I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord. May the joy of this most holy season fill the hearts of all families this time of year!
After many weeks of work, prayers, and Sunday Mass in the day chapel, the sanctuary renewal is finally complete! As the final elements came together last week, I found our new place for Jesus to be quite lovely. I could only think of the 84th psalm, which begins: "How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord [...]
After waiting for months to get a new puppy, I finally was able to take home a new golden retriever puppy last Thursday! He is such a sweet puppy, and turns out to be a half nephew of Noah! I am delighted with him! I have named him Elijah, and I hope everyone enjoys him. [...]
I would like to wish everyone a most blessed Thanksgiving today. God is so good to us, we all have so much for which to be thankful. Make sure to take time to tell everyone how important they are to you and how grateful you are for them!

We will be beginning construction on Monday, September 15, and it is expected to last no more than two months (though with construction, of course, anything can happen!)

Late last week, I received a letter from the Archbishop congratulating us on our speedy fundraising for the sanctuary project, and giving us permission to begin construction. His letter was even dated August 21, 2014, [...]
On Saturday, August 25, we had our first ( of hopefully many!) Pius Nights. It was an evening designed to provide enjoyable food and entertainment while at the same time teaching a little bit about our faith, and by many accounts did just that. The food was awesome thanks to Iris and her team. The [...]
