                           “This is the great Feast of Pentecost. Today we celebrate the first great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church. But, like all the mysteries of our faith, this is not just a past event being remembered, but a present reality being celebrated. The Holy Spirit will come upon us more fully, the more fully we open our lives to His presence and gifts and the more fully we ask for Him to come. The prayer: Come Holy Spirit is appropriate every day of our lives and, indeed, should be a part of our daily prayers.”…Fr. Dave

Congratulations to Fr. Paul Clark, newly ordained priest in the Diocese of Jefferson City on Saturday, June 3, 2017! 


Open House – Mr. & Mrs. Bradley Birk will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with an open house on June 10 at the Community Center at Chamois, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. 

Flood Relief Collection - The powerful storm system that brought torrential rainfall & historic flooding to MO recently impacted numerous households throughout our diocese.  In response, a special collection will be taken up next weekend (June 10-11) to provide emergency & longer-term assistance to those affected throughout our diocese.  Special envelopes are available in back of church or just mark “Flood Relief” on an envelope and drop in the collection basket.  All funds collected will be sent to Catholic Charities of Central & Northern MO to help with relief efforts in our diocese.
