Information about the newly expanded Malmark Handbell Set:
Last year it was becoming clear that we did not have enough handbells to accommodate the number of ringers that wished to be a part of the youth bell choir.

Thank you to all who came out on Saturday, August 27th, to congratulate Fr. Joe McCann on celebrating his 50th Anniversary to the Priesthood, and to thank him for his many years of service to our parish.
