Our Lady Of Fatima Statue
You might have noticed, we have begun preparing the area to the west of the side doors of the church, along the old hall, for the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. A dedicated group has raised over $9,000, which allowed us to engage an artist in Italy who sculpted a beautiful statue of our Blessed Mother. With the statue paid for and two more large donations totaling $6,700 we are about $4,000 from having the total needed to complete the project. In addition to the statue, there will be an area surrounding her with flowers and bushes.
We would like to have a fund to maintain this area we call Mary’s Garden. Donations to finish this project and maintain it can be marked Our Lady of Fatima Statue and mailed to the office or dropped in the collection basket. This beautiful statue of our Blessed Mother and the garden around it will be a wonderful place for prayer and peace.

All people are called to actively participate in the liturgy. For children, that may mean having the Sunday scriptures and reflection presented to them in a way they can fully understand. If you would like to help plan a Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 10:00 Mass, please call Joyce Teixeira in the parish office, 491-3468. Thank you!

Social Justice Ministry Corner - Respect Life In This Jubilee Year Of Mercy
This week’s theme: Moved by Mercy - Death Penalty

This week’s focus is on death penalty or better yet, on the people condemned to the death penalty. Before we can concentrate on the legal aspects of the death penalty, we need to first examine how we may be guilty of dehumanizing these people and how we can try, with God’s help, to see these men and women the way God sees them, imagining what are God’s hopes for them. Once we have experienced an inner conversion then we will be moved to action.
Life, human life above all, belongs to God alone. Not even a murderer loses his personal dignity... (Pope Francis, 3/20/15)

Youth Group Come join us for Tuesday & Thursday morning Mass & breakfast, 8 am to noon in the hall. Youth Group is open to all 6th-12th graders. Please contact Katie Steffanic, Youth Minister, at 524-7421 or Ksteffanic@gmail.com with any questions.

Can You Spend One Hour With Me?
Jesus asked His Apostles, “Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?” This is a beautiful way to spend quiet time in the presence of our Lord. Hours for exposition are: 12 noon to 5:00 pm, Thursdays.

Are you a registered parishioner?
Have you moved, changed phone numbers, or had other changes since registering? Help us to keep our records up to date by letting us know when changes happen—call the parish office at 524-7421 or go to the
Update Form page to change your address. Do you consider yourself a member of the parish? If you do, but have not registered, please do so. Please call the parish office at 524-7421. Periodically we mail out information and would hate to have you miss out on what is happening because you haven’t let us know you are part of us. Help us to be a more welcoming parish

For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

Don’t Be A Victim
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people who watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities. Don’t be a victim!
