Our diocese in the academic year of 2015-2016 is fortunate to have 23 seminarians in formation for priestly service to our diocesan church. One of the ways to support our diocesan seminarians formation is through the 2016 Annual Catholic Services Appeal. If you have responded to this appeal, Thank You so very much! If you need a pledge card or further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at our Parish Office (793-1330).
Enjoy God's beauty that is this time of the year!
