    Father of goodness and love; hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need.  Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence.  Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts.  We ask this through the lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen

    • A sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make last weekend’s Parish Picnic a true community event! A host of individuals and groups worked tirelessly behind the scenes for this event including Co-Chairs Pat Cappucci and Mike Pistorio, and the Parish staff especially Fernando Gomez. The picnic was a joy to experience. I am truly grateful to all from concelebrants Fr. Lukasz, Fr. Henry and Msgr. Carroll, to the music provided by Michael Pierce, our choirs and outside musicians, all the Knights for preparing and serving delicious food, Art Anastasia for the ice cream and the confirmation students who helped with the bouncy houses. Bravo! Fr. Steve

  • phony emails and phone calls

    UPDATE 4/17/19:


    Someone with an affiliation with the parish (parishioner, staff, etc.) had their address book hacked.  The hackers are using the email addresses and, in some instances phone numbers, to impersonate Fr. Steve or  Msgr. Carroll and social engineer others in that address book.  Don’t respond to any of these solicitations.  To protect yourself, please change your email password as you could have been the  party compromised.    Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!
