“With the summer literally heating up, I pray that everyone is keeping cool. This might be a good time to think about your neighbors who are homebound, or just elderly or alone. Take a moment to stop by and see how they are doing, or give a call to see that they are ok. We remember Jesus’ words that whatever we do to the least of his children, we do to Him. Have a safe and joyful summer.”…Fr. Dave

Question of the Week










Religious Liberty - There are many cases before the courts that take religious liberty into account.  We have great people who lobby and advocate for religious freedom.  We can assist in that important work by offering prayers and Masses.  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops encourages you to pray for religious freedom especially during the Fortnight for Freedom, June 21-July 4.
