  • Vacation Bible School
    Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2014 VBS the success that it was. Whether it was through volunteering, participating, donating or praying, I am grateful. This summer the children learned that Jesus' Love is One-of-a-Kind. It was a privilege to direct this wonderful program with the help of amazing people!

  • Thank you our Little Francis and Clare!!!
    How do you thank so many precious little Angels? Saturday, August 9, 2014 we celebrated the Feast of Saint Clare and our Little Clare and Francis dressed in their robes, collar and habits, made the celebration very special. We are very grateful to you, the parents, for sharing your precious babies with us. Most importantly, we are so thankful to our lovely, courageous and beautiful precious little ones for saying yes. In simplicity and purity of hearts, you emulated sanctity and in the process you made God smile and you invited this community to see God in the ordinary. May God continue his blessings upon you. You are precious to God and you are precious to us. We love you!!!!
