Plan to Attend World Feast 2014!
What is World Feast? An Annual Community Event for Families and Friends to celebrate our diversity with ethnic food, cultural music, festive dance, and much more! World Feast is an all-day event featuring the food, devotions, dance, songs, and life of over 20 countries. There will be games, rides, raffles, food, BINGO – something for everyone! More Information Here!
To create an event big enough to invite all of our community neighbors and UNCC students, we need your help! Volunteers are needed to prepare food, lead games, serve meals, set-up and tear-down, move trash, sell tickets, find entertainment, and much more!
We are still seeking many more volunteers! To sign up your family visit our World Feast Page!
After All Weekend Masses before the Feast, we will be pre-selling tickets at a Discounted Price!!! Check out our table in the Courtyard to purchase 25 tickets for just $20 and a Wristband for All-Day-Play for just $10 ($12 on Event Day)!
Did We Mention...?
We are raffling off a 2004 Boxster Porsche Convertible? Get your tickets for just $20 - and QUICK, only 1,000 will be sold!!! To purchase before the event, call the parish office or see our table after all of the Masses! You don't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
It is important for all of us to share the experiences of faith in our lives. We are collecting stories from our Parish Family about how the Lord has worked an 'Ordinary Miracle' for them in their life. These stories shape and grow us as a community and individuals in faith. Find our more information and share your story here or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Lady of Fatima Procession
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to the children on the 13th of the month from May to October in 1917. Each year pilgrims relive this experience with a candlelit procession.
Pope Francis dedicated his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima so let us pray for our Universal Church for Our Lady's help and protection. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
A procession is representative of our life journey as the Church, the Bride of Christ, going to meet her Divine Spouse. We offer these processions for an increased devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the conversion of sinners, and for the souls of the faithful departed.
Join us on Monday, October 13th at 7:30pm for our next procession.
