From the Pastor

America's First Saint

07-05-2020Dcn. Peter Auriemma, MD

Growing up in an Italian-American home on the south side of Chicago, I was blessed with a great deal of love from my family, a constant supply of the most delicious food in the world, and…saints! The saints, our heavenly intercessors, were a big part of our lives. And my earliest memories of any saint are of a broad-faced nun with large, luminous eyes, a warm, welcoming smile and a big bow beneath her chin.

SVdP Pantry Needs

If you remember, please purchase one jar of jelly when you go shopping next week. Our supplies of jelly was low in the pantry and we had to purchase jelly from the grocery store. This was not easy since supplies are low in the grocery store because of the pandemic.

Safe Environment Renewal Training

Renewals for the 2020/2021 year have been rescheduled from Jul 1 to Aug 1 due to the Pandemic. Any renewals completed prior to Aug 1 will need to be redone after Aug 1.
