Resisting Happiness

Thank you for the many positive comments over the past 37 weeks of reflections. They have been a source of strength for me to break the cycle of resistance in my own life. Many have asked that the past reflections for the book Resisting be accessible online. Hopefully by the time you read this article, they will be posted on our website. If you do not have web access, call the parish office and we will mail you a copy.

Why go on a Spiritual Retreat?

You could be as wealthy as a king — yet miserable — if you have no friends. Or you could be as poor as dirt — yet happy — because you’re surrounded by loved ones.

A recent study of human happiness by the distinguished British economist Richard Layard concludes that the most significant factor for personal happiness is relationships with other people. And what personal relationship could be more important than the relationship with God?

ARE YOU EXPECTING A BUNDLE OF JOY? Congratulations! It’s time to call the church office for Baptism!

If you are planning to have your baby baptized, please call the parish office at 733-4950 during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy to get enrolled in the Baptism preparation process. 

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1213) Through Baptism, we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God. We thus become members of the Body of Christ, and are incorporated into the Church, sharing in her mission.
