The Blessed Mother Church Burgoo Team will have a burgoo cook Saturday, December 8th at the burgoo barn on 22nd St. Sales will begin at 1:00 PM and the proceeds will go to the Blessed Mother Church, St. Vincent DePaul.
Are you an intentional disciple of Jesus Christ? Is the Bible relevant in our lives today? How much time do we spend with Jesus? What is the Catechism of the Catholic Church? If you have questions about your Catholic faith, then show up and ask them.
This year long, open group will meet from 6 to 7 PM on the Wednesdays, with an opportunity for adults and teenagers (with their parent/ guardian) to ask questions about their Catholic faith. We won't go into personal stories, but will start with the Gospel readings for the upcoming week and discuss topics on marriage, abortion, immigration, and anything else. We will meet in the St. John Bosco room inside the Parish Hall. Click here for the schedule.

A Message from our Pastor
Below is the most erudite and contrite expression I have found to date regarding recent events that have angered, upset and challenged me and many others. My heart goes out to victims. My commitment to continue to work for the protection of all the vulnerable remains unperturbed. My dedication as a priest remains strong, by the grace of God. Join me in rededicating yourself to be Christ's disciple, admit shortcomings and sins, then move forward to be an agent of change in our Church and in the world. May God strengthen and sustain us, Fr. Mike Clark
