Charity and safety are essential to all relationships in the Church's ministry. The Diocese maintains a Code of Ethics to guide those relationships, so that they inspire people and never undermine their faith.
The Diocese has recently updated this Code. We urge all Catholics to review it, so that you are aware of the standards set for all clergy, Church employees, and volunteers. Yes, it is lengthy, but it must be in order to cover all aspects of relationships in ministry.
Click this link to open a downloadable copy of the Code.
Because all clergy, staff, and volunteers are bound by the Code, they are required to acknowledge their acceptance and commitment. The Code provides an Acknowledgement Form for that purpose. Click here for a downloadable version of the form. This form must be signed even by those who have signed a similar form in the past
Thank you for your cooperation.
Tuesday, November 1, is a holy day of obligation. Mass will be celebrated at
|St. Gregory||8:00 AM|
|Sacred Heart||8:15 AM|
|Holy Martyrs||5:30 PM|
|St. Jude||6:30 PM|
This great feast celebrates the gathering of saints, that is, all who were with God in heaven, described in the Book of Revelations:
I had a vision of a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, race, people, and tongue. They stood before the throne of God and before the Lamb, wearing white robes and holding palm branches...Our faith brings us hope to be part of that great multitude. We renew our hope at Mass on this Feast.
We are the Parish of the Holy Eucharist, a Catholic Community seeking deeper communion with God, each other, and our neighbors by celebrating the Sacraments, sharing God's Word, and serving all in need.

"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."
- Pope Francis, 9/16/13
The Church affirms that every Catholic is called to prayerful, active, and responsible participation in the political process. We urge all Catholics who are eligible, to register and vote.
The Catholic Bishops of the United States are pleased to offer Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, our teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics. This statement represents our guidance for Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy. We urge everyone to use this statement to help form their consciences; to teach those entrusted to their care; to contribute to civil and respectful public dialogue; and to shape political choices in the coming election in light of Catholic teaching.
