Prayer of Transition

This prayer of transition was written by the members of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council.  As Cardinal George prepares for his transition and the official process to replace him has begun, we encourage everyone to pray for a smooth transition.   PRAYER OF TRANSITION God most merciful and wise, Bless Cardinal Francis George as he prepares to conclude his ministry among us as our bishop.  Give him strength and wisdom to continue to serve your people in new ways.

Our Father

Our Father

I always say the Our Father but I always have trouble with one of those petitions. Which one, Charlie? “Lead us not into temptation.” Why would we have to ask God to do that? Why would He want to lead us into temptation in the first place? Well, a lot of people have the same question, Charlie. The best way I know of to solve that problem is to go to the CCC. What’s the CCC? The Catechism of the Catholic Church, every family should have one. It comes out in a paperback edition. Go out and get one. I will, I will! But tell me what it says. Why would God want to lead us into temptation?...

Mass Schedule Changes

Mass Schedule Changes

As previously stated, it is necessary for us to adjust our Mass Schedule with the hopes that it will bring our parish family together by celebrating Mass as a larger community with more people at Mass. Saturday’s 5 pm Mass will remain the same. There will be some adjustments on Sunday mornings with only two Mass times offered. These changes will begin on or shortly after Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 2014. Changing the Mass schedule is never an easy decision, though in hindsight this change might seem like a “no brainer.” I’d like to share with you the history and process of coming to this...

Words From Pastor’s Desk

Dear Parishioners, Each of us is now a part of history. Last Sunday, we witnessed the great celebration and Canonization of two Popes – Ss.John Paul II and John XXIII; the Mass was concelebrated by two living Popes. This has never happened before. Two new Saints and two beautiful role models we are able to follow, especially for those of us who either personally met, visited, or watched these men through media through the years. What a wonderful way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday. Thank you to all who participated in our Divine Mercy Devotion. A special Thank You to Catholic Charities who...

St. John Paul II the Great – My Hero

St. John Paul II the Great – My Hero

As a teenager, I never thought that I would witness such an amazing place in the history of the church and the world. On October 16, 1978, the communist propaganda television program was interrupted. At 6 pm, I heard that John Paul had suddenly died and I saw a mighty church (then I did not know it was St. Peter’s Basilica). The news continued with the naming of the new Pope – it was Poland’s Cardinal Karol Wojtyla. We were in shock. Suddenly I heard the church bells ringing. Joy and hope dawned in our hearts – I will, we will, be free. I remember well the words of one of the religious order...
