Lord our God, on this Memorial Day we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom.
May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

ASCENSION HOLYDAY - THURSDAY, MAY 30
Feast of the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven
8:00 AM & 5:30 PM at Sacred Heart & 7:00 PM at St. Joseph
When Jesus ascended into heaven, He gave a small group of disciples the commission to carry on His message. 2000 years later, that message has spread to the ends of the earth.
How did it happen? It happened because people like you believed in Jesus and shared His message with others.
We are the hands and feet and voice of Jesus today. Our commission from Jesus is to keep the faith and to spread the faith.
