Dear Parishioners: It has come to my attention that spam e-mails coming from myself, Bishop Fabbro or a number of priests have been circulating, asking for help by purchasing gift cards, etc. (eg. iTunes gift cards). Please know that these e-mails are spam and I ask that you block and delete these e-mail addresses on your computer. Neither myself, the Bishop or any priest of our Diocese would ever ask for this kind of “help”. Thank you, Fr. Don

There are many resources available to assist those in need and to support the work of our Catholic community to serve in charity and to act for justice, both at the diocesan level as well as at your local parish. Please contact your local parish or one of the diocesan outreach ministries for assistance. We look forward to working with you in our shared mission as we live our lives together as the Body of Christ.
Sacraments are celebrations of special moments of encounter between God and human beings. They are not, obviously, the only occasions when human beings consciously respond to God who is forever offering His love and friendship, but they are times when, the Catholic Church teaches, a person’s relationship with God is assuredly initiated or deepened or strengthened or healed.
Youth Ministry is the response of the Christian Community to the needs of young people fostering their development as Catholic Christians and drawing them into responsible participation in the life, mission and ministry of the Church
Prayer & worship
Our family is one that recognizes the importance of prayer in all that we do. Prayer is the common bond that we share as a family, regardless of our language, age or geographic location. From the child praying before bed to the prayer group at the parish, our family of faith continues to pray for those in our community and those around the world.
