The Hawthorn Catholic Parish strives to be a Christian Community focused on Jesus, helping all celebrate God’s presence and expressing our faith through outreach, service and justice.

We express our vision through prayerful liturgies, welcoming hospitality, ministering to young families, the youth, the elderly and the homeless and refugees in our area. Our parish groups are centered on those needs of our community.

Mass and Prayer

Be at Peace

Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
rather look to them with full hope as they arise.
God, whose very own you are,
will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you in his arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and everyday.
He will either shield you from suffering,
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace,
and put aside all anxious thoughts and imagination.

(Prayer of St. Francis de Sales)
