This Sunday we celebrate The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (Christ the King). This feast marks the end of the Liturgical Year. Next week we will begin an entirely new Liturgical Year with the First Sunday of Advent. This past year we have been in Year “B” so this coming year we will begin Year “C”. Our Sunday liturgy runs on a three-year cycle, Years A, B, and C. Each year centers on one of the Gospels. Year A features Matthew, B is Mark and C......
From the Pastor In this Sunday’s gospel (Mark 13: 24 – 32), Jesus speaks to us of the events which will signal the end of the world. He does not say these things to frighten us, but rather to convince us of the need to be vigilant . . . to be prepared for the final judgment. So then, let’s not focus on the signs and the prophesy of the end of the world. Instead, let us lead a watchful life and be ready to welcome the ‘Son of Man’ . .......
Reflection for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time…November 11, 2018 A widow shared with Elijah her last handful of flour and bit of oil. — All that she and her son had to live on. Another widow gave to the temple treasury two small coins. — Her whole livelihood. Christ offered his life to take away our sins. All three of the readings for this Sunday speak of extreme self-giving. How very appropriate on this day that we also remember our veterans. — Those who have given their youth, their innocence, their limbs,......
We are now into the great season of Lent. We will spend the next six weeks or so, preparing to celebrate the high point of our faith: the Paschal Mystery, the suffering death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the time of penance, and the way of purifying ourselves, trying to get rid of all those sinful habits so we can celebrate Easter with a renewed commitment to follow Christ. So it is perfectly fitting that we make some form of preparation. It should be a time of personal reflection of where we......
Raise the Roof – Church Parking As you can tell from the outside, the Roof project is moving along at a fairly quick pace. The back parking lot is filling up, as I mentioned it would, with dumpsters and storage boxes. That means that on the weekends there will be, as I mentioned a number of times, very few parking spots. We want to reserve those spots for handicapped parking. If you are able to park back there please display your placard. If you are not handicapped please don’t park back there.......
Raise the Roof Restoration As you know by now, the church is in dire need of a complete roof restoration; which includes: Replacing some of the support beams in the northwest corner of the ceiling Tearing off the old asphalt shingles Putting on new slate shingles on the church, sanctuary and rectory Tearing off and replacing all the gutters Tearing off and replacing all of the parapet iron wall caps with copper (essentially replacing all of the metal work up there) Installing a new lightning rod system Putting up pigeon spikes Tearing......
Sunday, December 9 We continue our preparations for the coming of Jesus. That is, we are preparing to celebrate His coming among us as a new-born baby in Bethlehem. Therefore, it is a special time for us to remember with deep gratitude God’s great love for us. “God so loved the world that He sent His only son…” ” And the Word was made flesh and came to live among us.” Today’s Gospel tells us to prepare for that coming, that remembering,......
