A Message from Fr. Walter

ELEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

 Farming is a matter of hard work and patient faith: all the farmer can do is plant the seed and nurture it along with water and care; God’s unseen hand in creation transforms the tiny seed into a great harvest. Today’s Gospel parables of the seed that grows by itself and the mustard seed, then, are calls to patience, hope and readiness. The mustard seed – that tiny speck containing the chemical energy to create the great tree- is a natural parable for the greatness that God raises up from small beginnings. The faith of the Sower is centered in a spirit of trust and gratitude that God makes all things work together for good.

Christ calls us to embrace the faith of the gospel farmer and the hope of the mustard seed: to be willing to plant whatever “seeds” of gospel hope and compassion that we possess, wherever and whenever we can, in  the certain knowledge that it will, in some way, result in a harvest of God’s life and love. We may never realize what that seed has harvested, but it is from such seeds that the reign of God will flourish.

Eucharistic Adoration

Every Wednesday, from 7AM-6PM 

O Come Let Us Adore Him!!

The Catechism quotes Pope John Paul II: "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease." (CCC, 1380)

Consider signing up for an hour to pray

before the Blessed Sacrament. 

Adorers are always welcome to stop in and spend time with our Lord.

Sunday Obligation

The obligation to attend Holy Mass on the Lord’s Day is a sacred one. Anyone who is frail or at risk due to advanced age or medical conditions is always excused from this obligation.

However, those who are healthy and not at great risk, the presumption of the faithful should be that, unless they are at an enhanced risk, sick, or caring for others who are at risk or sick, are obligated to attend Sunday Mass.
