Prophets proclaimed the consequences of continued sin, called people to repentance, and declared God’s faithful love. They also spoke of the future to shed light on current events and to reveal God’s plans and purposes. In this study of the "Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy," discover how God is constantly calling you to a deeper relationship with Him, as well as the ways you are called to be the voice of God to others. To register for this FREE Bible study, send email to Deacon Gary or Val Streff.

    ARE YOU AN ADULT WHO IS THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC? Have you been wondering about God? Do you feel like there is something missing in your life? Does it seem as though you have a spiritual yearning deep within you that is not fulfilled? Do you feel as though God is calling you in some internal way? Do you long for more meaning to your life or the life of your family? Our parish OCIA is designed to help you answer those questions and prepare you for Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Sessions take place Sundays at 9:30am to 11am. For details, contact Director Robin Oania at robinoania@yahoo.com.

    OUR PARISH HAS JOINED WITH OTHER PARISHES across the islands in a nationwide effort to increase outreach and support for pregnant and parenting mothers in need. We need all of you to join us by praying for all mothers and for the Culture of Life to be an integral part of our community. Let us be like our Blessed Virgin Mary who went in haste to help her cousin Elizabeth when she heard she was pregnant. Mary stayed with her for three months. Mothers, we are in this together, mothers helping other mothers. We have a brochure for you to keep and hope you will contact us if and when you know of a woman in need. We will do everything in our power to assist in whatever way we can. Pregnant and parenting moms in need are in our parishes and our neighborhoods. We are to be a community of mercy and love for them during their difficult times so they can once again get back on their feet.
