Today marks 44 years that Fr. Tom Helfrich has been ordained an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales. We are incredibly lucky to have a leader who is compassionate and wise, we thank you for all you do for our parish and community as a whole.
Thanks again for your generous support of DSA. We’re halfway there at $37,720, wow! Your willingness to help those in need is admirable and we thank you for that.

The people of our diocese and those we serve beyond our parishes are counting on our help!
