From the Pastor

Second Sunday of Advent

12-08-2019Fr. Dan Connealy

Happy Sunday!

This has been quite the weekend for St. Joan of Arc. Our high schoolers have been on retreat in Prescott accompanied by Fr. Daniel. We pray they had a renewing weekend and that the Lord deepened their knowledge and love of Him. As well, our St. Michael Indian School Mission group went up north to deliver the many donations. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed so generously. A special thanks to all those who made the journey to deliver all the donations, this certainly makes a big difference to the people in the St. Michael Mission.

On Monday of this past week the Diocese began celebrations for the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Diocese of Phoenix. There was a Mass at Comerica Theater to kickoff the year long celebration. We give thanks to God for the many blessings He has bestowed on our wonderful diocese. Including the founding of our own parish, which happened ten years after the Diocese of Phoenix was created. We pray for many more fruitful years of evangelization and deepening the love of God in the life of our diocese.
