May 16-25 is Laudato Si’ Week 2021. It marks the 5th anniversary of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical. He even gave a TED Talk! Join in as you can! While you are at it, participate in the Novena to Pentecost. For 9 days, take a few minutes to sing, “Come Holy Ghost.” What a difference walking with God makes!
Click on the links at the bottom of this page for our weekly bulletin. Go to our News & Events tab to learn more about:
- The Year of St. Joseph
- The Year of the Family, including actionable steps regarding the legalization of recreational use marijuana in our State.
What are your needs? Please call the parish center if we can help. We can at least offer prayer for you. We hope you will continue to practice charity by checking on your neighbors, offering prayers and supporting us with your offerings, which can be sent through US Mail or online.
This statement, issued by the Vatican, reminds us of our responsibilities, inter-connectivity and the call to solidarity as we are still in the pandemic.
We, your staff, will continue to
- pray for you and the whole world
- send by email a weekly letter which has the bulletin attached. (If you are not getting it, please call the parish office to update your information.)
- also offer via Facebook Live the Mass (every day except Wednesdays and Saturdays). (You do not need to join Facebook to see this; it is open to the public.) All Masses end with an Act of Spiritual Communion.
- provide a link in the bulletin to the bi-weekly newsletter, The Family Zone, available, thanks in part, to your donations to the Catholic Ministries Appeal.
If you wish to receive Reconciliation & Penance, a sacrament that needs to be celebrated annually (at least), please contact one of the priests to make an appointment or go to St. Michael’s on Saturday at 4pm. Reconciliation will be heard in the Chapel.
As you feel comfortable, I hope to see you in person at Mass!
God bless you!
Fr. Leo, Pastor
