  • Grieving Parents

    Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably one of the most searing is the death of a child. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join each of us in this ministry as we continue on our difficult journeys from grief to the healing peace that we, like Jesus’ disciples, can find in the Eucharistic community.

    To meet the spiritual needs of parents whose children of any age have died by any cause—no matter how long ago—the Family Life Office offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, the Emmaus Ministry offers a safe place where you can find peace, comfort, and hope, at least for a time. The entire retreat focuses on the parents’ personal spiritual journey, where one can engage as much or as little as one wants.

  • Thank you Catechists

    Catechetical Sunday 2018 Banner

    On Sunday, September 16th, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday to acknowledge and thank all Cathechists who dedicate themselves to hand on the faith and enlist witnesses for Christ. On this occasion, I would like to thank all of our catechists on behalf of our children, parents, and parish for their commitment to our children. In their ministry they assist our parents in keeping the promise they made at the baptism of their children to raise faith filled and informed catholic families. Also we thank all of the helpers who assist our catechists in their mission. Please join us at the 1pm Mass to renew your commitment and to be recognized by the community for your amazing service. May God bless and reward you for your invaluable service.
