Fr. A. Stephen Marcoux, III

Pastor - Weekly Note

Message for 07/15/18
Dear Parish Family, 

This weekend in the Steubenville East youth gathering in Lowell, MA and I am very happy that Samuel and Zachary Cusson are going to experience this powerful weekend in New England. They will be with thousands of youth and will meet new friends who share their faith journey. They will find support for the journey of being a young man in the world and how their Catholic faith can be the great gift of their lives.
I am so pleased that Monica Kissell and Monica Melton along with Zach Cusson, Sammi D'Amico and Ryan Hueber will be receiving the gift of Confirmation in the fall.
It is impressive that our young people continue to serve at Mass. I am beginning to see the formation of a small faith community for their age group.
Our Sacramental preparation will begin in September. More information coming soon. We are looking to gather on the third Saturday of each month for Mass at 4:00 pm, followed by potluck and Sacramental preparation. We have 13 adult catechists and we will gather as a group in early September and plan the year ahead. We presently have about a dozen children. If you are interested in having your child receive the sacraments, leave a message with Julie in the office and we will register you. Start thinking!

God Bless,
Fr. Steve, Your Pastor
