Diocesan Services Appeal
“Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving.” This text from the Book of Psalms reminds each of us of how we are to respond to the many gifts we have been given by God, and that greatest gift: the gift of His Son in the Holy Eucharist. Many blessings from God call forth from us many thanks, even sacrificial thanks.
Our Diocesan Services Appeal is one such opportunity to give God thanks for his great gifts; for the work of the Church in our own lives and in lives across our diocese.
Thank you to those who have made a pledge to DSA. We have $ 16,589.00 toward our parish goal of $17,013.00. If you have not yet made a pledge, please prayerfully consider how you and your family will respond to this call to carry on Christ’s work in our community.

It has been 45 years since I experienced my high school graduation. In anticipation to that threshold in life, I thought of life beginning anew outside of high school. It was the uncharted territory of life outside of the four walls of high school that made it exciting for me. Reaching the age of reason inside those walls, and being guided by prayer and faith while inside those same walls, added to my excitement of the future. But I credit my formation of being an independent adult to my parents who were my first teachers in life and my primary teachers in adult life. And to the Church for my being able to navigate life as a faithful adult. In a world that is promoting materialism for my salvation, it is only in Jesus that I am certain to find it. Today you are at that threshold. I pray for you as does the Church, as you emerge into an independent adult. Looking to Jesus and his Church in all your endeavors will lead you in the right direction. Jesus says, “I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you.” Do not abandon him in his faithfulness and salvation will be yours.
