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

February 29: Leap Day

The elusive February 29th rolls around again this year, as it does in all years that are divisible by four — unless, oddly, they are years that are divisible by 100 but not by 400! This quirky adjustment to the calendar has its origins in an astronomical and mathematical reality. While ordinary years operate on […]

February 29: Looking Out for One Another / Cuidando el Uno por el Otro

As has been true in every age, there are people today who want some special “signs” from God in order to believe. This Lenten season has been reminding us that we have the Good News of the New Testament and the living presence of Jesus among us. We do not need any more. We have […]

February 28: He Came to Serve / Él Vino para Servir

February 26-27: Mercy / La Misericordia

Such an exercise would bear fruit like this gem: in St. Matthew’s account of the Beatitudes, Jesus says, “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect;” meanwhile, St. Luke recalls these words from Jesus, “Be merciful, as your Father is […]

February 25: The Day of the Lord

Since the beginning of the new year, we have been hearing at our Sunday Masses from the first chapter of St. Mark’s Gospel. We have heard how Jesus drove out a demon, how He healed a leper, how He healed St. Peter’s mother-in-law, how He taught in a new way “with authority,” and how He […]

25 de febrero: El Día del Señor

Cada vez tenemos menos tiempo para escuchar. No sabemos acercamos con calma y sin prejuicios al corazón del otro. No acertamos a escuchar el mensaje que todo ser humano nos puede comunicar. Encerrados en nuestros propios problemas, preocupados por el celular, y como esclavos en frente de la computadora, pasamos junto a las personas, sin […]
