From the Desk of Fr. Jean Baptiste
We are about to embark on our much needed project of patching, sealing and striping the parking lots throughout our Parish Life Center, Church and School Campus.
This work is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 11, 2018 concluding Friday, June 15, 2018 weather permitting.
This capital project, as well as future endeavors would not be possible without your generous support.
Again, Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our Parish and School community.
The Rev. John Baptiste
