Special welcome to our Parish family to Bella, Jordyn, Braylon and Emme. The celebration of your First Communion was a beautiful way to begin your faithful journey with us! We are anxious to share out worship with you!

Thank you to the newly formed Children’s Choir. You were fantastic and we are grateful you shared your talents with us. Thanks to Marilyn , Kylee and Jen for all your leadership. We look forward to watching you grow with us.


May is a special time in the church calendar when we honor Mary, the mother of Jesus. The month of May is a time to look forward to better weather and enjoy the flowers and plants which are starting to bloom. The practice of honoring Mary with flowers began in the 7th century by St. Flacre, Irish patron saint of gardening. We are celebrating today by crowning Mary as queen of mercy and love. What a beautiful way to honor our Patron Saint!

We are still in need of volunteers to help with our worship services. Please consider sharing your talent with us. Altar set-up and Lectors are in special need! Please contact Donna Robinson at 319-480-7141
