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

March 20 / 20 de marzo: St. Joseph / San José

Today marks the (transferred) feastday of St. Joseph, the Husband of Mary. Since the 10th century, March 19th has been the date of this celebration, but is has always been “transferred” to the 20th of March when the 19th falls on a Sunday. The Gospels briefly mention St. Joseph and say that he was a […]

19 de marzo: El Día del Señor

Escuchamos hoy, como el domingo anterior, un largo texto del Evangelio (Juan 9, 1-41). Y, también como el domingo anterior, el texto nos ha contado la historia de una persona que se encontró a Cristo en su camino, y salió transformado de ese encuentro. El domingo pasado fue la samaritana, que iba a sacar agua […]

March 19: The Day of the Lord / Our Lenten Mission

This Fourth Sunday of Lent is known as “Laetare Sunday.” The title is taken from the opening antiphon for the Mass. The Latin is translated “Rejoice, Jerusalem, and all who love her. Be joyful….” This sentiment expresses our joy in anticipation of the Resurrection of the Lord. Today’s Gospel (John 9, 1-41) is one of […]

18-19 de marzo: Preparándonos para Celebrar la Misa Dominical

El Cuarto Domingo de Cuaresma nos enfrenta con nuestra ceguera – porque no vemos nada. Vemos escasamente la superficie de las personas, de las cosas, y de los acontecimientos, pero no vemos su verdadera y profunda realidad, o dicho Bíblicamente: “el hombre mira las apariencias, pero el Señor mira el corazón.” El corazón de la […]

March 18-19: Preparing to Celebrate Sunday’s Mass

The Catholic Scripture readings for Sunday Masses rotate on a three-year cycle. The present year is called Year A and it offers us an interesting selection of readings for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of Lent: the Samaritan Woman at the Well (John 4, 3-42); the Man Born Blind (John 9, 1-41); and the […]

March 17: St. Patrick

The Church honors St. Patrick today – Catholic bishop, “Apostle of Ireland,” and one of the most well-loved and celebrated saints of all time. From special Masses to parades, it is as if the whole world rejoices on St. Patrick’s day. This great patron of Ireland was born in Scotland to Roman parents around 385. […]
