We worship together as a community of believers.

Our Mission

For over 100 years, the sister parishes of St. Boniface and St. Bonaventure have served as the spiritual home for generations of faithful Catholics.  The mission we are engaged in was started by Jesus and continues through us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

May our acts of charity, education, and sacramental life continue to change hearts in our local community and beyond.

Faith Q & A

By Father Vogel

Question: How come none of the righteous people in the Old Testament have the “saint” title, like Saint Abraham?

Answer:

In general the righteous people of the Old Testament are not given the English title “Saint” in the Roman Catholic Church. Some will receive other titles like “Patriarch” or “Prophet.” This does not mean they are not in heaven. The Creed says that after his death Jesus went to bring salvation to the righteous who had died – he opened up heaven for them and us. While in English the title “Saint” is not often used, we do find it in other languages and rites. A number of Eastern Catholic Churches will refer to them as “saint” in their own languages. Even in our Roman rites, when expressed in Latin, we can find things like “sancti Móysis” which is “Saint Moses,” but will usually be translated “holy Moses.”
