Some important things to remember:

  1. You DO NOT need to have a facebook count to access the facebook live videos.
  2. We are starting our live feed a few minutes prior to 10am with a prelude music to give people a chance to find the live feed.
  3. You made need to refresh your web browser at 10am if you don't see the live video.  (There should be a red "LIVE" box in the upper left hand corner of the video).
  4. You can access the recorded Mass after the live recording is finished.  Say you can't find the video until 10:30am and find Mass is half way through already.  If you wait until 11am when Mass and the video is finished recording, you will have the option to start Mass from the beginning.

PAST SUNDAY SERVICES

Prior services can be viewed on our youtube channel.  Sunday services will be available to watch by Tuesday mornings.  Masses will also be aired on the local Bird Island and Olivia channels at 11am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine Announces Grants Recipients for Projects that Support Catholic Biblical Literacy and Interpretation

WASHINGTON - This spring, the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) awarded grants in the amount of $146,168 for eight projects that support the goals of the CCD to promote Catholic biblical literacy and Catholic biblical interpretation.

The CCD works with the Catholic Biblical Association (CBA) to offer these grants, accepting applications only from the CBA, including the organization itself, its designees, and its full and associate members. In fidelity to Dei Verbum, the dogmatic constitution on divine revelation promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1965, the CBA's purpose is to promote scholarly study in Scripture and related fields by meetings of the association, publications, and support to those engaged in such studies.
