Our Lenten Journey Continues

Dear Friends, Monday, March 25, is the solemnity of the Annunciation when the angel Gabriel visited Mary and shared God’s plan for her to become the Mother of God. I came across this beautiful quote from Mother Teresa, “If you ever feel distressed during your day, call upon our Lady, just say this simple prayer: ‘Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.’ I must admit, this prayer has never failed me.” Indeed, our Blessed Mother never fails those who call upon her. In this moment of time, we need her loving care ever so much more. Let us not fail to pray to our Lady daily, especially the rosary which holds so much wealth within it. Happy Feast Day! Monday in Washington, DC is

Take Some Time

Dear Friends, Well the parade may have been held last Sunday in Philadelphia but today (Sunday) is the official day for the “wearin’ o’ the green.” Happy Saint Patrick’s day to one and all. May the intercession of Saint Patrick bring renewed vigor, energy and healing to all of us as we continue on our Lenten journey 2019. This weekend’s Gospel is the Transfiguration of our Lord.

Lent is underway

We have come to the first Sunday of Lent. It is a rather late start this year, often on this date we are several weeks into our Lenten journey. We have available at the Church entrances free copies of the Word Among Us and the “Little Black Book.” Both are resources for utilizing Sacred Scripture daily throughout the holy season of Lent. Elsewhere in our bulletin, you will find a listing of some online or email options to help you journey through this Lent. We also have some copies of Covenant Eyes’ book, Equipping the Family; Safeguarding Children. This is the free resource which we distributed last weekend as part of Safe Haven Sunday. If you were away last weekend, or unable to atte

Safe Haven Sunday

Dear Friends, Today, we join parishes across our Archdiocese in observance of Safe Haven Sunday: Equipping the Family, Safeguarding Children. This is an initiative to help us consider the pervasive presence and use of pornography in our society, and to provide practical resources on how to protect ourselves and our children. This is not an easy or comfortable topic but a necessary one to help us grow chastely respecting the human dignity of ourselves and others. We need to begin with prayer asking our Lord Jesus Christ to cover all of us, our families, loved ones and friends with the protection of His Most Precious Blood against all evil through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary.
