Updates

Mask use in our parish church is optional but recommended. Masks are recommended in order to protect the more vulnerable in our community, like children and those with compromised immunities. If you are sick in any way or even feeling a little “under the weather,” please stay home! Our concern is for your good health and the good health of those in the pews around you. Thank you.

What's Happening

June 13: St. Anthony of Padua / San Antonio de Padua

St. Anthony began his Religious life with the Augustinian Order, but eventually (in 1221) became a Franciscan Friar. Through a series of unrelated events, he ended up near the village of Assisi, where St. Francis (still living at the time) was holding a major meeting for the members of his Order. Despite poor health, St. […]

June 12: Blasphemy / Blasfemia

Did you have this thought last Sunday at Mass: “there’s an unforgivable sin?”  Mark 3, 20-35: “Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin.” What’s that all about?

June 9: The Day of the Lord

The current cycle of readings for the Catholic calendar offers us, almost exclusively, Gospel passages (Sunday after Sunday) from St. Mark’s Gospel. One of the characteristics of St. Mark’s Gospel is this: he challenges us to pay as much attention to where Jesus is, what He is doing, and with whom He is doing it […]

9 de junio: El Día del Señor

Nosotros creemos y proclamamos que “quien resucitó al Señor Jesús también, con Jesús, nos resucitará” y nos colocará a su lado. Por esto, damos gracias y gloria a Dios. Estamos invitados a aprender a apreciar mucho más el hecho gozoso de ser un pueblo a quien Dios bondadosamente perdonó a costa de la vida de […]
