God Is Always With Us

From Our Pastor The readings for today remind us that God is always with us and always caring for us, no matter where we are or what our circumstances are. The first reading tells of how Peter and John went from Jerusalem to Samaria to pray with the people there and call down the Holy Read More

Unity in Diversity

From Our Associate Pastor I love today’s first reading from the Acts of the Apostles. The Hellenists complained to the Hebrews that their widows were being neglected in the distribution of resources. There seemed to be favoritism by the Hebrews since they still spoke the original language of Judaism instead of Greek (Hellas is another Read More

It’s Día del Niño! Children’s Day!

From Our Director of Religious Education Dear Children, Today we celebrate you! It’s Día del Niño! Children’s Day! In Mexico, children have a special holiday just for them (and it’s not Christmas, that’s about Jesus). Our parish celebrates it here in your honor. (En Español) In today’s readings, we heard Psalm 23, it’s about the Read More

To Find the Lost Sheep

From Our Associate Pastor Next Sunday is traditionally called the Good Shepherd Sunday, where the Gospel reading is typically about Jesus telling the parable of, or describing himself as the Good Shepherd. One of my favorite parables is about the shepherd who leaves his ninety-nine sheep in order to find the lost one. It not Read More

Mercy Is the Reason

From Our Deacon This Second Sunday of Easter is a day that should be celebrated with the same enthusiasm and joy as the previous Sunday. The Church has customarily celebrated this first week after the holy night of Easter as a major Sunday. We have lived the mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Read More

From Our Pastor Today we celebrate the victory of our Lord over death. Jesus has risen from the dead and has become the source of spiritual life to all who believe in Him. This is why we call out Alleluia. We are dead no more, but alive in the Lord. We Christians have as our Read More

Welcome to the Greatest Time Of Our Lives

From Our Associate Pastor PALM SUNDAY As we start Holy Week with Palm Sunday, we see a dramatic shift in tone: we turn from the triumphant entry into Jerusalem towards the Cross. Holy Week is about Christ’s Passion, death, and Resurrection; and that means that Holy Week is about God’s deep love for humanity. We Read More

Into New Life

From St. Paul Center As we draw near to the end of Lent, today’s Gospel clearly has Jesus’ passion and death in view. That’s why John gives us the detail about Lazarus’ sister, Mary—that she is the one who anointed the Lord for burial (see John 12:3, 7). His disciples warn against returning to Judea; Read More
