question you want…with no judgement! We will have a box available for you to put your questions in if you prefer to be anonymous. Matter of fact, I think that we should put a box out in the Welcome Center that is labeled “Stump the Pastor” for people to add their questions at any time.

 The Registration/BBQ for Family Faith Formation is this Wednesday! We will begin our classes the following Wednesday. Please keep our youth, their parents, and our catechists in you prayers!
