Mass of Remembrance

The Mass will be a way for family and friends to remember and celebrate the lives of these victims and to stand together surrounded in ...

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
June 27 - Leadership is tough everywhere. People expect a great deal and complain vociferously when it’s not delivered. The Church is no exception. A reporter at the Vatican reflected that being the successor to Peter must be the most arduous job anywhere. All 1.3 billion Catholics have opinions and all are based in their country's faith. Americans want everything immediately and Africans are willing to wait. Pray for Pope Francis on Wednesday the 29th that the Holy Spirit guides and comforts him as we journey together.

Pierogi Night!

Posted on June 28, 2021 in: St Boniface Activities

Pierogi Night!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Our first pierogi making night was a huge success.  The turnout was WONDERFUL, and fun was had by all. We are looking ahead to our next night, which is scheduled for Monday, June 28th at 6pm in the school gym. Again, no experience is necessary!  Please do not assume that we will have plenty of help as we have several people that have prior commitments that were present during the first night. Also, we have decided to cook ten more lbs. of potatoes so we can fill even more. One thing that we have learned over the years is that everyone love...

Fr. Bill's Pastors Corner
June 13th - Now is the time to stop streaming and watching tv. Get outside, exercise, catchup with people and let the sun bake memories of covid out of your head. Plant herbs and eat them. Play with a dog and laugh with a child.  This is a season to heal the mind and feed the soul.  "I came that you might have life and have it to the fullest". John 10:10

Father's Day Prayer

Posted on June 18, 2021 in: General News

Father's Day Prayer
Praise Those Fathers Let us praise those fathers who have striven to balance the demands of work, marriage, and children with an honest awareness of both joy and sacrifice. Let us praise those fathers who, lacking a good model for a father, have worked to become a worthy and virtuous father. Let us praise those fathers who, by their own account, were not always there for their children, but who continue to offer those children, now grown, their love and support. As well, let us pray for those fathers who have been wounded by words and actions of their children. ...

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
June 6 - The center of Catholic and Orthodox prayer life is the Eucharist. Jesus wanted to guarantee that we would never be left to our own devices. Consequently, He allowed us to re-live the Last Supper for 2,000 years with Him in attendance. His Body and Blood transcend symbols of his presence. We proudly proclaim that Christ is alive in the bread and wine. John's Gospel Ch. 6 written maybe 20 years after Matthew, Mark & Luke stresses to early Christians that Christ is truly there on the altar. So, we genuflect and receive Him into our hands with reverence.
