Why the name?

"Holy Conversation" does sound like an exceptionally pious name, even for a parish blog. And we can't guarantee that everything here will meet the high standard the name implies. But the phrase comes from the story of our patron saint, and we think it fits. Here's why.

St. Scholastica was a sixth-century abbess who, according to the Dialogues of Pope Gregory I, used to meet once a year with her brother, St. Benedict. On the last occasion they were together, they spent their time "satisfying each other's hunger for holy conversation about the spiritual life."

We hope that this blog can become a place where the members of our parish can find a taste of the companionship and conversation that Scholastica and Benedict enjoyed so much. Welcome!

Parish Connection Upload Update

We began uploading contact information for our parishioners yesterday, Sept. 17, as planned.  As so often happens with things technological, though, (especially when it involves people who don't have deep training or experience using the technology) we ran into some bumps in the digital road. We are proceeding, but doing the upload gradually. 

So if you have not received an email message with login information, please be patient.  We will continue uploading contacts on Thursday, Sept. 19.  We hope to have them done by the weekend.
