From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

On the End of Life: In death, God calls man to himself. Therefore the Christian can experience a desire for death like St. Paul’s: “My desire is to depart and be with Christ.” He can transform his own death into an act of obedience and love towards the Father, after the example of Christ...

- CCC 1011


Ignite Your Torch Youth Conference

IGNITE YOUR TORCH is a high school Catholic youth conference where on fire religious seek to ignite the faith of teens through engaging talks, small group discussion, workshops as well as personal interaction at recreation, meals and just hanging out. It is an opportunity to make new friendships in Christ, to receive the sacraments, to meet and talk to young priests and religious, and to worship, pray, learn, and recreate together. Ignite Your Torch is Eucharistic-centered, devoted to Our Blessed Mother, catechetical in nature, and teaches youth practical ways to build up the culture of life.

Our youth group will return to the conference this year. For information on joining them, click here.

This Week: 16th Week in Ordinary Time

We are the Roman Catholic Faith Community of St. Philomena, called to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our celebrating and praying together, through our support of the faith development of each member and through our compassionate service and care for one another and the world. We do this because of our commitment to our faith, our hope in the reign of God and our love of God and neighbor.

Affordable Care Act Alert

Need healthcare for you or your family? Consider a Christian healthcare coop. These plans are technically not insurance, but for many people they are cheaper and better, and they do not require us to subsidize abortion, sterilizations, etc. They do fulfill the federal requirement to purchase insurance under the Affordable Care Act:
