From the Pastor

My Dear Family,

Happy Easter to you, my dear friends and family in Christ!† This is the day the Lord has made for all of us to enjoy and celebrate no matter what.† Christ has conquered the darkness of death and has brought us His radiant light!† This is the day where all fear is vanquished and all suffering is put aside by the great promise of eternal life in Heaven.† There is no room for any doubt that we are loved beyond all telling by our God.† Together we must encourage one another to go out and share this joy with everyone we meet.† The more people see how we encourage one another and rejoice in our Lordís message of hope, the more people will come to know Him in the Sacraments.† I want to especially welcome all of our new beloved members of the RCIA into our Parish.† You are living examples of faith!†

As your Pastor, it is my great joy to be celebrating our first Easter together with all of you and I want to make sure you know how grateful I am for your prayerful support.† In this joyful season ahead, let us renew our zeal and our faith in Christ and in His Church.† Let us grow in love for one another and build each other up.† Let us forgive past transgressions and ask God for freedom from all sin.†

Alleluia, Alleluia!† He is Risen!† This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!† Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us!
Rev. Brian Patrick Woodrow

Campus Updates

We are happy to share some of the recent updates to our beautiful Campus:

The Parish Hall has been a major focus of our attention. The painting of the Hall has been completed! The new floor has been installed and recent lighting improvements helped to prepare our Parish Hall for many upcoming special events.  The  addition of the four new movable walls gives us great  flexibility in the use of this wonderful meeting space.  

The Church and Rectory roofs have been inspected, and all missing or cracked slate shingles were replaced. 

Parish Office floors have been refinished, and the office decorating will soon be completed. The painting of the reception and hallway areas has been completed.  Last summer, the Office was relocated to the house behind the Church and landscaping was completed.

The Parking Lot paving has been completed, and additional lighting needs are being addressed..

The entire Campus benefitted greatly from the hard work of all of our fathers, sons and Notre Dame High School volunteers who participated in the Columbus Day Clean-Up and by the Maidens of the Miraculous Medal during Holy Week 2014.   Thank you to all.
