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 11: All Your Heart / Todo Tu Corazón

See if you see a trend emerge in these passages from St. John’s Gospel. “The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything into his hands.” “The Father loves the Son and shows Him all that He is doing.” “Jesus knew that the Father had put everything into His hands.” “All that the Father has […]

April 10: Encouragement / Ánimo

In John 3, 16, Jesús says, “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.” The famed Biblical scholar St. Jerome commented on this passage saying, “It would have been much easier for God to condemn the world, but He deliberately chose the harder task.” Don’t we find […]

The Old Testament of the Bible reminds us on occasion that: “Just as you do not know how the breath comes to the bones in the mother’s womb, so you do not know the work of God, who makes everything.” (Qoheleth 11, 5). The words of Jesus in the New Testament (John 3, 7-15) may […]

April 8: The Annunciation of the Lord / La Anunciación del Señor

This year, the Feast has been moved from March 25th to today because Holy Week’s schedule took precedent. Nonetheless, we […]

April 7: The Day of the Lord (Divine Mercy Sunday)

As we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, the Second Sunday of Easter, we find inspiration in these two stories. We hope you find inspiration in them as well. One night in 1935, Fiorello H. La Guardia, Mayor of New York City, showed up at Night Court in the poorest ward of the city. He dismissed the […]

7 de abril: El Día del Señor (Domingo de la Divina Misericordia)

Celebramos hoy el segundo Domingo de Pascua, Domingo de la Divina Misericordia: “Den gracias al Señor porque es bueno, porque es eterna su misericordia.” Así canta la Iglesia en la Octava de Pascua, casi recogiendo de labios de Cristo estas palabras del Salmo … de labios de Cristo Resucitado, que en el Cenáculo da el […]
