Text Box:“It was great having all the kids here for Camp Hope this week. Thanks to Doris Rost and all the volunteers who made it so successful.
     “I look forward to our Fish and Shrimp Buffet next weekend. Remember the Mass time Changes!!! Thanks to all who organized and who will be helping and working to make this a great success.
With elections coming up on August 6 and in November, there are important questions facing the country in which Catholics too are a part. I hope that everyone is staying informed on the issues, and also studying and is familiar with Catholic teaching. We are called to have our consciences formed by our Catholic faith, and vote accordingly. A good website is: www.FaithfulCitizenship.org.”...Fr. Dave

Stewardship Quote - The Letter to the Ephesians reminds us that Christ is creating a new world order: one that brings about relationships based on love, peace, reconciliation, hope and unity.  As a Eucharistic community, we are stewards of Christ's new creation. How are we promoting peace and reconciliation?  How are we showing love for our neighbors?  What are we doing to encourage unity and understanding among those with whom we gather around the Lord's Table each week?
