Grandparenting Faithfully How can you share your faith with your grandchildren? The same way as you share other important parts of your life, through stories and time. Share what you love with your grandchildren. Talk to them about your faith, why it is important to you. Tell them biblical stories, read to them age appropriate stories of the saints. Tell them stories about church from your childhood. What was it was like to go to church; what were celebrations like? What is it like now for you? How do you pray? Go to mass or parish events with them. Pray with them. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
O God, who willed that your Word should take on the reality of human flesh in the womb of the Virgin Mary, grant, we pray, that we, who confess our Redeemer to be God and man, may merit to become partakers even in his divine nature.
Happy 1st feast day of St. Oscar Romero. “I don’t want to be an anti, against anybody. I simply want to be the builder of a great affirmation: the affirmation of God,who loves us and who wants to save us.” ... See MoreSee Less
HEAR THE BELLS RINGING ~They’re singing Christ is Risen from the dead! After the stark silence of Holy Thursday and Good Friday, the toned down music at worship and a whole Lenten season without an Alleluia, when the Easter Vigil comes, we can no longer contain ourselves. The lights come up and darkness is dispelled.

So bring your bells to Mass and join in the JOY! Don’t be shy in celebrating but make a joyful noise unto the Lord! We will have small bells available next weekend after the masses. Donations appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord” Pope Francis. 24 Hours for the Lord is this Friday 3/29 @ 5pm-Saturday 3/30 @ 5pm. Yes, all night, and all day, a quiet place to pray & reflect, to respond to God’s invitation: ‘Come, let us talk things over, let us set things right’. (Isaiah 1:18) ... See MoreSee Less
