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.

What's Happening

December 4: The Day of the Lord

On this Second Sunday of the Advent time, St. John the Baptist enters on the scene (Matthew 3, 1-12). He arrives with his message about God’s future, which he called the Kingdom of Heaven. The Baptist’s preaching was simple: “Repent!” His version of “repentance” is simply (yet profoundly): “Admit that you’ve gotten it wrong, allow […]

4 de diciembre: El Día del Señor

En este Segundo Domingo de Adviento nos estamos preparando para la venida plena de Cristo a nuestras familias, a nuestra comunidad parroquial, y al mundo entero. ¿Qué vamos a hacer al respecto? Primero, tenemos que transformarnos nosotros mismos, y entonces nuestro mundo cambiará. San Juan el Bautista vino para preparar a los judíos para la […]

December 3-4: Preparing to Celebrate Sunday’s Mass

The Second Sunday of Advent reminds us that, on the one hand, salvation is God’s doing, and we cannot earn His blessings. We are saved by God’s favor and grace. On the other hand, we must cooperate with that favor and grace because God cannot force His bounty or blessing upon us. That is why […]

2 de diciembre: Que Dios Abra Nuestros Ojos

Hemos iniciado un nuevo año litúrgico, un nuevo camino y una nueva experiencia de fe, que nos empuja a caminar con más fuerza en busca del Señor. Este camino inicia con el tiempo del Adviento, una temporada que nos invita a entrar en “clima de preparación” para recibir a Jesús. En este tiempo de espera, […]

December 2: Seeing with Advent Lenses

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who lived in a land of gloom a light has shone. You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at harvest, as they exult when dividing the spoils.” (Isaiah 9, 1-2) Although we see […]
