Our Priests and Staff are healthy and eager to return to work! Masses will resume Friday, July 3.

June 30, 2020

Fr. Jess and Fr. Clement are deeply appreciative of all of the well wishes and support they received while in quarantine owing to the COVID-19 virus. They experienced mild symptoms and are so happy to have been given the "green light" to resume all of their duties, beginning with the regular mass schedule commencing this Friday with 8:00am Daily Mass. Our Saturday schedule resumes as usual with 8:00am Daily Mass and 5:00pm Vigil Mass with confessions heard in the former Gift Shop from 3:30-4:30pm.​

The regular mass schedule continues on Sunday with masses at 7:00am, 9:00am, 11:00am and the 4:00pm Teen Mass.  Both the 11:00am and 4:00pm Masses will also be live-streamed through our website.

Those who participate in the 11:00am live-stream Mass are invited to receive communion in the church from 12:00-12:30pm on Sunday.  You may also make a Spiritual Communion at any mass you view online.

It is very important to know that everyone who goes inside the church for Mass, adoration, prayer or any other reason must wear a mask. This weekend we will have a small tent in the courtyard  before each mass offering masks and hand sanitizer.  We greatly appreciate your cooperation with this new mandate.  Also, please know that communion will be dispensed to the hand only.

We are all still dispensed from the Sunday Mass obligation.  Please do not attend Mass if you feel unwell or have any concerns about your well-being and safety.

Pop Quiz! Why did Jesus speak in parables?

When I was younger, I always thought the entire point of the parables was to take complicated teachings and make them understandable through the use of stories. If that was your answer, you get partial credit. Let’s take another look at the heart of this Sunday’s gospel.

“The disciples approached him and said, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” He said to them in reply, “Because knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted.”

Jesus used parables to as a way to make difficult teachings more understandable to those open to him, while—at the same time—confounding those whose hearts were (and are) closed to him.

How do we know this?
