Dear Parishioners, Last weekend in my homily I talked about how focusing on sacred scripture in prayer is one of the ways St. Paul suggests that we overcome anxiety in our lives. I did not have enough time to get into how to pray in this manner because it is a very vast topic. Praying…

Dear Parishioners, I am glad to see that the number of people who have come back to Mass has grown over the last couple months. For the last three weeks, we have had more than 500 people at Masses and that’s a good thing. It’s a sign that people really desire to worship Our Lord….

Week of August 16, 2020

Dear Parishioners, For this week’s bulletin, I just have a couple of practical and scheduling issues I would like to bring up to you all. 1. Thank you to everyone for cooperating to wear masks and to keep social distance. I have had to correct some people at some of the Masses. But, every- one…

Week of August 9, 2020
