Thank you to all those who generously contribute much needed items for our troops. The drop box located in the Narthex has lists of items that are needed and appreciated by our deployed military. At this time our supplies of protein bars, beef or turkey jerky, coffee (individual) packets and drink mix (individual) packets are low. Prior to Christmas, as well as throughout the year, hundreds of care packages were sent to deployed troops, by a local organization. Your help is much appreciated. If you have an address of a deployed troop, please send to email@example.com. We ask that the packages we send are given to those who don't get any mail or care packages. Your prayers for our troops are always needed for their mental, spiritual and physical health and safety.
Catholic Bytes Podcast offers short, dynamic talks about the faith. Like our own Fr. Brian Graebe, priests studying in Rome created these podcasts "to offer dynamic catechesis for people on the move. Most people do not have time to sit down and study the faith, so these episodes offer an opportunity to learn more about Catholicism or to grow in your relationship with the Lord, in short 5-10 minute sessions."
" Episodes offer listeners a variety of themes ranging from faith fundamentals, Scripture, dogma, morals, liturgy, spirituality, saints, and Church history."Listen to this one about St. Kateri.
"Get to know Christ and His Church through this dynamic and engaging media!"
