From the Pastor       13 OCT 2019
–  Please join us next Sunday after the 11:00 am Mass for a simple parish BBQ in our parking lot. We look forward to meeting many of the families of the parish.
–  We pray for the sanctity of Life during this month of the Holy Rosary. May we respect all life from the moment of conception until natural death. We pray for peace in our heart, family, parish, country and world.
–  Let us know if there is any friend or family member who needs a visit from a priest at this time. Be assured of our daily prayers.
In Christ,

PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL:  Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do though, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen…St. Michael Pray for Us.
