ANNOUNCEMENTS

Over the next two weeks we will hear an extended passage from Matthew’s Gospel in which Jesus reinterprets the law for his disciples. He challenges his disciples to take it one step further, to do more than just follow the letter of the law. On this Presidents’ Day weekend, when we honor those people whom we have trusted to guide our country, let us consider how we can trust Jesus to guide us in our daily life.


PRESIDENT’S DAY Monday, February 17th President’s Day, is a Civil Holiday. There will be only one Mass celebrated at 9:00 a.m. The Rectory will be closed and reopen on Tuesday, February 18th .

2019 ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL (ACA)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to last years (2019) Annual Catholic Appeal. If it were not for your generosity our Church would not have been able to reach its goal of $42,747.

We have been informed by Bishop DiMarzio that the ACA Appeal goal for our Church this year will be $49,159. Your contributions no matter the amount help so many in our Diocese. Let us pray that this year’s ACA Appeal will be more successful that the last.

God Bless,

Fr. Jovi

CAMPAÑA CATÓLICA ANUAL 2019

Padre Jovi
