Parish Patron Feast Day
On Wednesday, August 4, we celebrate the feast day of Saint John Vianney, our parish patron. We invite you to join us for daily Mass at 7:30 AM to celebrate the life of this great saint in the context of the Mass.
Last year, we hosted a webinar with Fr. Frederick Miller who is an expert in the life and spirituality of Saint John Vianney. A recording of the webinar can be viewed on our Pastoral Webinar Series page.
Let us continue to pray to our great patron saint for the holiness of our parish, our priests, and our families!
Saint John Vianney, you were blessed with a loving and devout family who supported your desire to increase your faith and devote yourself fully towards imitating the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. In your quest to pursue your holy vocation, you were not deterred by the many obstacles that came your way. Your strong faith carried you through all of life’s trials to your place in God’s kingdom.
Obtain for me the same courage and faith that allowed you to give all to God without counting the cost. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide me to the right decisions that will best serve God and my neighbor. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
