Dear Parish Family,

Soon fall will be in full swing and so much awaits us in our parishes.  Our Youth Group is getting underway as I type this, our Adult formation programs will be starting soon. There will be many opportunities for us to get together as a family. It truly is an exciting time.


As we settle in to our fall and winter routines, I think it is important for us to focus.  Focus on what you may ask.  The answer to that is rather simple and yet profound.  We need to focus on Jesus and our relationship with him. As we get busy with all the wonderful things of the fall and winter, please make provision for your families’ spiritual growth.


Seek to participate in our programs and if you or your family has not signed up for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration, please do so. We have a constant vigil or prayer to the King of Kings in our chapel at St. Philips We also have 1st Friday Adoration at Corpus Christi.  It is very important that all of our families participate in this. Next to the Mass, it is the strongest way to grow in our relationship with Jesus.  If you go to the chapel entrance way, there is information on how to sign up and a list of hours that we need filled.  Also look for the sign-up sheet at Corpus Christi on the cry room door before each 1st Friday.  Adoring our Lord Jesus in prayer as a community is the best weapon we have in these troubling times in the Church. Let us all do our part to strengthen our communities in prayer.



In the Heart of Christ,

Fr. Dusty Burns
