New Ministry – “Baby Blanket Bunch”

The Baptism Program and the Prayer Shawl Ministry are happy to introduce the Baby Blanket Bunch! We are hoping to give a blessed, white baby blanket to each child baptized in the parish. This gift to the family will be a sign of this special day on which we welcomed our newest members into our parish family.

We need people to knit or crochet the white baby blankets. The blankets can be brought to the Prayer Shawl Ministry meeting at 9:30am on the first Wednesday of each month in the Parish Center or dropped off at the Rectory. We also need donations of white wool for the blankets which can be dropped off at the rectory or the meeting as well. Please share your special creative talent and love with the youngest of our parish.



Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

We celebrate Nocturnal Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Saturday of the month, following the 5:00pm Mass. The Blessed Sacrament is also exposed every Tuesday from 12:30pm to 8:00pm in the Church.

All are welcome to come and adore the Lord in the Holy Eucharist.
