Father's Day and The Parables of The Kingdom

Saturday, June 16, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Today we pause in the midst of our busy lives to honor our fathers and to thank God for their care, protection and love. Father’s Day traces its origin to Spokane Washington where the daughter of a widowed father, one of six children named Sonora Smart Dodd, first celebrated a day set aside for fathers at the YMCA on June 10, 1910. Her fathe ...Read more

The Feast of St. Anthony of Padua and Matthew's Gospel

Saturday, June 09, 2018
Dear Parishioners, The return to the Sunday liturgy of Ordinary Time (we celebrate the 10th Sunday in Ordinary time this week-end) also brings us back to the Sunday gospels from the Gospel of St. Matthew. The position of Matthew as the first of the four gospel writers in the New Testament reflects both the view that it was the first to be written, a view that goes back to ...Read more

Dear Parishioners, While the Church considers this liturgical time as Ordinary time, she seizes upon the opportunity, following Easter time, to celebrate the solemn feasts we have just completed, Pentecost and the Solemnity of the Trinity.

The Mystery and Reality of The Holy Trinity

Saturday, May 26, 2018
Dear Parishioners, With the celebration of Pentecost over, the Church returns to Ordinary time. During the past few weeks we have celebrated the resurrection of Christ from the dead on Easter Sunday, his ascension into heaven and his return to the Father and last Sunday we celebrated the day on which he sent the Holy Spirit upon the apostles, commanding them to go f ...Read more

The Feast of Pentacost - Our Strength To Evangelize

Saturday, May 19, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Today the Church celebrates the great feast of Pentecost. Imagine what it must have been like for the apostles during those past ten days. The Master whom they had followed through the hills and valleys of Galilee, to whom they had been witness to his great miracles of healing and his preaching and teaching, had been away from them during those ominous  ...Read more

Our First Communicants and Mother's Day Celebration

Saturday, May 12, 2018
Dear Parishioners, It has long been the tradition in our parish to have our children receive their First Communion on the day before Mather's Day, the second Sunday of the month of May. So many of our children are celebrating the day of their First Communion with grandmothers or other relatives who have come to celebrate Mother's Day, and so we welcome all who have come t ...Read more

Our Challenge to Love and Serve All Others

Sunday, May 06, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Today in the gospel the Holy Spirit moves us as a faith community and as individual disciples to a deeper level of faith, to take the next step on our faith journey. In the comic strip Peanuts, Lucy was the classic know it all. One of her most memorable lines was expressed in great frustration: "I love mankind she said, it’s people that I ca ...Read more

St. Paul's Letters and His Life

Sunday, April 29, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Each year as we approach the day of First Communion we offer a teaching Mass to the children and their parents so that the children might understand the Mass a little better. You may have noticed the small booklets on the Mass which are available for children as they enter Church. We hope that by following this little booklet the children may come  ...Read more

Saint Mark and His Gospel

Sunday, April 22, 2018
Dear Parishioners, On Wednesday we celebrate the feast of St. Mark. Mark, called John Mark in Acts and referred to as: "Mark my son" in 1 Peter, was a Hellenic Jew in the Jerusalem community and a cousin of Barnabas as St. Paul tells us in his letter to the Colossians. Mark is best known to us as the author of one of the four gospels. In fact, the oldest and shorte ...Read more

The Role of Liturgy In The Church

Sunday, April 15, 2018
Dear Parishioners, In 1961 Pope John XXII shocked the Catholic world when he announced that he would convene an Ecumenical Council. This would be the first such Council held since the First Vatican Council called by Pope Pius IX which closed on June 29, 1868. That Council was the first Council since the Council of Trent which was held three centuries earlier. ...Read more
