First Saturday Devotion:

Pentecost Sunday is here and are we willing to give everything to Jesus? He gave His life for us so that we might understand the truest meaning of giving for others.

Let us enrich our lives by preparing for new beginnings in our lives, our church and the community we live in and beyond.

Come join us Saturday, June 4. Mass begins at 8:00 am followed by video teaching, rosary and confession. Blessed Mother and Holy Spirit be our guide.
