Act of Spiritual Communion

By Debbie Noland | March 20, 2020

The Church encourages frequent, even daily, Holy Communion but, if at any time we cannot go to Mass in or out of this season of the coronavirus, we can still unite ourselves to the Eucharist through making a spiritual Communion.

Second Sunday of Lent, Year A, Matthew 17:1-9

By Monsignor Makarewicz | March 10, 2020

The three pillars of our Lenten discipline are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Last Sunday we heard about fasting and sacrifice in the story of Christ’s fasting in the desert after which he was tempted by Satan. Next Sunday we will hear about the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus invites her to…

By Monsignor Makarewicz | February 26, 2020

Presentation of Our Lord

By Monsignor Makarewicz | February 4, 2020

Work schedules, electric clocks and watches, printed calendars, modern astronomy and geography, and the ease of modern travel and relocation are wonderful things. All of these increase our capacity to work and live efficiently. However, they come at a great cost. Time and activity are measured in ever shrinking intervals. Our lives are dissected every…

Mass Offerings
