Updates

October 2, 2022 Update: Mask use in our parish church is now 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.

31 de enero: Creando una Comunidad

Hoy, celebramos la fiesta de San Juan Bosco, fundador de “la Familia Salesiana” y “Padre y Maestro de la Juventud.” Según el Papa Francisco: “Pienso en Don Bosco, que no se fue a buscar a los jóvenes a ninguna parte lejana o especial, sino que aprendió a ver todo lo que pasaba en la ciudad […]

January 31: A Great Cloud of Witnesses

A central paradox of the Paschal Mystery (the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus) is this: in order to reach the unending joy and happiness which was offered to Him by His heavenly Father, Jesus underwent the appalling pain of the Cross and the despised terrible shame of such a death, even to the point […]
