We will have the opportunity to pray before 4 Eucharistic miracles, we will celebrate Mass each day, we will visit tombs of many saints – St. Cristina, St. Catherine, St. Francis, St. Claire, St. Rita, St. Padre Pio, the Archangel Michael, St. Janarius, St. Benedict, St. Peter, St. Paul, St. Ignatius, and countless others. There will even be a visit to the North American College where Fr. Hock spent 5 years of his life. The cost of the pilgrimage is $3,395 – which is quite steep, but it is also all inclusive. There are brochures in the main gathering area and at the West entrance of the church. Feel free to contact Fr. Hock or Fr. Vince if you have questions.

Jim: We have reached our goal of $800,000 pledged for our Capital Campaign! We greatly thank you for your great support. I continue to be impressed by your generosity and willingness to play an active role in your parish. Even though we have reached our goal we are not finished. We know that building projects like this often take more money than planned. We would also like to eventually build up our parish savings. We currently have $77,000 in savings. I think a parish this size should have twice that amount. Please keep the pledges coming and please continue to pay on your pledges! May God bless our efforts.

This year’s conference will feature former All Pro NFL wide receiver, Danny Abramowicz, FOCUS Missionary Founder and President, Curtis Martin, Director of Formation for the Western Province Dominicans, Fr. Michael Fones, O. P. and radio personality, Dr. Ray Guarendi (Sponsored by Spirit Catholic Radio, KVSS).
