Letter to the Faithful - April 29, 2018

Letter from Archbishop Mancini

Please click here (or on the image of the letter on the left) to read an important letter from the archbishop that is being read at every parish throughout our entire diocese on the 5th Sunday of Easter.

As most are aware, our parish went through an amalgamation several years ago when St. Pius X, St. Lawrence and Our Lady of Perpetual Help came together to form Saint Benedict Parish in 2007 - culminating in the opening of the new church building in 2010.

Nevertheless, it is important for us to be aware of the significant change that is taking place throughout our diocese in the near future. At this point, it is unclear if/how Saint Benedict will be impacted by the “network of new parishes” that is being proposed. Fr. Simon will keep the parish in the loop as new information becomes available. 

Be sure to submit feedback to Archbishop Mancini and the Archdiocese (see below for link) by May 20th.
