We are into 2021!  May all of you have a blessed 2021.  Once again, I invite you to review our parish website for all sorts of information and formational opportunities.  Technology can be such a blessing!

We continue to keep our regular Mass schedule during this pandemic.  The attendance has been particularly good, even at times requiring the usage of the overflow space in the Community Center.  It is a blessing to be able to live-stream our liturgies into the space.  I am also grateful for our parishioners, who continue to wear the masks and keep the social distancing.  This helps to keep everyone safe.

I ask that you continue to keep posted on activities within our parish community by viewing this website and/or our Facebook page as our bulletin may not always be up-to-date because the restrictions can change at a moment's notice.  The parish staff must be quick on its feet as well.  We are currently in the process of planning Lenten activities -- Adoration & Benediction as well as Stations of the Cross.  We must wait to see about the Communal Lenten Penance service.  Most likely, I am guessing the emphasis will be upon one-to-one confessions.  In an effort to reach out beyond our parish doors and build stronger community connections, we are planning different parish activities - both outdoor and virtual (ZOOM).  They should be fun and help us better to connect with each other as we grow in faith.  Most likely, these will begin in the Spring when the weather may be cooperative.

Again, I am grateful for our parish community.  I appreciate your cooperation during these challenging times and your willingness to continue to grow in faith as disciples of Jesus.  We are blessed.

Let's stay alive in Christ,    Father Steve Zabrocki, Pastor

The liturgy for this weekend can be found here on our YouTube page. 

 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire
to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You
sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.
