This year dinner will be buffet style, with the choice of two meats, sides, salad and bread. Desserts, coffee, tea, water and pop will be included in the price of the dinner. There will be a cash bar for beer and wine.

We will be holding two Exploratory Meetings as we work together to learn what a parish council does and what its functions are. All parishioners are encouraged and welcome to attend:
… Part 1-Monday, January 14th at 7:00 pm in the Hall The first meeting addresses the purpose and function of a pastoral council with what distinguishes it from parish finance council and other ministries and groups
… Part 2-Monday, January 21st at 7:00 pm in the convent The second meeting covers structure, process, relationship with other parish entities, and necessary ingredients for effective meetings.
Parish Wide Meeting
Come and find out what Fr. David has planned for the parish in the upcoming year and beyond, and what direction we are going in. This is also a time to voice any concerns or ask questions that you may have. The meeting will be held on Monday, January 28th at 7:00 pm in the Church. Please come and join us. This is your opportunity to find out directly from our Pastor information on the state and direction of our parish.
Men of God
We are starting up a men’s group called “Men of God”. Our first meeting will be an organizational meeting on Thursday, January 31st at 7:00 pm in the Rectory. We will discuss what we want from the group, when we can meet and how often. This will give the men in the parish an opportunity to come together to pray, support each other and be Men of God. Please go to the Men of God page on this website … 14 HH Men of God page … for a link to a video that will give you a sense of what you can expect.
