Our Mission Statement
By God's grace, we as a faith family bring the presence of Christ and the Church to our community, through His Word and Sacraments and our daily witness to living the virtues of faith, hope and love. With the help of God, we aspire to be a Catholic Christian community of compassion, love, and respect by living the Gospel in word and deed.
Message from our Pastor
In the midst of our Advent journey, we
celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate
Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
which is usually celebrated on December 8 as
a Holy Day of Obligation - this year, however,
it falls on a Sunday during Advent, so it is
transferred to Monday, December 9, and the
Church has dispensed the obligation this year.
Nonetheless, I will offer Mass at 8 a.m. on Monday.
With peace and prayers in Christ,
By Almighty God's grace, Mary, the Mother of
Jesus, was born immaculate, conceived without original
sin and remained sinless all the days of her life. In this way,
God prepared Mary to conceive of Jesus Christ by the
power of the Holy Spirit and give birth to Jesus. The
following is a reflection on Luke 1:26-38, with help from
Father Romanus Cessario, OP (The Magnificat Advent
Companion, 2006, magnificat.com):
