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

November 24: Thanksgiving Day

Have you ever had the occasion to read or hear something from the Bible and then conclude: “I’ve heard all this before?” Or beforehand, “it’s unlikely that I will hear something new here?”  Maybe it’s not so important that we always hear something “new,” but that we are reminded of lessons that we have already […]

Perdono de corazón a mis enemigos.” Antes de ser fusilado, se puso de […]

22 de noviembre: Gente de Esperanza

Somos gente de esperanza. No tendríamos que preocuparnos sobre la cuestión de cuándo llegará el fin del mundo, sino vivir como creyentes, que sabemos que tenemos que vivir responsablemente el Evangelio cada día. Si hacemos esto, no tenemos ningún motivo para temer. *** Hoy, Iglesia Universal celebra la Fiesta de Santa Cecilia. El Papa Gregorio […]

November 22: The Eternal Kingdom

“Empires Come and Go – The Church Endures.” One of the reasons why tyrants hate the Church so much is that it endures. Tyrants want total control – we call their governments “totalitarian” regimes. They want total control, and so they can’t stand the Church because it is a constant reminder that they don’t have […]
