    • Carlos Roldan at the Fr. English Food Pantry was grateful for the food and checks we recently delivered from OLM. He told us that the pantry is distributing 1,000 bags of food every day. We were told that normally the pantry helped 7,000 families a month, but it has swelled to 11,000. The reality of that was evident by the line of people stretching around the block waiting to receive a bag of food. As we brought the food into the pantry, it also became apparent of the low food supply on the shelves. Carlos regards OLM as one of the special parishes he relies on. Thank you and God Bless!

    • May is the Month of Our Lady, one rich in tradition and a beautiful time of the year to honor our heavenly mother. She cares for all of us every day without fail, interceding for us in even the tiniest matters.

    • From the RISE Leadership Team: We just heard from RISE Headquarters. Sadly, yet wisely, they decided to cancel this year's mission trip. All the Rise teen's families will be contacted and refunds processed, as necessary. The funds raised this year will be used next year. Stay safe during these trying times.

  • phony emails and phone calls

    UPDATE 4/17/19:


    Someone with an affiliation with the parish (parishioner, staff, etc.) had their address book hacked.  The hackers are using the email addresses and, in some instances phone numbers, to impersonate Fr. Steve or  Msgr. Carroll and social engineer others in that address book.  Don’t respond to any of these solicitations.  To protect yourself, please change your email password as you could have been the  party compromised.    Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!

    Car Ad for Parish

    If you have not yet responded to the 2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, there is still time to do so since the 2019 Appeal funds ministries and programs through the end of the diocesan fiscal year on June 30, 2020.  Your gift is a great blessing and valued so we can serve Christ by serving his people.  For your convenience, you can make an online gift at www.2019appeal.org.


    Father of goodness and love; hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need.  Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence.  Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts.  We ask this through the lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen
