Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you." Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe." -Jn 20-26b-27

Holy Land Pilgrimage to Mark 25th Anniversary

Fr. Dave will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Priesthood Ordination in June of 2015. To mark this event in his life, Father will serve as the spiritual Director on a pilgramage to the holy Land (Israel) in October of 2015. We will visit sites that were important in the life of Jesus, His family, and His Apostles. Daily Mass will be celebrated in Nazareth, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, on Mount Tabor (site of the Transfiguration), Bethlehem, Bethany, and at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. We will also walk the Stations of the Cross in the old city of Jerusalem, have a Holy Hour that includes Eucharistic Adoration in the Garden of Gethsemane, and couples will have an opportunity to renew their Marriage vows in Cana. This is truly a jorney in faith. A person who travels to the Holy Land and walks, prays, and worships where Jesus did will never be the same. Seats on the pilgrimage are limited, so that we can travel in a smaller group. If you would like more information, there are brochures near the entrances of the church and at the Parish Office.
