It is time again to call on those who made our previous run/walks so successful...the VOLUNTEERS! Please consider volunteering again for this year's event. We understand the important role volunteers play in ensuring a successful event! Please sign-up after Masses if you can help out again this year. If you are not interested in volunteering this year, consider running or walking the event, or just come out and cheer on those participating! We would love to line the course with friendly faces!

Several Christian faith communities in the Mason area are joining together to offer our children the experience of learning more about Jesus' love for us! This is our fourth year working together. We are holding the event that was formerly located at Mason First United Methodist Church at St. James Catholic Church this summer, There is room for everyone here, and all are welcome. We are united in Jesus and wish to share the stories of His great love for all of us. No church affiliation is necessary to sign up- just a desire to have fun and make new friends!
Diocesan Services Appeal 2018
“Go and Announce the Gospel of the Lord” is the theme of our 2018 Diocesan Services Appeal. It reminds us that each of us is called to discipleship. Supporting the DSA is one way to share our blessings and the Good News with the world.
Next weekend our parish, and all parishes throughout our diocese, will conduct Commitment Weekend for our Diocesan Services Appeal. This is when we will be asking each member of our Parish to consider a generous gift to DSA. Our parish goal of $42,850 can be reached if each one of us shares a portion of the many blessings God has bestowed upon us. Please prayerfully consider how you or your family will respond to this call to carry on Christ’s work in our community.
New this year - make your gift online with your credit card, debit card or checking account!
