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

April 17: Dedicated and Committed Discipleship

Easter celebrates the faithfulness of God to His Son Jesus, and the faithfulness of Jesus to all of us. True to His promises from of old, the Father never abandoned His Son, raising Him from the tomb and giving us life and salvation through Him. Jesus’ willingness to suffer and die (and be raised!) is […]

April 15-16: The Bread of Life / El Pan de Vida

We have about 40 or so young people who are making their final preparations for their First Communion this spring. One of the things they are learning is that there is a great difference between ordinary bread (with a short shelf-life and that grows stale) and the Eucharistic food … that leads to eternal life.

14 de abril: El Día del Señor

Hoy, como en el tiempo de los Apóstoles, las condiciones no son las mejores para descubrir a Dios. Parece, como en la barca en el lago, que hay muchas olas y parece que nos hundimos. La obscuridad del mundo (las guerras, la violencia, la injusticia…) nos lleva a pensar que hay mucho mal y sufrimiento […]

April 14: The Day of the Lord

This new religion (actually a fulfillment of the old) of which they were a part reached out to all humankind. To tell that story, to ground […]

April 12-13: Preparing to Celebrate Sunday’s Mass

As we prepare for Mass this weekend, let us remember that are invited to enter into and relive the “Upper Room Experience” Sunday after Sunday. The same Jesus who, in the Upper Room, prepared His disciples for their preaching and witnessing mission, is present with us at the altar in the Eucharistic celebration.  The Risen […]

12-13 de abril: Preparándonos para Celebrar la Misa Dominical

Tener clara la imagen de Jesús era importante para sus primeros discípulos, y es importante también para nosotros. Es importante para toda la Iglesia, y para cada uno en particular. Hay tantas imágenes de Cristo, y tan distintas, que no es difícil confundirlo con “un fantasma.” (Lucas 24, 35-48) Se nos desvanece. Se nos olvida […]
