As you cared for Mother and Child, care for all women
May no harm ever endanger them, and may no choice
Guard them with your loving protection, at every

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.

CHRISTMAS PROJECT JOY
What we thought was impossible became possible
This Christmas, many of our local children and seniors awoke to a happier Christmas morning because of your generous support to the parish Christmas Project Joy Gift Card Collection.
We are blessed to have you as a donor and know that you care about meeting the needs of less fortunate in our community as much as we do.
May God continue to bless you!
