Welcome

Striving to be a grateful parish following Christ by loving God, and loving our neighbors as ourselves through our words, deeds, and thoughts.


"In the present situation, in which we find ourselves living more or less isolated, we are invited to rediscover and deepen the value of the communion that unites all the members of the church. United to Christ we are never alone, we form one body, of which he is the head. It is an union that is nourished with prayer, and also with spiritual communion in the Eucharists, a practice that is much recommended when it is not possible to receive the sacrament. I say this to everyone, and especially to those living alone.”"

― Pope Francis

Sunday Mass Now Online

Fourth Sunday of Lent, March 22, 2020

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have created a YouTube Channel for our local Catholic community. We recorded Fathers Bernard D'Sa and Rowell Gumalay saying Mass today so those who are sheltering in place and unable to attend services would have access to Mass with their local priests. The video was shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notification of new posts. Don't forget to turn on the sound and adjust the video quality to your needs. You can click here or on the graphic below to go to our channel.

Weekly Reflection

Fifth Sunday of Lent

By Nina Sophie Heereman, SSD March 29, 2020 – Readings: Ezekiel 37.12-14; Romans 8.8-11; John 11.1-45

The Resurrection and the Life

“Oh, how foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have declared! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?” (Lk 24.25-26). As he talks with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Jesus speaks as though it were crystal clear that the entire mystery of his death and resurrection has been foretold by the Jewish Scriptures. But the two disciples, like many Christian readers throughout the ages, struggle to see how this could be so evident. More

Lenten Fast and Abstinence

Abstinence from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent by all Catholics 14 years and older. Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those bound by this rule may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted. From its earliest days, the Church has urged the baptized and catechumens to observe the threefold discipline of fasting, almsgiving and prayer as a preparation for the celebration of Easter. Failure to observe individual days of penance is not considered serious, but failure to observe any penitential days at all or a substantial number of such days must be considered serious.

Pope Francis's 2020 Lenten Message

Pope Francis is calling on the faithful not to let the Lenten season of grace pass in vain, and to live as children of God acknowledging and obeying His law, in particular in regards to our brothers and sisters and to creation.

In his Message for Lent 2020, Pope Francis points to the paschal mystery – the mystery of Jesus’ Passion, Death, and Resurrection – as the basis of conversion. The Message bears the title "We implore you on behalf of Christ: be reconciled to God", a quote from St Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians.

Catholic Phone Apps

We have gotten some questions about finding high quality apps that support us in our practice of the Catholic faith. After much research, we are recommending that people visit CatholicApps.com

CatholicApps.com was created in response to the call to evangelization from Saint John Paul II, and then continued on through Pope Benedict, and of course the call for deeper evangelization from Pope Francis
