Pope Francis' Intentions

The Pope's universal prayer intention for March 2014 is
"that all cultures may respect the rights and
dignity of women."

His intention for evangelization is: “that many young people may accept the Lord's invitation to consecrate their lives to proclaiming the Gospel."


Pulpit Announcements for
April 12th and 13th, 2014

A huge thank you to all who participated in our parish clean-up day today.
They did a thorough cleaning of the pews and found gum, food and wrappers, but sadly no money. 

We need ministers to sign up for Holy Week Masses and services. Please help in our most important days of the year.

Please try to participate in Holy Week services beginning with a Scripture and Hymns service Sunday/tonight at 7 PM.

The Seder Meal has been canceled.

On Holy Thursday, the Mass of the Lord’s Supper is at 7 PM. To help all people receive the great mercy and grace that God wishes to bestow on them through the death and resurrection of His son Jesus on Easter and culminating on Divine Mercy Sunday we are asking all families  to pick up the Divine Mercy novena available in the gathering area and pray it starting on Good Friday. We will pray it as a parish after the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday which begins at 3 PM and every evening thereafter at 6:30pm.

Please pay attention to the schedule for Easter Masses. There will be no 5 PM Mass next Saturday. Instead the great Easter Vigil begins outside at 8:30 PM and will last at least 2 hours. There will be a Mass in English for the Filipino community. There will be no Latin Mass on Easter Sunday. At all of our Easter Masses, there will be a 2nd collection for the education of seminarians in our diocese.

Tickets for the annual auction to benefit St. Mary’s School are on sale after Mass in the Gathering Area.

The parish youth will be doing a Chik Fil A fundraiser. See the bulletin for details.

Message From
Father Peter

During Lent, I offer this prayer which is based on Pope Francis' message for Lent this year:

God our Father, you sent your son in weakness and poverty into the world that you love so much. During this season of Lent, we ask that you help us to imitate Jesus by sacrificing ourselves for our brothers and sisters who are materially, morally, and spiritually destitute. Let us see Jesus' face in the poor and the outcast. By serving them, may we love them and serve Christ. Let us be joyful heralds of your Gospel message of mercy and hope. And finally let us not be afraid to feel the hurt through our charity for then we know that it is real. We ask all these things through Our Lady and her son Christ our Lord.

Amen.
