A message from Father Harris:

Welcome to our parish website!

It is my hope that through this website you will see that our parish is an extended and close knit family. It is here that we are born again in Baptism as Children of God. It is here that we learn from fellow family members the way of the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is here that many of our members were married in the sight of God and his Church’s ministers with family and friends as witnesses. The parish is like a mother who gives us consolation and strength in the midst of the inevitable trials and sorrows of life, but also rejoices with us in the triumphs and victories of life. As a family is strengthened and nurtured as its members gather around the family table and hearth, parish members are nurtured at the Holy Altar of the Sacrifice of the Mass as well as the other sacraments; we feel the Lord’s presence through the quiet moments of prayer in our churches and in fellowship with other members in our church meeting halls.

In Christ,

Fr. Glenn H. Harris

Ministries

And Jesus answered him;

“It is written,

Man shall not live by bread alone.’”


“When you give a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your rich neighbors—for they will invite you back, and in this way you will be paid for what you did.When you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind; and you will be blessed, because they are not able to pay you back. God will repay you on the day the good people rise from death.”
