Thank you for all your kindness to the Church. The Christmas collection exceeded our hopes. The sacrifice that you make for the Church is a blessing to us and deeply appreciated. God's blessings in return a hundred-fold for all your generosity.

Prayers for Bishop Lennon

Bishop Lennon has now officially retired due to health. Please continue to keep the Bishop in your prayers and in your thoughts. We will look to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the choice He directs Pope Francis for our new Bishop and Shepherd. We wish and pray Bishop Lennon well and have sent him a letter of our prayerful support during this difficult time. God's peace to him.
