“Moreover, I want to encourage everyone to visit – if possible, every day–especially amid life’s difficulties, the Blessed Sacrament of the infinite love of Christ and His mercy, preserved in our churches...to listen to Him in silence, and to peacefully entrust yourself to Him. ~Pope Francis, July 7, 2016

“Not as man sees does God see, because man sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart.” 1 SAMUEL 16:7
How often do we invest our time, talent and treasure in creating an appearance that does not matter at all to God? We strive to impress with our clothing, home, career, possessions, car and other marks of distinction. But none of these illusions of greatness will impress God. Instead, He will look into our hearts to see how much we loved Him, how much we loved others and how we showed that love by the way we used our time, talents and treasure here on earth.

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner
A HUGE Thank you to all who worked so diligently to make our annual dinner run so smoothly. We could not have a dinner without all the help. The dinner was delicious, we received many compliments...so hats off to the numerous cooks!!
† Jesus, teach us to recognize your presence in those who are in need. May we give of ourselves in service to them and so hasten the coming of the Kingdom you have promised, where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. AMEN.
We will be replacing the roof over the library, sacristy and cry room-parish living room at the approximate cost of $40,000. They are hoping to start on the project around April 1. After the roof is repaired, it will then be necessary to put a new ceiling in the library and the office. If you would like to donate to the Roof Fund, it would be greatly appreciated. $8,590 has already been received-Thank you!
Knights of Columbus Food Drive
Put aside one non-perishable food item each day during the Lenten Season. At the end of Lent, bring your 40 food items to Sts. Peter & Paul. The Knights of Columbus will deliver them to the Food Shelf. Thank you for your generosity.
A special Thank you to all those who volunteered their time at the Food Shelf in February!
