Pastor:  Reverend Patrick Connor  
Deacon: Deacon Douglas Farwell


 We are a Catholic Community of faith united in our Love for Jesus Christ. We strive to maintain and carry the message of hope and salvation to others through our works of evangelisation and examples of sacramental life.




Fr. Erb, as many of you have noticed when he says Mass of late, is growing considerably weaker.  Recently his doctor said he must cut back on his work schedule, meaning the number of Masses he says.  So we must reduce our Mass schedule from six Masses a weekend to four, since Fr. Pat will be the primary celebrant, saying two on Saturday and two on Sunday.  Fr. Erb will have the option of saying a Mass if he feels up to it.  Fr. Pat has reassured Fr. Erb not to feel like he is failing us in anyway by cutting back.  He has gone over and above our expectations!  Nor can Fr. Pat possibly say six Masses.  The Bishop would not allow that, nor is there another priest available to take Fr. Erb’s place.

A Message from Fr Pat

Jesus said, “Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do My own will but the will of the one who sent Me.  And this is the will of the One who sent Me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day” (Jn 6: 37-40).  

I WILL NOT REJECT ANYONE WHO COMES TO ME.  That is the story of the message of Christ’s birth, the Incarnation, and it is the message of his Crucifixion and Resurrection, the Redemption, GOD WELCOMING US.  

DO YOU FEEL GOD’S WELCOME OF YOU?  And do you find our parish community a place of welcome, where you experience the presence and the love of God?  If not, what can we, what can I as you pastor do, to change that?  

But it is really a gift you end up giving each other.  For when you show your faith in this way, it creates a stronger faith in those around you.  Then, our parish communities can begin to form specialized ministries to meet the needs of our people, so that all feel their needs are being met.  I wish you and your loved ones joy and peace.
