Trunk or Treat!

The QR codes takes you to the link to sign-up as a Trunker. For more information contact Beverly at or call the Parish Office, 239-455-3900.

A Day of Fasting and Prayer

Cardinal Pizzaballa, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, has asked all the faithful of the world to make Tuesday October 17, “a day of fasting abstinence, and prayer” for peace in the Middle East. Therefore, our church will be open all day for prayer, with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 8:30 until 11:00AM and from 6:00 to 8:00 PM with Confessions and Praise and Worship as usual. Please join us in praying for peace in our world especially in the Holy Land.
