Patrick.  The congregation is small, but hearty, and is very proud of it's
parish and rich history.This web site was developed so that visitors and

July : Month of the Most Precious Blood
The month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood. The feast of the
Precious Blood of our Lord was instituted in 1849 by Pius IX, but the
devotion is as old as Christianity. The early Fathers say that the Church
was born from the pierced side of Christ, and that the sacraments were
brought forth through His Blood.

"The Precious Blood which we worship is the Blood which the Savior
shed for us on Calvary and reassumed at His glorious Resurrection; it is
the Blood which courses through the veins of His risen, glorified, living
body at the right hand of God the Father in heaven; it is the Blood made
present on our altars by the words of Consecration; it is the Blood which
merited sanctifying grace for us and through it washes and beautifies our
soul and inaugurates the beginning of eternal life in it."
