Special Announcements

  • Do you know someone who would like to know more about our faith? Did you miss your First Eucharist and/ or Confirmation? Have you been thinking about joining the Catholic Church? RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is calling all men, women and children that are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith! We are starting our inquiry sessions! We meet in the Church Hall on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm. Come and learn more!
  • Mass Intentions: It has long been a custom within the Catholic Church to have a Mass offered for someone who is deceased or for a special intention. The priest then makes it his intention during Mass to remember the particular request made. Throughout the year we have many Masses without scheduled intentions. If you would like to have a Mass offered, you may call Nikki or stop by the parish office during regular business hours (8 AM -12 Noon) or drop a note in the collection basket with your stipend. We make our best efforts to accommodate your request. We publish the Mass intentions each week in our bulletin. The usual stipend for a Mass intention is $10.00. Fr. James would like to see this tradition continued.
  • During the month of August the Giving Cabinet served 14 families with 32 individuals. We are grateful for the continued monetary donations to this ministry. The Cabinet will be open on Thursday, Sept. 12th from 9:30-11:30. The volunteers will be Karen Dawson, Leslie Shugars, Roz Howell, Raeanna Zang, and Charlie Zang. Thanks for your help!
  • Fr. James has asked Deacon Jerry to oversee and takeover the training of all Altar Servers. Deacon Jerry would like to meet with all Altar Servers after each Mass next weekend Sept. 7th & 8th in the church. If there’s any child interested in becoming an Altar server, please see Deacon Jerry or attend one of these meetings. All Altar Servers must have made their First Communion.
  • We are in need of more Eucharistic Ministers at each of the Masses. If you are interested in volunteering your time to serve at the Mass of your choice, please contact Nikki at the church office at 615.444.0524 or by email at
  • Religious Education Classes are 9:30 to 10:40 A.M.

Baptisms will be after Masses only on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of each month. Please call Nikki at the church office 615-444-0524 to get registered for this class.
  • Brides & Grooms: Don’t forget to schedule your pre-marital meetings with pastor; also don’t forget, you will also be required to attend an Engaged Couples Retreat. No completion certificate, no ceremony! So don’t delay.
  • Altar Flowers – Parishioners can devote altar flowers as a memorial to remember or honor a loved one, whether living or deceased. The intention will be recognized in the bulletin. The Altar flower memorials will be available for the weekend Masses and will consist of freshly-cut flower arrangements. There is a stipend of $35.00 for the flower arrangement. Contact Nikki at the office to make arrangements for the weekend you would like- call 444-0524 or email with your date.
