Speaking on:
 A Time for Diet and Exorcism

During Lent, we like to give things up, or make a personal change to better ourselves, but have we thought about healing from our sinfulness? Add this evening with the very dynamic Father Simon to your plan for spiritual growth this Lent. General Q&A with
Fr. "Know-It-All" will occur after the presentation.

Be Kind and Merciful
The annual appeal is vitally important to not only the diocese, but also to our parish as well. The CMAA supports 30 ministries that benefit every parish and allow us all to Be Kind and Merciful to the most vulnerable in our community.  Our parish goal for 2020 is $87,200 and 70 percent of any amount we raise over our goal will be returned to us. This is a great opportunity for our parish! To learn more visit

January Book Feature 
Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the "Hail Mary" pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years. 
But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother? That's the question explored in the exciting new book, Meet Your Mother. This easy-read pocket book on Mary covers all the major teachings about the Mother of Jesus, but is particularly written for the person who has little or no background knowledge about her. Authored by Dr. Mark Miravalle, renowned Marian expert and professor who has taught and written about Mary for over 25 years, this is perfect to introduce someone to the life and truth about Jesus' Mother, but also to renew a person's existing knowledge and love for the woman who Jesus gave personally to every human being with his dying words, "This is your mother."

Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards.  Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive.
