Our Church

Greetings and Welcome!  

Don’t miss out on Advent! We have begun a New Year in the life of our Catholic Community. While Advent is a time of waiting, of joyful expectation, it is also a time of preparing, of getting ready. Without doubt we prepare for the material aspects of Christmas. Most of us will be involved in shopping, sending cards, attending parties, decorating a Christmas Tree. However, what about our most important preparation, our spiritual preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ? This is certainly the most significant aspect of this season. Have you planned times of prayer? Have you made a commitment to get yourself and your family to the Sacrament of Reconciliation? Are you thinking about the best time to come to Christmas Mass so that you are as free as possible from other distractions? The Lord has great graces and blessing in store for you during this Advent/Christmas season. He looks for hearts and lives that are open and receptive. As we approach the Christmas Season there will be more times and opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I would also encourage parents to select a few of the religious Christmas carols and share the words and their meaning with your children. They were composed by people of faith to bring the coming of Christ alive.  Advent, as always, will pass very quickly. Please, don’t miss out on it.  God be with you and bless you,  Father John G Kiley, Administrator

      The Ministry of Exorcisms - Father Gary Thomas   

In the fall of 2005 I had the opportunity to spend a three month sabatical in the city of Rome with priests from our country and other English speaking countries.  One of those priests was Fr. Gary Thomas.  At the time he was in the beginning stages of becoming an exorcist.  It was a pleasure to know him.  He eventually wrote a book about his experiences in Rome and the book became a movie, the Rite.  His talk will help you to become aware of the spiritual battle we are all involved in, whether we realize it or not.  It will help you to continue or to begin to take the steps necessary to protect yourself from the work of the Evil One and his minions.  Fr.

Advent with Bob Rice  

Watch it on the Formed Website during Advent - Instructions Below

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” or, at least that’s the assumption based on that familiar holiday song. But what does that look like at your house? Most of us anticipate the great sales at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, string lights on the outside of our house, and decorating the inside of our homes. But how exactly are we preparing our hearts for the greatest gift we’ve ever been given? Through an exploration of the mystery of the Incarnation, the Virgin Birth, and the events surrounding the arrival of Jesus, this Advent study offers an opportunity to experience the joy of the true meaning of Christmas.



Don't miss this captivating presentation by Dr. Brant Pitre entitled: "Confirmation - the Sacrament of Evangelization and Martyrdom?"  It will give you a new and renewed appreciation of the beauty and meaning of this sacrament that some of us may take for granted and some others never receive.  Be sure to listen on Formed.  Getting on the website is explaned below.  Also listen to the challenging presentation by Fr. Larry Richards entitled - "Confession".
