Sunday in the Octave of Christmas

Thank you! The priests and brothers would like to extend our sincere thanks to all those who contributed to making the Christmas liturgy so beautiful. The choir, decorators, and servers all did beautiful work for the glory of God and their efforts are much appreciated. Many thanks also to everyone who showered us so generously with gifts, cards, and prayers. We are very grateful and you will all be in our prayers during this holy season.

Congratulations to our Academy students and faculty for raising $128,000 from our Jog-a-thon! The children continue to pray for our generous benefactors, and a novena of Masses is being offered for your intentions. Thank you for your support of our parish school!
