A few words...

Please join me in sending a huge THANK YOU to the Tompkins family and Eugene Kim for organizing, yet another, successful Spaghetti Dinner in the spirit of tradition. Hats off to our meatball crew, noodlers, and servers! Thank you to all who came out this weekend to Open House and to support the Spaghetti Dinner! It was such a joy to visit and see all the smiling faces and community of parishioners, alumni, students, teachers, and parents interacting in the spirit of Christ.

A word from the Pastor...

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Peace and Good!

Our first Festival of Praise was a resounding success! 342 folks showed up in the church to lift up their voices in praise and in prayer to the Lord! God is good!

My thanks go out to Ali Poteet and her Praise Team, and to all of you for being there!

I invite you to join us at our next Festival of Praise, with Eucharistic Adoration, on:

Sunday, February 26th, from 5:00-6:00pm in the church

All are welcome!

God bless,

Fr. Luke
