Deacons: the men behind the men of the cloth. They are such a great blessing to many of our parishes. They do so much both at Mass and behind the scenes. However, have you ever wondered where deacons come from? Would you believe our first saint and martyr was a deacon? Join us at Gresso's on May 19th at 7:30 p.m. as we learn about the history of the deaconate and the formation process for deacons in our diocese today in "The Other Guy Up There: The Role of the Deacon." Our speaker is Jeffery Fortkamp who has completed his formation as a Deacon and he will be joined by special guests at various stages of their vocation. Gresso's is located at 961 South High Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and food and drink are available for purchase before the talk. For more information, go to"



We appreciate all the work of our School Advisory Board.  Janet Dawson and Tina Nierman go off the board this year.  Karen Durano and Brigid Mattox are our new members.  They will join Jennifer Hadden, Erin Howell, Nichole Robinson and Jennifer Smallwood.  If you have ideas or questions to send to them, simply mail them to our parish office, and we will forward the communication.



The Lexington Catholic High School Chamber Choir will join our 11:30 choir on May 31st.  Plan to stay after Mass for a few minutes for some extra music from our choir and guests.

The Catholic Communication Campaign has provided funding to produce radio and TV Public Service Announcements on the theme “What Have You Done for Your Marriage Today?” In conjunction with the PSAs, an exciting new website has been launched: Visit this inviting website for resources to “prepare for” and “care for” your marriage. You’ll find Daily Marriage Tips, sources of encouragement, information on what makes marriage work, as well as ways to nurture and strengthen your marriage.

Are you interested in learning about the Catholic faith? Are you looking into joining the Church?  Are you a Catholic who has been away for a while?  Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you.  It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6 p.m. on the back patio of Father’s house (to the right of the Church when facing it from 3rd street).  You can bring any support that you need. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7 p.m.  Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter.  We look forward to seeing you in August!
