    • Sacrament of Baptism
      "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." ~Acts 2:38

      We welcome those who entered our Catholic faith through the waters of Baptism in April:
    • Sacrament of Eucharist
      "Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst." ~John 6:35

    • Sacrament of Confirmation
      " {Paul} said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?"  And they said to him, "We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit."  And he said to them, "Into what then were you baptized?"  So they said, "Into John's baptism."  Then Paul said, "John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe in Him who would come after him, that is, in Christ Jesus."  When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.  And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophsied." ~Acts 19:2-6

    • Sacrament of Holy Matrimony
      "Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man."  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." ~Genesis 2:22-24

      We welcome our couples married in April:

    • Pray for the Sick
      Is anyone among you sick?  Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.  If they have sinned, they will be forgiven." ~James 5:14-15
