As we look forward to the celebration of our 150th anniversary as a parish – in 2022, we wanted to provide everyone the opportunity to join in the planning for this yearlong celebration.  Many of you have responded to the sign up survey, which has been available for a number of weeks now in the bulletin, and online.  For those who have requested to join various planning committees, you will soon be hearing from them, to begin organizing and bringing your ideas and plans to fruition.

For those who have not responded to the survey and still wish to join in, stop by the Business Office.  It is still not too late.

We will be offering ongoing updates from time to time, right here on this WEB page.  Continue to pray for our parish, and for the various planning committees, as we get ready for this wonderful 150th anniversary year.  Remember, there has never been a better time to actively engage in our great parish family.
