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

February 15: Lent and Faithfulness / La Cuaresma y Fidelidad

Having taken our first, important step along the Lenten journey yesterday, let’s now remember that Jesus said His whole life purpose, and why He was sent, was “that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10, 10) When we were invited on Ash Wednesday to “turn away from sin and be […]

February 14: Ash Wednesday / Miércoles de Ceniza

Jesus’ 40 days in the desert, preparing for His work and mission, provide a template for our experience of the 40 days of Lent. We are preparing for Easter, but we are also preparing for the work and mission the Lord has entrusted to us now and into the future. How are we to prepare? […]

Pero mañana comienza la Cuaresma, tiempo para quitarnos las máscaras y volver nuestro rostro y nuestro corazón a Dios y a los hermanos y hermanas. […]

February 11: The Day of the Lord

Most English translations of Mark 1, 40-45 (this Sunday’s Gospel) say that Jesus was “moved with pity” when He saw the leper who approached Him. This “movement” on the part of Jesus has traditionally been rendered “moved to His intestines” or “He felt it in His gut.” There are, however, some modern Bible scholars who […]

11 de febrero: El Día del Señor

Estamos descubriendo, gracias al Evangelio de San Marcos, que Jesús era muy sensible al sufrimiento de quienes encontraba en su camino, marginados por la sociedad, olvidados por la religión o rechazados por los sectores que se consideraban superiores moral o religiosamente. Es algo que le sale de dentro. Sabe que Dios no discrimina a nadie. […]
