Deacon Nicholas Ashmore's First Mass & Reception

On Saturday, May 19th Deacon Nicholas Ashmore was ordained a Transitional Deacon by Archbishop Joseph Naumann at Holy Trinity Catholic Church.

On Sunday, May 20th Deacon Ashmore preached his first homily here at Most Pure Heart of Mary. The Mass was followed by a reception in O'Connor Hall to celebrate this momentous occasion. His summer parish assignment will be here at the parish.

God willing, Deacon Aschmore will be ordained in to the priesthood next May of 2019 after completing his final year of seminary.

Master Planning News

MPHM has asked HTK Architects to guide us through a Parish Master Planning Process.

  • We have had Town Hall #1, to introduce the process and begin gathering parishioner comments.
  • Representatives from HTK have met with approximately 15 parish ministries and groups and 3 focus groups were held to garner more information from our parishioners as to perceived needs.
  • Our facilities have all been evaluated as to their condition.
  • Town Hall #2 was held to roll let parishioners know what information has been gathered.
  • We are currently in the phase of prioritizing the facility NEEDS, options, and preparing for a feasibility study for funding.

Keeping checking back for updates!

Novena: Mary, Undoer of Knots

As the parish concentrates on the financial matters of the parish, Fr. Greg would like all parishioners to pray the novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots. As we take these matters to prayer, we firmly believe that we will be guided to the solutions needed to keep Most Pure Heart of Mary financially viable for many generations.
