“This week I will be going on my annual retreat. This is something the Church expects of her priest each year. It gives us a time to reflect on our ministry and how we can continue to serve the Lord. I’ll be in St. Louis with a group of other priests from the Jefferson City diocese. Please continue to pray for all your priests. Unfortunately that means that there will not be daily Mass this week.”…Fr. Dave

Catholic Home Missions Appeal - Many dioceses right here in the U.S. do not have enough priests and trained lay ministers to serve their parishes. These dioceses are known as home missions. The Catholic Home Missions Appeal, which takes place this weekend, supports these dioceses by funding essential ministries, including seminary education and lay ministry training. Please be generous in this appeal and share your resources to strengthen the Church at home. If you forgot your donation this weekend, please drop in the collection basket next weekend.
