Good Read Recommendation

My Dear Parishioners,

I want to tell you about one of the best books for developing your spiritual relationship with God that I have ever seen.

“How to Read Your Way to Heaven” by Vicki Burbach outlines a spiritual reading program as she says for “the worst of sinners, the greatest of saints, and everyone in between”.

If you have thought about what to read to grow spiritually and ‘how do I grow spiritually?’ this is the book for you.

If you are hard pressed to find time in a busy life for spiritual reading, this is the book for you.

Vicki is a wife and busy mother of six  children. Her spiritual reading program is set up for 5 days a week 15 or 30 minutes a day.  There are reading lists for 1 to 5 years and even a list for a lifetime.

We have 3 copies in the Brescilli lending library which you may check out and I encourage you to take a look and buy your own copy.

I am already using this absolutely wonderful book myself.

Christ’s Peace,

Fr. David




Lenten Pasta Dinner

Please join our 8th graders for a night of fellowship with a Lenten Pasta Dinner.

Pasta, salad, drinks & dessert on Friday, March 10, 2017 at 5pm until 6:30pm in the school cafeteria.

$4 adult – $2 child ($10 maximum for a family)

Stations of the Cross to begin at 7pm in the church.


Jesus faced real temptations in the desert and he had to make some hard choices. During these weeks of Lent, look at the choices that are facing you. Pray, weigh the actions and ask, “What will be life-giving to me and my family?” Be open to a new direction from the Lord for “not by bread alone shall you live but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.”
