Pastor’s Corner – February 18, 2018

On this First Sunday of Lent, we hear the words of Jesus after His forty days in the desert:  “This is the time of fulfillment.  The kingdom of God is at hand.  Repent, and believe in the gospel.”  Today, we focus on Jesus’ command to repent and believe in the gospel.  The word “repent” is used in common parlance as meaning sorrow for one’s sins.  However, there are several nuanced meanings of “repent,” which is used to translate a Greek word in the bible.  The original Greek word also means “to change,” especially to change one’s mind or to change the “inner person,” particularly in accepting the will of God. … Read More

Pastor’s Corner – February 11, 2018

This Wednesday is “Ash Wednesday” and marks the beginning of our annual Lenten journey. The season of Lent is a time to focus on repentance and the forgiveness of our sins as well as disclipline in our spiritual life.  We amend our lives by focusing on three things: Prayer, Almsgiving and Fasting.  As your pastor, it is part of my mission to provide you with the tools you need to be disposed to receive the gift of God’s Grace.

 

During Lent, we will have many activities to help foster a good prayer life. In its totality, prayer is simply our relationship with God.Read More

World Day of the Sick 
February 11, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, is designated as World Day of the Sick. The focus of this remembrance is prayer for healing and recognizing the value of redemptive suffering. In conjunction with this day, we will offer Annointing of the Sick at the Saturday 4pm Mass on February 17, 2018 for those who suffer from a serious illness or are infirmed due to age. Guidelines for reception of the sacrament will be published next weekend.  If you or someone you know would like to receive the Sacrament of Annointing of the Sick, please make plans to come to this Mass.Read More

Parish Pictorial Directory

An accurate parish directory is something that has been long overdue considering the changes our parish has undergone over the last 10 years. In that regard, we hope that each family will schedule their pictures to be taken for the directory.  The following dates have been scheduled with the photographers:

 

March 13, 14, 15 and 16, 2018     2pm to 9pm

March 17, 2018                          10am to 5pm

March 22 and 23, 2018                2pm to 9pm

March 24, 2018                          10am to 5pm

 

There will be volunteers after each Mass this weekend and they will be happy to help you schedule.  In addition, you can schedule your pictures online at https://booknow-lifetouch.appointment-plus.com/y9y4rv63/.… Read More

Pastor’s Corner – January 28, 2018

With the beginning of the new year, a spring time of sorts comes early to our parish – the beginning of sacramental preparation of our children for their First Confession and First Communion, and of our young adults for their reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. We have seven of our children preparing for their First Confession and First Communion, and about 25 of our young adults preparing for Confirmation. This time of year is a good time for us as a parish community to reflect on the goodness of God in giving us the gift of the Sacraments, which are channels of grace that help us to live the Christian vocation given to each of us.… Read More

Pastor’s Corner – January 21, 2018

Monday next week, January 22, we as a country will mark the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which required states to legalize abortion. Since that date, some 50 plus million children were never given the opportunity to live the life God intended to give them, an opportunity we may take for granted. Science is slowly but surely catching up to what we have always known in faith, that life begins at the time of conception and should be nurtured and protected from that time, just like any human being who has been born. In this day and age, the value of human life and its dignity is not fully recognized by the world in general, or in our society in particular.Read More
