Stewardship is an important concept for our spiritual growth as Catholics. It is a way of thanking God for all His blessings by returning to Him a portion of the time, talent and treasure we have received.
Every Tuesday, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the church from 3 to 4 p.m. It is an hour of prayer for the priests, DIVINE MERCY and religious men and women of the church. Prayers are also said for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life.We invite you to come and spend time with the Lord for these intentions and for your personal requests.

In the celebration of World Mission Sunday next Sunday, October 19th, we see clearly the missionary meaning of the words of the Third Eucharistic Prayer: “Father...from age to age you gather a people to yourself, so that from east to west a perfect offering may be made to the glory of your name.”
Throughout the year, and especially on World Mission Sunday when the whole world prays for the Church’s missionary work at the Eucharist of the Lord, we take part in the unending mission of Jesus - to call all peoples and nations to the banquet of His Body and Blood.
