The Transfiguration of the Lord - What Does it Mean to Us?

Many Catholics have questions about what this passage is all about. Father Rick Poblocki made the following responses to some of these questions: What is the Transfiguration? What changes occurred in our Lord? Why were the three Apostles allowed to witness Jesus’ Transfiguration?

Summer Spiritual Retreat ? A Great Idea and Easier than You Think!

Spiritual Retreats are a wonderful way to help us "let go and let God".

Retreats can be individual or in a group; directed or undirected; for just a day, overnight or for a weekend. Whatever fits your need you can find close to home or a little farther away.

Fr. Smith recently spoke at Mass about the importance of retreats to feed our spirit and bring us closer to our God who can't wait to spend time with us and shower us with His grace.

August - Month Dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The month of August (Overview - Calendar) is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Since the 16th century Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue, and inner life. Such devotion is an incentive to a similar love and virtue.

Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesdays - 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.


"Every Holy Hour we make so pleases the Heart of Jesus that it is recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity!" St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Everyone is welcome and invited to spend time with Jesus - this is the most wonderful way to meet, talk, and listen to Him.

St. Teresa’s Eucharistic Adoration takes place on Wednesdays from after the 8:30 a.m. Mass (9:00 a.m. approximately) to 1:00 p.m. There will be no benediction.
Call the rectory (934-4227) for more information.

Bible Study - The Bible is not boring!

We continue the FIRST and THIRD Thursdays of the month at 7:00 p.m.: August 3 & 17, 2017. Bring your bible and be guided through God's inspired word by Dr. Phil Gigliotti.
