What’s New


Today, the first Sunday after Easter, is known as Divine Mercy Sunday. We know that Jesus is raised, but in our gospel we see there are still some marks that need to be addressed. Jesus’ hands and side are still wounded, and so is Thomas’ heart. He’s not sure if he is ready to trust again.

Jesus gives Thomas a chance to hope again, and find some healing for his heart. Yet his purpose for the entire group seems to be to wish them peace and give them the authority to forgive sins. To this day, this mission of mercy and the mission of healing hearts are at the center of what the church does. This healing often comes through an encounter with Jesus, who loves us and shows us the same tender care that he showed Thomas, even when we doubt.

Peace, Fr. Dan

Thank you to everyone that donated flowers to our Easter Memory Gardens in remembrance of a loved one. The gardens are beautiful.

Presale tickets for our annual Chicken BBQ on May 2nd are now available. All parishioners will receive two BBQ tickets to purchase or sell. Tickets are $10.00 for a dinner and $6.00 for chicken only. To purchase the presale tickets, please put the stub and payment in an envelope and drop it in the collection basket or mail it to the parish office before April 25th. More tickets are available upon request.

Tickets are only considered presale if they are paid for prior to the BBQ. The BBQ begins at Noon and all dinners must be picked up before 1:30pm. We are offering presale tickets as this will allow us to better prepare for an accurate number of dinners. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door, but we always sell out, so getting your ticket early is the only way to guarantee that you’ll get a dinner.

As we approach the mid-point of Appeal 2021, we would like to remind you that your support of the Appeal enables us to continue our efforts to improve the lives of those we serve. All told, your gifts helped us bring hope to 149,000 lives last year through Catholic Charities and helped the Diocese to support spiritual care and compassion through 14 Fund for the Faith programs. In the spirit of thankfulness, we share our 2021 Appeal prayer to Patron St. Ignatius Loyola: “St. Ignatius, help us to be grateful and generous. To give and not count the cost. To labor and not seek reward. To share God’s love with our neighbors in need. To meet them where they are in life and let them know they are not alone. Help us to be poor in spirit – to realize our dependence upon God. And to do all things for the greater glory of God. We ask this in the name of Jesus through your intercession. St. Ignatius, pray for us!” (Imprimatur: Most Rev. Michael Fisher) Thank you for helping us be HOPE for all seasons.
