Recently someone asked “who are the Church Ladies we see mentioned in the bulletin”? Despite what many have thought for several years, “Church Ladies” is not a WHO but rather a WHAT. It is not a group of pious old women who get together just to pray. It is a study group for women of the parish (all ages), and you are invited to attend. We meet after morning Mass on the first Friday of each month, and usually all Fridays during Lent and Advent.
The first book the group studied was on prominent women in the early church – and the name “Church Ladies” just stuck. Over time our study has included The Joy of the Gospel and books on Mary, the Eucharist and Repentance, to name a few. Our current book is Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroes – imperfect men and women who God chose to help spread his kingdom.
Those who come have found it to be a rewarding way to continue learning and experiencing their faith. And now you know!

"Act I" of the 50th Anniversary of our parish was a very special picnic for nearly 700 folks on July 19, 2015. If you would like to see more photos from the picnic, just click on the photo below. They aren't in any order. Photos taken by Kathy Petr and Katie Gordon, with 1 photo taken by Melani Ward.
Sometimes souvenirs are not very practical, but as you can see, this one is!
You can get one -- or more -- in the Parish Office.
