We are looking for adults (parents, grandparents or other adult parishioners) and 9th-12th grade youth volunteers, who can commit to help teach our amazing Catholic faith once a month. All material will be provided, and we will gather as a group to plan and train on the curriculum for this academic year. With the help of volunteers, we are planning to have smaller age-specific groups, in addition to our monthly family nights, which provide additional instruction and age- appropriate learning. The success of this program depends on dedicated volunteers invested in the future of our church. If you would like to volunteer, please reach out to Melissa at
As our current Faith Formation leadership team is changing, with Jen and Melissa moving on, we wanted to reach out to our families to assure them we are working to create and continue to offer comprehensive programs that embrace our families and their children in the growth and demonstration of their love of Jesus, His teachings and their Catholic faith. You will shortly be introduced to one of our newest Faith Formation leaders who will continue to build upon the current Confirmation program while providing an additional focus for all children receiving their sacraments in the coming academic year - to include First Holy Communion. Please stay tuned and access the faith formation registration link on our church website as registration remains open until September 1st.We have been very fortunate to have Jen and Melissa leading our programs and are grateful that Jen will continue to walk with our current 10th grade class as they receive their sacrament of Confirmation in October.Please reach out to the church office if you have any questions or if you would like to be part of the team providing insight and teaching for our faith formation population.
Registration is Open and Waiting for You. It is hard to believe that we are already into August and the Fall decorations are already in stores along with back-to-school supplies. With back-to-school, it also means Back-to-Family Faith Formation.
We are excited to build upon the family faith formation program by providing sessions and resources to parents; proven curriculum for children to learn about and demonstrate their faith; gatherings; and service opportunities that continue to nurture and express our Catholic faith.
A huge thanks to Phil Schadtle (Mike’s brother), who donated his time and equipment last week to help us resolve a large issue with the water at the rectory. This included excavating around the well pipe and back filling. This was a much larger job than we thought. We could not have accomplished this so efficiently and quickly if it weren’t for Phil.

Last month, you held a collection for gently used furniture and household goods to be used to furnish the apartments of our clients moving out of homelessness and into housing. Your drive completely filled our box truck and overwhelmed us with caring! The support you and your members have given to our organization, and our clients, is incredible and so very appreciated. We at Journey Home thank you sincerely for the generosity of your community.
Congratulation to the Zito, Magro, and Neumuth families.
