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

November 30: St. Andrew / San Andrés

The Church celebrates today the feastday of the Apostle St. Andrew. He, along with his brother St. Peter, were called by Jesus along with another set of brothers, Sts. James and John (Matthew 4, 18-22). There is a great simplicity about the passage in Matthew 4. Jesus saw the brothers making a cast with their […]

November 29: Patiently Doing What Is Right

St. Paul wrote to the Church which was gathering in Rome to say, “patiently do what is right.” (Romans 2, 7) Later in the same letter, he says that “affliction produces patience, and patience produces character, and character produces hope.” (5, 3).

November 27: The Season of Giving / El Tiempo para Dar

The Gospel we heard over the weekend (Matthew 25, 31-46) reminded us that Christ the King is coming in glory to judge us, based on how we have shared our love and blessings with others through genuine acts of charity in our lives. And yet, Jesus is present to us here and now, not only […]

November 26: The Day of the Lord

During the past few weeks, as we have drawn closer and closer to the end of the Church year, we have been exhorted to be prepared, to be alert, and to use our gifts well. Today, helped by Matthew 25, 31-46, we get the bottom line: how are we cooperating with God’s abundant grace so […]
