  • Ascension of the Lord - May 12, 2024 

  • Pentecost Sunday - May 19, 2024 

  • Bishop Parkes will celebrate Mass with the children of St. Peter Claver on May 15, 2024. 

The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year initiative of the bishops of the United States to renew our devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.  At this particular moment for the Church in the United States, with its many challenges, the National Eucharistic Revival is an opportunity to reflect on Christ’s gift of Himself in the Eucharist and our response to that gift. Join us on this journey to reflect on the importance of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. As Pope John Paul II said about the Eucharist, “Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love.”

VOCATIONS: it's the work of us all!

Pray for more vocations and
for those discerning or already in formation.

Baptism is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation.  The other two are Confirmation and Eucharist. Before the celebration of baptism, the Church expects parents and sponsors to be formed in its meaning and responsibilities. For info on Baptism please call the parish office and to schedule an appointment with Deacon Ben.
