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

September 29: The Holy Archangels / Los Santos Arcángeles

What a joy to celebrate the feast of the three Archangels: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael! The word ‘Archangel’ means ‘high-ranking angel’—the same way that ‘archbishop’ means a high-ranking bishop, for example. Saint Michael won the battle over Satan when Satan confronted God. His name means ‘Who is like God?’ The implicit answer is that, of […]

September 28: The Enormous Gift He Has Given Us

“Christ is reserved in our churches as the spiritual center of the heart of the community, the universal Church and all humanity, since within the veil of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible heart of the Church, the Redeemer of the world, the center of all hearts, by whom all things are and of […]

September 25-26: The Light of the World / La Luz del Mundo

In Luke 8, 16-18, Jesus talks about God’s Word as something which cannot (and must not) be hidden. We are not a “mystery religion” in the sense that the Gospel is only for a small group of “insiders.” As Jesus says it, eh Gospel message is to be proclaimed “from the housetops.” We understand Jesus […]

September 24: The Day of the Lord

Psalm 145 reminds us today that “the Lord is just in all His ways, gracious and merciful.” The Prophet Isaiah’s words (spoken on behalf of the Lord God) probably ought to be understood in light of the Psalm: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord. “As high […]
