As Death Comes Close

Friday, November 01, 2019
As Death Comes Close: Approaching the moment of earthly death is an uncomfortable time for most of us. God gives us the Sacraments in our life so that we have a concrete real experience of God’s presence with us. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is the Sacrament that God gives us to experience His comforting presence when we are seriously ill or approaching death. “Ap ...Read more

CATHOLIC PARISHES ARE GROWING

Friday, October 11, 2019
CATHOLIC PARISHES ARE GROWING! What is the secret behind the growth in Catholic parishes throughout our country? In studies seeking to understand why some parishes are growing - and needing to build larger facilities - three factors have emerged as key to vibrant parishes: excellence in music, proactively welcoming, and a homily with a concrete message.

All Will Know You Are My Disciples If You Love One Another

Sunday, May 19, 2019
Dear Parishioners These days following the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb must have been challenging, yet curious, days for the apostles and the followers of Jesus. For forty days he would be with them until he ascends into heaven, and during this time we discover that during this time Jesus’ resurrection has inaugurated a new era in human history. John’s gospel this week ...Read more

Easter and Our Faith in the Resurrection

As we celebrate this Easter Sunday, we relive the central act of our faith. With our mind’s eye we can picture the impact of the angel’s voice: He is not here, for he has risen as He said…" The Acts of the Apostles, the writings of ...Read more

The Prodigal Son and Repentence

Friday, April 05, 2019
Dear Parishioners Last Sunday the story of the prodigal son taught us that authentic justice does not lie in equitable remuneration, but rather in mercifulness. Today’s Gospel repeats the same message, but in an even clearer way. Applying it to a specific incident. This is not simply an intellectual contest between Jesus and his opponents, it involves a living person. The story abou ...Read more

Laetare Sunday: From Rejoicing to Repenting and Reconciliation

Sunday, March 31, 2019
Dear Parishioners As we reach the mid point of Lent with this Fourth Sunday of Lent, we pause to celebrate what is known as Laetare Sunday. Laetare is the Latin word for "rejoice" and the opening words of the Entrance Antiphon today are "rejoice, Jerusalem, and all who love her, exult and be satisfied at her consoling breast." But the theme quickly changes from rejoicing to repenting and  ...Read more

Lent: A Time of Renewal and Conversion

Saturday, March 02, 2019
Dear Parishioners As we observe Ash Wednesday this week we enter into another Lenten period in our lives. During the following forty days we prepare through prayer and sacrifice for the glorious feast of Easter. Last year as we approached Ash Wednesday Pope Francis wrote: "Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ's victory over death. This season urgen ...Read more
