    Nine Days to Rediscover the Joy of Prayer is the new book from Fr. Jacques Philippe. We can often find that, despite our good intentions, prayer doesn’t come easily. Allow your heart to be guided toward a joyous prayer life that feeds your soul and revitalizes your relationship with the Lord.

    March is the month devoted to St. Joseph. Visit the Shop to discover the multiple ways which the earthly father of Our Lord continues to protect his earthly children.

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    As we celebrate our Holy Patron St. Patrick (X461), the Apostle of Ireland, let us make the petition of our Novena Prayer our continuing petition: a lively faith, constant hope and a firm will to build God’s Kingdom in our time and place.  We are grateful to Archbishop Prendergast who accepted our invitation to preside and preach at the Sunday 12:15 PM Eucharist.  Next Tuesday ...

    Fr Kevin
