This Week: Thirteenth 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.
Vacation Bible School Wrapup
The Barnyard Roundup was amazing this past week. We had almost 100 children participating and over 30 teens and tweens helping out. We all had a great time. Thank you to everyone who helped out, I could not have done it without you. To Angie Mendez, Stephanie Aritchita, Trese Graddon, Tina Irish and Jennifer Duarte, who took charge of the different stations, thank you thank you, and thank you. -Kara
With your support we have successfully reduced the parish debt (which came from renovations to the church and the purchase of the rectory) by over $100,000! This will shorten the time to pay off the loan by many years -
