Welcome from Fr. Kris McKusky
For you hear the words, “The Body of Christ” and respond “Amen.” Be then a member of the Body of Christ, that your “Amen” may be true. (St. Augustine, Sermo 272)
The words of St. Augustine remind us of the transforming power of the Eucharist: that we are to become who we have received. As Catholic-Christians, we are to be Christ’s presence to the world serving God and neighbor. The Eucharist strengthens and transforms us, giving us the power and energy that we need to go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your lives.
Words from Pope Francis
“Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.”
"I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful: it needs nearness, proximity."
To promote a strong Catholic faith community by
- encouraging & enabling active participation on parish committees
- strengthening religious education on all levels, youth to adults
- fostering parish growth
- addressing facility needs
To Pray, Learn, Serve, and Share
To follow what Pope Francis is encouraging us to do and be.
To "be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself" in outreach.
To "heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful"

I recently became Catholic and keep hearing about all of the stuff you have that is “blessed.” Someone even gave me a holy card that they said had been blessed. I like the idea, I just don’t know what it means for something to be blessed.
I am glad that you are asking this question. Even though you haven’t been Catholic for very long, you know that it is good for Catholics to ask questions. In this case, your question is one that not a lot of Catholics even know about. Hopefully this response will not only help you, but them as well.Read More

In politics today, people have fallen into the habit of condemning the evil in other persons, groups, structures, or oppressor classes, while they themselves embrace the role of victim.
It is hard to see a way out of our current predicament, other than a new Great Awakening through a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit.Read More

Easter Message 2014
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Christ died and rose once for all, and for everyone, but the power of the Resurrection, this passover from slavery to evil to the freedom of goodness, must be accomplished in every age, in our concrete existence, in our everyday lives. How many deserts, even today, do human beings need to cross! Above all, the desert within, when we have no love for God or neighbor, when we fail to realize that we are guardians of all that the Creator has given us and continues to give us. God's mercy can make even the driest land become a garden, can restore life to dry bones (cf. Ez 37:1-14).
So this is the invitation which I address to everyone: Let us accept the grace of Christ's Resurrection! Let us be renewed by God's mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.
And so we ask the risen Jesus, who turns death into life, to change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace. Yes, Christ is our peace, and through him we implore peace for all the world.
