Can You Help?

As we begin the process of transitioning to a more “normal” weekend Mass experience, we are in great need of parishioners who can step up as greeters and ushers at our weekend Masses. Your job will be simple – just arrive a few minutes early for Mass so you can welcome parishioners as they enter the church and help with any questions about seating and Mass protocols for newcomers. You can help occasionally or on a regular basis – whatever works for you.

Advance Reservations for Mass Are Not Required This Weekend, April 10-11

As you know, since resuming in-person Masses last June, our Collaborative has required advance reservations for weekend Masses. Advance reservations allowed us to ensure compliance with state and Archdiocesan guidelines regarding capacity, social distancing, and contact tracing, and to reduce risk as much as possible for our parishioners, clergy and staff as we began to gather together again…

Evening for Women: “Wisdom Speaks in the Evening: The On-Going Gift of Discernment”

Evening for Women: “Wisdom Speaks in the Evening: The On-Going Gift of Discernment”

Discernment is an intentional attitude for making important decisions in our lives. It is more than making a choice or a pro-con list; it calls upon the Spirit of God for guidance.

He is Risen! A Message from Fr. Jim on Easter Sunday

He is Risen! A Message from Fr. Jim on Easter Sunday

My dear friends in Christ,

Jesus’ disciples were feeling utterly destitute.  How would they go on without him?  In Mark’s account, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome had been there as their beloved Jesus was crucified.  These same women made their way to the tomb early in the morning on the third day.  As the approached the tomb, they saw that the stone had been rolled back.  What could this mean? They had come only to be near his body.  They had seen him die an anguished death.  Could the angel’s words be true?  Could they dare to hope?

The Cardinal Sean’s Easter Message

The Cardinal Sean’s Easter Message

Easter is the center and core of Christian faith. Christian faith is Resurrection faith; the Risen Christ, having conquered sin and death, remains with us across the ages. When we celebrate “the Triduum” — the great feasts of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday — we recall and present again through words and worship the Passion, Death and Resurrection of the Lord.
