Lent begins on March 1, 2017 with the Ash Wednesday Mass. Mass will be at 8AM and 6PM in English.
During Lent, we are remembering those in the world who do not have enough to eat. We ask families to place 2 pounds of food in a basket each day in Lent. Then bring the basket to church each Sunday. After Easter, we will ship the collection to our sister mission in South America.
La Cuaresma comienza el 1 de marzo de 2017 con la Misa del Miércoles de Ceniza. La misa será a las 7 pm en Español.
Durante la Cuaresma, estamos recordando a aquellos en el mundo que no tienen suficiente para comer. Pedimos a las familias que pongan 2 libras de comida en una canasta cada día en Cuaresma. Luego traiga la canasta a la iglesia cada domingo. Después de Pascua, enviaremos la colección a nuestra misión hermana en América del Sur.
We'll be serving our last meal from our soup kitchen in the school building on July 25, 2014. A huge thanks to Steve Potorti and his staff for all their time and energy spent serving our neighbors in need; and to our parishioners and friends who volunteered or donated supplies.
** This is a temporary closure as we look to relocate to the gymnasium building. More information to follow *

In the summer of 2015, the Our Lady of Pompei school building was sold. It was a bitter-sweet day for many. The sale of the building removed the expenses of maintaining the building, and the funds from the sale will provide operation expenses for the next few years. However, we have begun a rebuilding phase - needing to renovate and repair parts of the church property to help carry out our mission and stewardship now that we no longer have space in the school building.
Our rebuilding campaign stated in February 2016 with renovations to the rectory dinning room and kitchen, rectory offices. We are grateful for the volunteers who have donated their time and and labor. We need to raise money for supplies. During Lent 2016, we surpassed our goal of $10,000 to pay for supplies for renovations of the rectory and roof repairs.
Our current project is to complete renovations above the church choir loft for Sunday School, music and multipurpose rooms.
On July 19, 2014, Fr. Lou celebrated his 50th anniversary of ordination and 50 years of continuous ministry at Our Lady of Pompei.
Thank you, Fr, Lou for your ministry, service, and dedication!
