Adult Confirmation Sessions - The Adult Confirmation Preparation classes are for parishioners who are out of high school and who have been baptized and received First Communion, but who have yet to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation strengthens the graces we receive in Baptism and fills us with an even greater share of the Holy Spirit. This Sacrament completes our initiation into the Catholic Church.  Our parish will be hosting an adult confirmation session beginning on September 10th.  All sessions will be lead by Deacon Jerome Bettencourt.

Justice Corner

The Justice Corner is devoted to the subject of Justice and will cover, over time, these topics:  what is meant by Justice, especially Social Justice; the Catholic principles of Justice; and critical Justice issues that are seriously impacting our community, our nation and the world. We will also provide some suggestions for action on these issues that readers may wish to consider taking.

Examples of Catholic principles of Justice to be addressed are these: the God-given dignity of every individual, and the implications of this for each of us; our responsibility to practice Justice; and Jesus’ call to us to care for the poor, and for the integrity of all of His Father’s creation. Read More
