2021 is the Year of St. Joseph:
150 years ago, Pope Pius IX in his decree Quemadmodum named St. Joseph Patron of the Universal Church. To commemorate this 150th anniversary, Pope Francis in his Patris Corde (With a Father's Heart) declared December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 the Year of St Joseph.
October's theme is St. Joseph, Terror of Demons
Demons hate humility, suckled as they are on the vice of pride. Joseph's humility is what terrifies the demons. He is entrusted with power and autority not simply because of his internal strength but because of his complete reliance upon and fidelity to God.
St. Mary's Hospitality Campaign
We are hoping to replace the tile flooring in our Social Hall and school basement hallway. In addition, we would like to fill the need for an accessible restroom in our Social Hall.
We are calling this our "St. Mary's Hospitality Campaign" and we are asking for your help. If either or both of these needs is valuable to you, please take part in this campaign.
Thank you for your consideration and generosity!
Our main corridor in the basement of the school building is a high-traffic area. Notice the considerable wear in these sections of the floor.
This is the entrance to the room on the north side of our Social Hall we are planning to convert into a single-occupanct unisex restrooom.
