As we complete the Octave of Easter the Church invites us to dive into the great mystery of God’s unfathomable mercy. It was St. John Paul II who said, “Where, if not in the Divine Mercy, can the world find refuge and the light of hope?” We too are aware of the great storms of our society and world. There is a constant tension in the world in the midst of political instabilities, violence, hatred, and much more. And yet, it is in the Divine Mercy that we find refuge and hope. We seek protection under the great goodness of God who can take on the sinfulness of mankind and offer healing and forgiveness.READ MORE
Jesus Christ is risen! A very happy Easter to each and everyone of you. This is the great solemnity that follows upon the 40 days of Lent and begins the 50 days of the Easter season. We spent 40 days preparing ourselves through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Now the Church invites us to celebrate for 50 days in the joy of the risen Lord.READ MORE
Happy Palm Sunday!
Holy Week is upon as we celebrate Palm Sunday this weekend. Mass begins outside with the blessing of palms and procession into the church. The movements are important for us. We do not merely go through the motions and walk in like any other Sunday. Rather, we are among the crowd who sing “Hosanna” as Jesus entered Jerusalem the week before His Passion.READ MORE
I pray everyone has had a good week. Thanks to all of our volunteers for another wonderful Fish Fry!

Please come on by and grab a plate of our wonderful food prepared by your fellow parishioners. It is always a wonderful time and a good chance to connect with people outside of Mass.READ MORE
