Confirmation Mass

Confirmation Mass will be celebrated this coming Thursday, April 30, at 6pm. All Confirmation sponsors are invited to come a little bit early since we have a rehearsal/ practice before Mass at 5:15pm. We had a change of bishops: Richard Garcia could not come but our retired bishop Sylvester Ryan is going to be the main presider. We are honored to welcome in our midst Bishop Ryan – it’s been many years since he visited us here. Thank you Bishop! Congratulations to our wonderful young people receiving the sacrament of Confirmation, to their sponsors and families: Said Aragon, Spencer Ganos, Yessica Garcia, Irvin Hernandez, Kimberly Hernandez, Sam Klemek, Ian McKay, Christiana Smith!

Note that there is no morning Mass on this day.

New parishioners welcome dinner

Once or twice a year we have a nice welcome dinner for all our new parishioners. If you registered with the parish from 2014 till now, we would like to invite you to this delicious dinner which will take place on May 16, at 5:30pm – after our Vigil Mass. Please send us an email to confirm your attendance and let us know how many adults and children are attending. Looking forward to share a meal together!

AMA — last chance!!

This weekend we close our AMA appeal. Donation envelopes are available in the pews and at the entrance of the church. Last year we were the most successful parish in the diocese in donations per households. Heartfelt thanks to those of you who already donated. I challenge each family to consider participating in one way or another, it doesn’t matter the amount. Funds over the diocesan goal ($11,100) will return to the parish and will be used for our church spring repairs: church foundation/floor repairs and installing a new carpet in the church and facilities. Our goal is to raise 75k. We will be successful if you decide to participate!!!

Time to apply for scholarships

Did you know that this year we have five scholarships offered for those seniors graduating from high-school and/or current students at community colleges or universities? Three of them are merit based: Robert P. Balles Annual Award for Academic Excellence ($1200), Blankley Scholarship Program (two scholarships this year $1000 each), Luiz Community College Scholarship for $750. One scholarship is merit based, OLMC Shining Star Scholarship Award for $1000. Please visit our website for details about each award/scholarship; complete the application form (available online) and submit it along with a copy of verifying high-school transcripts and college/university acceptance copy to the parish office by May 15.
