From Our Pastor...

Posted on March 17, 2023 in: Pastor


Imagine receiving an invitation from Our Savior Jesus Christ! A Parish Mission is a personal invitation from God. It is a major event meant to help everyone who participates to grow in the understanding of their Catholic Faith, to deepen their relationship with God, and to enable everyone to fulfill the commission Jesus gives to all the Baptized — to be God’s instrument to share the Gift of Faith.


Father Richard Gielow, Congregation of the Mission will begin our Lenten Mission by preaching next weekend’s Masses (March 25/26).

SUNDAY NIGHT — (3/26) — 7 to 8 p.m.Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Preaching, and Benediction.

MONDAY NIGHT — (3/27) —7 p.m Holy Mass followed by Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick is not Extreme Unction. The Sacrament of the Sick confers Sanctifying Grace. The conferral of this Anointing is meant to comfort and strengthen the sick person, quiets anxiety, dissipates fear, and gives strength to face doubt and despondency, when faced with surgery, recovery from it, growing elderly, addictions of various sorts, unrelenting pain, and grave illness.

TUESDAY NIGHT— (3/28) — 7 p.m.Holy Mass followed by the opportunity for the Sacrament of Christ’s Loving Forgiveness with several priests available. Saint John Paul II reminds us that Jesus is really present. We actually speak with Jesus heart to heart. He suffered, died, and rose for us while we were yet in our sins. God wants to give you inner peace and strength to be more like Jesus!
