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.


You are invited to Adoration on Fridays
The value of an hour spent before the Blessed Sacrament is beyond all that we can imagine. You will
experience a peace of heart that the world cannot give, a peace that only Jesus can give you. Fridays
between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Knights of Columbus Family of the month

Ken & Patricia Bakker Family

The Knights of Columbus wish to honour a worthy parish family with this months Family of the Month. This family has been in the parish for a few decades. They have been faithful parishioners through those years having raised a wonderful family, always faithful even as the family experienced hardship through an illness in the family.
Father has a very busy and giving life, working as an emergency nurse. He is known for his kindness and dedication to excellence in his chosen profession. Some of these traits obviously have rubbed off on his children as they have grown up. Mother is dedicated to her family. Also dedicated to the parish. She has served and continues to serve in many ways, She is often called upon to be a Communion minister. She has served on parish Council, and on the parish unity committee. Her’s are quiet unassuming ways but are of great value. The children now mostly adults have obviously grown up in a loving Christian home/ They are part of many parish efforts. Not the least of which is the live streaming of parish masses that benefit those who are home bound or otherwise unavailable to attend Sunday Services.
We welcome and invite to come forward the Ken & Patricia Bakker Family.
Please join in congratulating them..
