Artisans of peace

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

This week we remembered another anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. At the time, Pope St. John Paul II sent the following message:

“I am confident that in this time of trial all Americans will find their religious faith a source of renewed hope and the impetus for an ever more determined resolve to reject the ways of hatred and violence.

To those affected by this immense tragedy I hold up the light of the Gospel and pray that by the prompting of the Holy Spirit they will be led to an ever-closer union with the Lord Jesus Christ in the mystery of His cross and resurrection. To all I solemnly repeat the Gospel injunction not to be conquered by evil, but to conquer evil with good, to trust in the power of God’s grace to transform human hearts and to work fearlessly to shape a future of justice, peace and security for the children of our world… I cordially invoke the divine gifts of wisdom, strength and perseverance in good. To all the faithful I cordially impart my apostolic blessing as a pledge of comfort and peace in the Lord.”


The bells in the tower are in need of heavy maintenance. We have signed a contract with the vendor who installed them when the church was built in the 1920s.

The cost to replace the mechanism and refurbish the bells is in excess of $ 85,000.

We are requesting donations to defray the expenses. If you are moved to help with this project, please call the parish office or send an earmarked contribution.
