Sunday Brunch for the Priory: Volunteers are needed to prepare Sunday Brunch for the Priory, especially for the Sundays in January. Please show your appreciation to our Priests and Religious by cooking one meal for them! We ask for one person/family per weekend, so the more who volunteer, the fewer meals everyone cooks. For more details and to sign up, please visit https://takethemameal.com/PDCI7397. Thank you to all who help feed our Priory!

Church Directory:  We will be partnering with Universal Church Directories to design and print a parish directory. Save the dates: photography sessions will be held January 25th – 29th. You will have the opportunity to purchase family portraits from these sessions. Further details and information will be provided in the coming weeks.
