Sunday Coffee is back
Spring has sprung and the smell of coffee is back on Sundays after morning Masses! Children playing, and families sharing stories bring back warmth to the parish community! We praise God for the good weather and for each other.
PREP confirmation students spend their mornings helping out in the parish as welcomers and servers at Sunday coffee. One of them commented in their journal about helping out:
“ I felt shy to offer help at the start, but then I started to enjoy it because the people were so nice!”

A prayer for peace in Ukraine
Development and Peace appeals and prays for peace in Ukraine and calls the faithful to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. As an organization committed to justice and peace, we strongly condemn all acts of military aggression.
In the coming days, large numbers of people will likely end up displaced, needing help with meeting their basic needs. We have therefore made an immediate allocation of $75,000 to help with the provision of food, shelter, medical care and transport to safe locations. In addition, we ask for your solidarity and support to help us respond to the needs on the ground.
Last but not least, thank you for joining us in praying for peace
