Coming from different backgrounds and from across the area, we gather to worship and glorify God with the reverent celebration of the Mass, the sacraments, and the venerable traditions of our Catholic faith. Faithful to the Magisterium and our love of God and neighbor, we strive to live and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We gratefully return to God all that He has given us by using our gifts and talents to build up His Church, support our parish family, and welcome all who yearn for Christ.

Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA collection
Service members train together to prepare to support the mission. They identify with their unit and find purpose in protecting and defending our nation. The return home, however, frequently finds one grappling with multiple losses: loss of mission, peers, and the operational tempo of deployment, to name a few. So much is done to prepare men and women to serve their mission in the military, the same should be done as they reintegrate after deployments. The ecclesial family should embrace and remind service members that they are not alone in their struggle to re-acclimate to life at home. Please do nate generously to continue the mission to promote peace and bring God's healing through the sacraments to service members and their families.
The collection will take place the weekend of September 28-29.
