Youth Ministry Meets Every Week; Youth Mass Every Fourth Sunday Each Month

Youth Ministry hosts its youth-oriented Mass the fourth Sunday each month at 5:30 PM. This new event will be filled with contemporary music and a message that relates directly to teens.
Youth Ministry needs Teen Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, musicians and singers. If you are interested in helping out with this mass please contact Youth Minister Kurt Martin at
Following the 5:30 Mass every Sunday the Youth Ministry meets from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM and welcomes all 9th – 12th graders to attend. Youth Ministry nights are held in the parish center after Mass and dinner will be provided.
This week we will be discussing love for God and our neighbor. How do we do that is our world? What does
that look like? Do you struggle with loving our neighbor? We will answer these questions and more.

Bishop Patrick J. McGrath Statement on Clergy Disclosure List

“There can no longer be a culture of secrecy in the Church, but one of transparency and account
ability. Our work will not be complete until all of those who have been harmed have received assistance in healing and until the evil of child sexual abuse has been eradicated from society.” — Patrick J. McGrath

Finance Committee Updates

Find an update on the Parish Finance Committee and its current members at (scroll down to Committee).

The Church’s financial year ended on June 30, 2018. The parish records were reviewed by the Finance Council this summer and they confirmed that the parish maintains its financial records according to Diocese requirements and that appropriate controls are in place to safeguard parish resources. A report of last year’s operations, the 2017-2018 budget and the 2018-2019 budget are provided on the page indicated above.

Please note the following:
• The parish receives no funding from outside sources or from the St. Frances Cabrini
School and relies completely on the generosity of parishioners through Sunday
collections, and the profits from Bingo, the Fiesta and bocce ball court rentals. In
particular, Bingo has been and continues to be a critical activity which generated
approximately $150,000 of net revenue during the 2017-2018 fiscal year. Your
continued support through participation as well as volunteering to help run Bingo is
greatly appreciated.

• The parish ran the Faithfully Funding Our Future campaign during the year to help
increase weekly collections. The parish saw a 20% increase in weekly collections
which has helped to fund a youth minister for the parish.

• In 2018-2019, we will continue to perform overdue maintenance and repairs on our
facilities. Chief among these will be the replacement of the Essig Hall gym floor, which
is being funded by both parish and school, and installing new water mains for parish
and school.
