“After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God….” - Mark 1:14  Do you ever think about how difficult it must have been for Jesus to come into Galilee, knowing that John had just been arrested for teaching the same message that Jesus was proclaiming. It must have taken great love and trust for Jesus to do what the Father had sent Him here on earth to do. In the same way, following a life of stewardship takes great love and trust from us. We must be willing to surrender completely to God, trusting that God will always give us all that we need to fulfill His plan for us.

2018 Diocesan Annual Appeal

We are pleased to announce the beginning of the Diocesan Annual Appeal.  The Diocesan goal for the Appeal has been raised for the first time in three years by $10,000 and is now $900,000.  This goal is shared and pro-rated among our 66 parishes based on the prior year’s offertory. Our parish goal for 2018 is $ 9,271.00 which is a decrease of   $ 416.00.   You will each receive an Annual Appeal letter from Bishop Hoeppner at home in your mailbox.  Enclosed will be a brochure that outlines how DAA funds are spent during the year. Envelopes and prayer cards are available here in our own parish.  Please pray about a gift to the Annual Appeal.  It feels great to  support the work of the Church! Check out our website at to see what a wonderful impact your gift will make.  Prayer request cards are enclosed in all the mailings from Bishop Hoeppner. Whether or not you are able to make a gift, Bishop asks that you mail in your prayer requests so that he and his staff can pray for your intentions at daily Mass.
