Jesus tells us in this coming Sunday’s Gospel it is not just our outward actions that make a difference; what is more important is what comes straight from our hearts.

This weekend is our monthly Parish-School Eucharist at 9:30 AM. Since we are so close to Valentine’s Day, we will celebrate what comes from our heart.
Our Second and Eighth Grade will sponsor this month’s Eucharist. Hearts of Prayer will be distributed and a treat will be shared. Come straight from your heart and support our students! Share you love this Sunday as we celebrate our valentine Parish-School Eucharist at 9:30 AM.
