“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly father.”
ACTS is a three-day retreat designed to: Refresh your spirit, Deepen your relationship with God, and Connect you with your parish community.
The ACTS retreat begins on a Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community. Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are the guides for the retreats.

Our fourth Spiritual Adoption program began the weekend of January 31st and February 1st. This program asks us to say a short prayer every day for nine months to help pregnant women who findthemselves in difficult circumstances to seek help rather than resort to the alternative of abortion, which is completely against God’s plan and the teachings of the Catholic Church. At the end of the nine months, there will be a “birth-day” party where we collect items for new born to distribute to several women’s centers.
Please e-mail us or call the parish office for more details.

Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy
“Mercy is love that seeks to lessen
the misery of others”
I feel certain that my mission will not come to an end upon my death, but will begin. O doubting souls, I will draw aside for you the veils of heaven to convince you of God's goodness so that you will no longer continue to wound with your distrust the sweetest Heart of Jesus. God is Love and Mercy. (Diary of St. Faustina, 281)
For study: 1st & 3rd Sunday, 2:30 p.m., Mary’s House (Senior Center, 720 Beryl).
All that is needed is a Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church and The Diary of St. Faustina, “Divine Mercy in My Soul”.
Spiritual Works: 2nd & 4th Saturday, 11:00 a.m. in the Adoration Chapel.
