Pray With Us

Please join Bishop Anthony B. Taylor in praying for these special intentions.
1. For Christians and other innocent victims of violence in the Middle East.
2. That the black mass scheduled for Oklahoma City on Sept. 21 does not take place.
3. For refugees at our southern border and a solution to the problems in their countries that have created this humanitarian disaster.
Bishop Taylor is also asking parishioners to join Catholics nationwide in giving to a special collection to help provide humanitarian relief for Christians in the Middle East on Sept. 13-14. Share these special intentions in English or Spanish.

On Aug. 15, 1956, the original church was built and staffed by Benedictine priests from Subiaco Abbey. A new church was dedicated by Bishop Anthony B. Taylor on April 4, 2014.
