PARISH LENTEN MISSION RESCHEDULED. The blizzard that hit us this past week also forced a reschedule of our Parish Lenten Mission. Please come and be with us THIS Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights (March 20, 21, 22) at 6 p.m. for our Mission retreat with Franciscan Fr. Phil Pacheco, OFM. Fr. Phil was gracious enough to rework his schedule to be with us this week, so please take the time to come out and be inspired by his words. (And pray for clear weather!!)

  1. ST. PATRICK'S THANK-YOUS! For those of you who were with us last Saturday night at Bay Pointe Country Club you know what a wonderful parish celebration we had. The food was wonderful, the entertainment was excellent, and most importantly, it was a joyous time to be together and celebrate as a parish family. I want to extend my personal thanks to those who worked so hard to organize the dinner: Anna Marini, Jack Howarth, Kathy Blais, Mary Ann Bostrom, Vinnie and Francine Armstrong, AnnMarie SanFillipo, Linda Mc Guire, Judy Barclay, and John Andrade especially for his hard work in getting us so many great items for the auction and raffle. Your hard work made this such a wonderful night. Thank you!
  2. FR. TOM'S IRISH SODA BREAD. Some of you asked for the recipe for my Irish bread. Here it is:


  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 Tbsp room temperature butter
  • 1 cup craisins (or raisins)
  • 2 Tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk (cream or whole milk)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, craisins and caraway seeds in large mixing bowl.
  3. Crumble the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse meal.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add beaten egg and buttermilk and mix with a wooden spoon until dough is too stiff to stir.
  5. Dust hands with a little flour, then gently knead dough in the bowl just long enough to form a rough ball. Don't over knead. A rough dough is good. If the dough is too sticky to work with, add in a little more flour. The dough will be a little sticky, and shaggy.
  6. Transfer dough to a lightly greased 9 inch pie dish.
  7. Score top of dough about an inch and a half deep in an "X" shape. (Heat get into the center of the dough while it cooks. You don't want an uncooked center.)
  8. Sprinkle top with a dash of sugar and a dash of caraway seeds.
  9. Bake until bread is golden and bottom sounds hollow when tapped, about 35-45 minutes. (You can also test by inserting a toothpick into the thickest section. If it comes out clean, you are done.)
  10. Remove pan from oven, place on cooling rack. Let bread sit in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove from pan to a rack to cool briefly.


Peace, love,
and prayers,

Fr. Tom

Lent, a season of
experiencing God’s Mercy
March 13, 14, 15 at 6:00 p.m.
Rescheduled to March 20, 21, 22 at 6:00 p.m.
on account of the storm

Throughout the 40 days of the holy season of Lent, we are offered an opportunity to deepen our relationship with God but especially to experience God's mercy. During this Lenten mission, come and learn that God's mercy has worked through the brokenness of humanity from the beginning of time and that we can experience that same mercy in our lives and that we can be made whole. RECONCILIATION SERVICE on Wednesday night. Presented by Franciscan Fr. Phil Pacheco, ofm. Click HERE for more info.
