Reflections on “Aid in Dying” 
A message from Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M. 

As the Bishop of a Diocese, I am frequently asked to issue “statements” on a variety of subjects and I often do.  I try to be very careful in what I write and preach, avoiding topics of a political nature, keeping in mind my responsibility to use opportunities that I have to address and teach the faithful on matters of faith and morals.  I prefer to label my writings as “reflections” or “messages,” more homiletic in nature and content, designed to encourage believers to follow the Gospels of Jesus Christ and to apply the teachings of the Church to issues or events of contemporary relevance to Catholics in our Diocese. 


Registration packets for all new families are available for pick up in the back of the Church. When your packet is completed, call the PREP Office to set up an appointment. We look forward to meeting you and having join our family!
