Easter Vigil 2024
The Easter Vigil was celebrated on Saturday, March 30, 2024. During the Easter Vigil the Church keeps watch and celebrates Christ's Resurrection, his passing from death to life. The Mass begins outside with the blessing of the Easter fire and the lighting of the Easter candle. At this Mass the sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation are celebrated for those entering the Church. This year we had 10 individuals receive one or more of the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil.
Good Friday 2021

April 2, 2021
The Easter Triduum continued with the service on Good Friday afternoon, celebrating Jesus’ saving death on the wood of the cross. This included the Passion narrative from St. John’s Gospel and veneration of the cross -- with the congregation coming forward to gaze at the cross and offer a gesture of respect to all that it represents.

Parish Day of Service

May 8, 2021Our annual Parish Day of Service was held at the North Church on Saturday, May 8. The day began at 8 a.m. with a prayer in church. There were more than 50 parishioners – school families, Christian Formation families, older parishioners, young parishioners, teens and even a one-year-old – working together to clean up the parish grounds. Of special note were the clean-up of the old foundation and fire pit area, and the garden beds in front of the rectory and around the grounds. It was a beautiful day filled with laughter, conversation and relationship building. Following the morning’s work, there was a pizza lunch on the plaza for fun and fellowship.
