How can we publicly acknowledge this important day on our

calendar when so many of us will be behind closed doors?




What if every Family on Sunday April 5 in the morning,

puts a branch on the door of their house or on the

window, to celebrate Palm Sunday?

It could be any green branch you can get. Or you could get the blessed palm from Church. This would help, despite the social distancing, to be connected as we enter into the Holiest of Weeks.


Want to join?

We may be physically isolated, but not separated.

We are united as the body of Christ.

We are the Church.

The Blessed Palms will be made available for pick up on Saturday, April 4th, from 2:00pm to 7:00pm and on Sunday, April 5th from 7:00am to 7:00pm.

Please enter the entrance from the parking lot.

Have A Blessed Palm Sunday and Holy Week!

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Stay strong & Stay Safe.


If you wish to drive by and pick up  palms

please Enter on Ennis St.

and Exit  on Rosedale St. during hours of mass.

There would be no need to exit your vehicle.

Stay Blessed and Safe.

Human Trafficking

Prayer for an End to Human Trafficking

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you across the world in prayer to pray for the abolishment of human trafficking in all its forms. Save the victims, help them to receive the proper guidance, counseling, shelter and healing that is needed for them to overcome this violent act, we humbly pray. Flood the hearts of those committing these acts, so they may come to know Your Grace. Thank you, Lord, for your angels here on earth who serve and protect these vulnerable peoples. Through the intercession of St. Josephine Bakhita, Patroness of charity and patience, bring us the spirit of wisdom and love. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, be our protector. Grant us the courage, strength, and ability to fight successfully to end the scourge of human trafficking. We ask this through,

Christ Our Lord. Amen. Hail Mary …
