Church Reopening

We are open again for Mass and receiving our Lord in Holy Communion—many have already joined us, even though the obligation to go to Sunday Mass is still dispensed by the Cardinal. Jesus himself has been waiting to reengage us in a wonderful embrace and dialogue, just as he did with his apostles and followers after his death and resurrection: Welcome back, you of little faith, he says to us. Blessed are those who have not seen (or received) and yet believe.

We will be live streaming the 10:00 am English and 12:00pm Spanish masses on our Youtube Channel.

New Sunday Mass Schedule:

Saturday Vigil: 5:00pm (English); 6:30pm (Polish)
Sunday: 8:00am (English); 10:00am (English); 12:00pm (Spanish); 7:15pm (English)

Please register for mass online here.

Pastor’s Message

Dear Friends in Christ,

The greatest gift that parents can give their children—as mentioned two weeks ago—is their example of love that they give by loving each other. Of course, this is not always easy and doesn’t mean that conflict doesn’t arise from time to time in their marriage. What it does mean is that we need to handle that conflict in a loving manner.

St. Josemaría suggests a great rule: “Don’t argue in front of the children, because it forces children to take mom’s or dad’s side and it makes them suffer.” As children get their sense of identity and value (self-esteem) from being the “incarnation” of the love between mom and dad, seeing them argue causes great turmoil—it makes them feel torn apart from the inside.
