Cemetery Flowers & Decorations

Cemetery Flowers & Decorations Please pick up all flowers and ground decorations that are not in containers (above ground level) at the parish Cemeteries. All remaining flowers and Decorations will be disposed of so that mowing can be completed. Thank you in advance for helping keep all of our cemeteries neat a tidy.

Register NOW for Confirmation Classes this Fall

Will you have a 7th grade or older student that will need to be signed up for the Confirmation classes that begin this fall? We ask that you contact the office so that we can add you to the information list and so that you can be prepared as classes begin at the end of summer. If you have any other questions, please contact the office. Thank you!

Anointing of the Sick

If you know you are being admitted to a hospital, please inform Fr. Quentin prior to hospitalization and ask for the sacrament of anointing of the sick. This is a sacramental opportunity for all Catholic patients no matter the age, not to be confused with Last Rites which are for those in danger of death. So, please contact Father, if you know you will be hospitalized in the near future, and request to receive this sacrament before hospitalization.

If you are admitted to the hospital in an emergency, you can ask for Father to come to the hospital, or in a larger area / hospital, ask for the Hospital Priest.

Also, if you know someone that is ill and home-bound but would still like to be anointed, this opportunity is also available. Please contact the office directly and we will schedule an appointment with Father Quentin.

May God bless you all! 

Mass Intentions Available

Mass Intentions are available at St. Joseph for both Wednesday as well as weekend Masses beginning in August. 

Masses for the other parishes are scheduled as far out as November. 

Please contact the office if you would like a Mass intention added.  Thank you

Home-bound Visits

Please notify the main office if you know of anyone that needs/or would like to be added to the nursing home or home-bound lists for any of our 4 parishes. Father has a schedule to visit with parishioners and we don’t want to leave anyone off the list that may need/want the Sacramental graces he can provide. Anyone wishing to become a designated Home-bound Minister that can deliver communion, please contact the office or notify Father Quentin directly. Thank you.
