COVID-19 Vaccines

Many people are conflicted about receiving one of the Covid-19 vaccines. I know Catholics and non-Catholics, political liberals and conservatives, medical and pharmaceutical professionals, etc. who refuse to take the vaccine and… others of the same background who insist everyone should receive it. While some are concerned about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines—which is not the Church’s competency; saving souls is—others are concerned that the vaccines were produced or tested using cell-lines derived from aborted babies, still others are concerned about how vaccines may affect fertility, etc.

For All Generations Campaign

We have been entrusted with a great treasure: St. Mary of the Angels church.

Through your prayer and financial help we rebuilt the Dome in 2010, restored the South Tower in 2012, eliminated our debt in 2013, and have now raised over $1 million in donations and pledges ear-marked for restoration, but our needs are greater.

Click here to learn our plans to restore the church's exterior, replace our heating and sound systems, and more.
