Dear Friends,

This week, we continue to look at how we can grow in our relationship with God. The Simple Plan of Life here explores five essential pillars of Christian Discipleship: Sunday Mass, Monthly Confession, Daily Prayer, Serving, and Giving.

Last Sunday, my homily was all about prayer, specifically the Our Father. In case you missed it, it is on the website at, just click on CONNECT, then BLOG & BULLETIN.

Although the Church has taught through the centuries that we need to pray 30 minutes daily, start with 15 or so if you find 30 too much of a challenge. Using some of the tips from the homily, I imagine you’ll want to spend at least 15 minutes in prayer a day!

To get a jumpstart on what each of those five steps entails, go to the website and click on the heading for GROW.

Part #3 of our GROW series will be presented next week. In the meantime, remember that you are not alone. Here at the parish we are well equipped to help you journey with Jesus - to help you apprentice under him. Come talk to me about how we walk this way together.

Christ’s peace,
Father Daniel
