FYI Corner
We are in need of your help! The parish church is seeking for your generosity and kind hearted gift to raise funds to make our church building cool again. The airconditioning unit or system is too old to maintain. Bishop Parkes already approved our loan in the diocese for installation. We are projecting the amount of $250,000 and more to be spent. You may contact or visit our parish office to inquire. The envelopes for the project are available at the shelves in each door of our church marked with "New Air Conditioner". As of the moment, we have raised $33,480.28 through our continued campaign. Let us help one another to make the project complete!
God bless you all!

Your Father in heaven wants you to come home, and so do we, your fellow members of Christ’s body, the Church. The longing you have in your heart can be fulfilled through Jesus and his Catholic Church. You are not alone. Countless of your own brothers and sisters in Christ have returned home, have come back to Confession and to Mass, and have experienced the joy of a renewed relationship with the God who loves them and accepts them unconditionally. Now, you can too.


It can be difficult when we feel like our fellow Christians aren't acting very Christian toward us or toward others. The Church is indeed made up of sinful, imperfect people, who often disappoint. But rather than distancing yourself from the Holy Eucharist and the Catholic Church that Christ founded, consider clinging to Jesus all the more, since he never disappoints. It is helpful, in times of trial and hurt, to remember why you are Catholic—not because all Catholics always represent the mercy and love of Jesus  perfectly well, but because the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus, administers the sacraments, and contains the fullness of Truth, helping all of us to draw closer to God and grow in holiness. Do not allow the actions of some to cause you to lose faith in the Church as a whole. Discuss your frustrations with a priest or deacon at your local parish, and start your journey back to a welcoming home. Above all, do not lose heart. People may disappoint, but God never leaves us, and He is always present in the Catholic Church he founded.


Recognize that your Heavenly Father yearns for you to come home to his Church. Then, go to Confession at your local parish and consider discussing any concerns or questions you may have about returning home with a priest. Begin going to Mass again and experiencing Christ’s presence through worshipping in the liturgy. The Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church are also there to help you on your journey home, as are parish ministries like RCIA or a local returning Catholics group. Know that you are not alone, and do not be afraid to find answers to your questions, both here and through your local Catholic parish community.

2023 Catholic Ministry Appeal

In Gospel, Jesus reveals that a wonderful day is approaching. Of it, He says, “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me and I in you” (John 14:20). It can be easy to miss the magnitude of what He is saying, either because it’s strange or because of our familiarity with His words. He is describing oneness. God is Spirit, inviting us to spiritual oneness with him. The spiritual world can seem so delicate and perfect that it becomes synonymous with “practically irrelevant.” Becoming one with God is possibly the most practical of all things. When Jesus is in you, possibilities are endless: “For God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). And God doesn’t stop at spiritual oneness with us. He wants us to be one with each other, too. Our parish is here to facilitate both. Our Catholic Ministry Appeal needs you to succeed. God is alive in our parish, and we want others to taste and see. Please give to our Catholic Ministry Appeal so that we can help others experience the satisfying love of Jesus. He waits only for our “yes” to bring his transforming light into the lives of his children here!  Let’s get to work! SCAN: THE QR CODE
