Be Renewed: In the wake of the pandemic, many faithful have been left questioning “Should I go to Mass this weekend?”; many faithful have also struggled to understand the blessings of encountering the real presence of Christ at Mass.
To help promote a deeper understanding, our diocese is launching a seven-week program to re-introduce the gifts we receive when attending Mass, none greater than the Eucharist. We will begin next weekend, with a series of homilies provided by Bishop McElroy. We invite you to click here for the article for more information about this initiative and the themes of the homilies.
You’re Invited: For children and teens who have received First Communion, we invite you to help us during Mass as Altar Servers. We will have a New Altar Servers Training on Friday, September 10th, at 6:30 p.m. in the Serra Center.
Diocese of San Diego News: Our Diocese will host a Feast of San Lorenzo Ruiz Mass and celebration on Saturday, September 11th, beginning at 9 AM at Santa Sophia Catholic Church in Spring Valley.
