►First Confession & Solemn Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, June 26, 2022 with a Solemn Divine Liturgy at 8:30am. The candidates this year are: Elizabeth Smithler and Cooper Ruff. Please pray that God bless them with all necessary graces, as they are making this important step forward in their spiritual life! I urge all parents of the candidates to receive the Sacrament of Confession a week before this celebration. I will be available to hear confession before or after each Liturgy on Saturday and Sunday. It is extremely important that parents set an example to their children who are preparing to receive God’s forgiveness for the first time.
►NO PARISH FESTIVAL in 2022 – Dear parishioners, the Parish Summer Festival is being canceled this year.
