Happy Mothers Day

St. Francis wrote a beautiful prayer poem to Our Blessed Mother:
       Hail Holy Lady, Most Holy Queen, Mary Mother of God and ever a Virgin.
       Chosen by the Father in heaven, consecrated by His Beloved Son and the Holy Spirit.
       On You descended, and in You still remains all the fullness of grace and every good.
       Hail God’s Dwelling, Hail God’s Handmaid, Hail God’s Robe, Hail God’s Mother.

We greet and we thank our Mothers, those who are with us and those who have gone before us. You were our Dwellings, as you carried us to birth. You were our handmaids, as you cared for our every need. You have been our Robes, as you wrap us in the mantle of your love. You are our Mothers, filled with grace and goodness. We love you, we thank you, we ask God to hold you in His heart as we hold you in ours.

With love and a prayer,
Fr. Dennis

Ministry for Maturing Adults - News
Upcoming Events
In light of the current pandemic, our Office has decided to postpone the in-person Ministry with Maturing Adults Workshop until Saturday, June 5, 2021.  To celebrate this year's Seniors’ Month, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a virtual event for the Ministry with Maturing Adults on Saturday June 6, 2020.  This is a free event. 
Ministry with Maturing Adults WEBINAR
Included a presentation by Sr. Janet Schaeffler, OP on 
The Gifts and Challenges of these Unprecedented Times.

Wondering questions and faith-filled courage, anxious worries, and expectant hope, fill our hearts. As mature adults, women and men of wisdom and life experiences, how do we live in these uncertain times so that we’re not just surviving but, immersed in God’s strength, we’re thriving and deepening? This webinar will give us time to virtually gather with others for reflection, thoughts, and suggestions for living the challenges and the gifts of this place where we’d rather not be.
All men and women in the second half of life (50+), including volunteers, parish leaders, parish staff, and priests are welcome to join this webinar.  Click on the link to register:
