Holy Hour is held the 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:00am (following 8:30am morning mass). Bishop Ricken has initiated Holy Hour to be a time for us to come together and become more prayerful persons. We are asked to pray for self, family, parish, diocese, as well as the Catholic Church and its members across the globe.
Check the bulletin for the mass schedule for holy days of obligation and other special days.

Mass intentions are masses offered for many reasons, among them being for the repose of the soul of any family members, friends, or acquaintances who have died. You can also have mass said for a special intention, such as for someone living who is sick, in Thanksgiving for something you have received, in celebration of a special occasion, etc. Please stop into the parish office to request a mass intention and choose an available date. Mass intentions are $10.00 each.

The children's stewardship program focuses on the three diocesan stewardship tenets of prayer, service, and sharing. This program is for children through 5th grade (green envelope). For children 6th grade and up, they may use the teen stewardship envelopes available in the narthex. Please remember to take a few extra envelopes home so your children may write down their prayer, service, and sharing during the week prior to the weekend mass.
