Any crafters out there?

Father Poli is asking for any parishioners who would like to sew cloth masks to donate for parishioners who may need one. It doesn't matter the style or design as long as it properly covers the mouth and nose.

You may drop off masks directly to Father Poli at the office or at church.

Thank you!

Cathoilic Campaign for Human Development

help wanted
franciscan university

Bishop Silva is endorsing and implementing a new Faith Formation program for everyone in the diocese. From clergy and staff to catechists and parishioners, he is inviting as many people as possible to be formed and catechized in the doctrines and truths of our Catholic Faith. Best part, IT IS ALL FREE (for at least the first year and hopefully for the next two years).

What is this program?

It is an online virtual presentation of highly renowned professionals from Franciscan University in the non-degree program where individuals or small Christian Communities can join at their own paces and take their own "tracks" of topics. Gathering the people at the parish, providing quality trained Catechesis is not currently available and possible, but with The Franciscan University Catechetical Institute, the Church can. Individuals have free entry once their parish or school has registered in our system. Once their institution has subscribed, they can then go to Once there, scroll down to the following section with a blue button:

By clicking on this button, they can then fill in registration information to create a new account. After completing the registration, they are then taken to a page that asks for the name of their diocese. Once they choose the name of their diocese, the name of their parish or school will appear in the second drop-down box (provided that their parish or schoolhas registered already). Once they have selected their parish or school, they have access to all the workshops for free!


BEWARE-COVID-19 Scam Emails

This past weekend, a parishioner received an email claiming to be from Bishop Larry Silva requesting gift cards to help a priest with COVID-19. This is a scam email. DO NOT reply to the email, ignore and delete it.

Bishop Silva has reconfirmed that he will never send an email asking an individual for money, gift cards or any other gift. Hallmark signs of phishing and scam emails often include bad grammar, bad spelling, threats to do damage, and a short deadline to pay money with a link.

Below are some tips if you receive a phishing or scam email:

  • Don’t reply back to the sender. Doing so alerts the sender to the fact that this is a live email account.
  • Instead, call the alleged sender directly on their official phone line and ask if they sent the email.
  • Don’t click on any links in the email. Instead hover over a link to see the full web address and whether it might be coming from a suspicious site that could install malware on your computer or try and get your sensitive information like log-ins, personal data or financial details.
  • If you’d like to alert the diocese to the fact that an email pretending to be someone related to the church is circulating, you can forward it to:
