Holy Week & Easter Thank You!: I thank all of you for helping with the Holy Week and Easter liturgies in both parishes, and everyone who came to participate to make it a truly blessed week with wonderful celebrations! I thank you for your cards, gifts, and Easter well wishes!

Divine Mercy Sunday Thanks: I thank those of you who were able to come to help celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, holy hours, and confessions. We had the best turnout I have ever had for Divine Mercy weekend confessions, about 1.5 hours constant stream in total. The last time penitents went to confession was from one-half day to 50 years! It was so wonderful to see God’s Mercy at work when you took advantage of this one weekend to go to confession and receive Holy Communion a removal of all sin and all punishment due to sin, “a second baptism” only available this one weekend per year. I look forward to celebrating it next year with you! Pray for Ordinations!: Our diocese ordination to the priesthood is May 27 at 11:00 am. Join us via livestream to watch three men be ordained by Bishop Donald DeGrood. You can find the link to the livestream at

Blessing & Conferral of the Brown Scapular: Traditionally, priests have enrolled First Communicants in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I do this after the Final Blessing of the First Communion Mass. You can search information online about this Catholic sacramental. Nobody has to wear one, but if they so choose later in life and in order to benefit from the private revelation promises, they have to have been enrolled.
