Living the Gospel – January 16, 2022 Second Sunday of Ordinary Time – Though the Feast of the Epiphany occurred twelve days after Christmas, the early weeks of Ordinary time have their own “epiphanies.” Last week, with the Baptism of Jesus we recognize our relationship with God as co-heirs and…

From Our Pastor – January 02, 2022 Brothers and sisters, how appropriate that in the midst of the Octave of Christmas, the whole Church interjects the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God! This truth is announced in the prophecies of the Old Testament, proclaimed in the Gospels of the…

From Our Pastor: 2nd Sunday Of Advent 2021 Last Weekend We Spoke About The Call To Wait. But As Troublesome As That Can Sometimes Be, It Doesn’t Mean To Be Idle Or Passive In Our Waiting. The Scriptures Are Today Calling Our Waiting To Be Active! Active In Announcing What…

From Our Pastor Advent 2021 I arrived here July 1. I can hardly believe it already Advent! And yet, here we are. We have two different callings in Advent; wait and prepare! Neither one can be ignored. Waiting is essential and beneficial. We know this from many aspects of our…
