A NEW ECUMENICAL MINISTRY (open to all) to those grieving the loss of a spouse, family member, or close friend gathers on Monday evenings, 6:30-8:30 PM in the O'Brien Family Room (enter through the door on 11th Street, on the side of the church). Click on the Grief Share icon above for details.

Throughout the month of November we remember our faithful departed at every Mass. We invite you to write their names in our Book of Remembrance located by the baptismal font, and bring a framed photo of your loved one to place on a window sill to remind us they are not gone from our midst.
