Seasonal Time Change for Sunday 7 p.m. Mass
Attention, all parishioners: In response to parishioner concerns that Sunday’s 7:00 p.m. Mass is too late, especially throughout the long winter months, a decision was made to implement a seasonal time change from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. During the summer months, Memorial Day through Labor Day, Sunday evening Mass will still be at 7:00 p.m. However, during the fall and winter months, from the weekend after Labor Day through the weekend before Memorial Day, Sunday evening Mass will be at 5:00 p.m. This time change, from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., will go into effect the Sunday after Labor Day, September 7th, 2014. This seasonal time change is only for the Sunday evening Mass. We hope this change will allow all parishioners to enjoy the longer hours of daylight throughout the summer months and to be home and warm earlier throughout the winter months.
Seasonal Time Change for Sunday 7 p.m. Mass:
7 p.m. from Memorial Day, May 26, 2014,
through Labor Day, September 1, 2014.
5 p.m. from September 7, 2014,
through May 17, 2015.
Returns again to 7 p.m. May 25, 2015.

Prayer for Our Country
Every Friday at 3 p.m. in Church
Help put God back in America! If you are concerned about the direction our country is taking, please join us in church every Friday at 3 p.m. We will pray for help to reverse the drift away from God and freedom, to give us the courage to reject the culture of death, and the strength to build a new culture of life and to stir the hearts of our leaders so we remain one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all. The more voices, the stronger our prayer.

Please remember to join us in the Father Bush Parish Center after the 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 12:00 p.m. Masses. We have coffee and donuts after the Sunday morning Masses and pizza is served after the 12:00 p.m. Mass. Come visit with your fellow parishioners.
