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.

What's Happening

September 23-24: Preparing to Celebrate Sunday’s Mass

It is always true that reading the Scriptures before coming to Mass is not only wise, but also a great way to “get more out of the Mass.” We might also add that it is a great way to put more into the Mass! (If you need help: https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/092423.cfm) The teaching of Jesus is clear […]

23-24 de septiembre: Preparándonos para Celebrar la Misa Dominical

Todavía son muchos los convencidos de que en esta vida estamos para hacer méritos, sumar puntos, y ganarnos la felicidad eterna.

By our own unaided strength we can never do […]

22 de septiembre: Todo es Don, Todo es Gracia

“Entonces Jesús les dijo esta parábola: ‘Salió el sembrador a sembrar su semilla….’” (Lucas 8, 4-15) Ya conocemos de sobra la parábola del sembrador y la explicación que da el mismo Jesús. Cuando meditamos en esta parábola siempre terminamos pensando en qué tipo de tierra somos. Si nos parecemos a la del borde del camino, […]

September 21: St. Matthew

Saint Matthew, the first-century tax collector turned Apostle who chronicled the life and ministry of Jesus in his Gospel, is celebrated by the Church today, September 21. Although relatively little is known about the life of St. Matthew, the account he wrote of Jesus’ ministry is of inestimable value to the Church, particularly in its […]
