Adult Confirmation Sessions - The Adult Confirmation Preparation classes are for parishioners who are out of high school and who have been baptized and received First Communion, but who have yet to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation strengthens the graces we receive in Baptism and fills us with an even greater share of the Holy Spirit. This Sacrament completes our initiation into the Catholic Church.  Our parish will be hosting an adult confirmation session beginning on September 10th.  All sessions will be lead by Deacon Jerome Bettencourt.

Justice Corner

The Justice Corner is devoted to the subject of Justice and will cover, over time, these topics:  what is meant by Justice, especially Social Justice; the Catholic principles of Justice; and critical Justice issues that are seriously impacting our community, our nation and the world. We will also provide some suggestions for action on these issues that readers may wish to consider taking.

Examples of Catholic principles of Justice to be addressed are these: the God-given dignity of every individual, and the implications of this for each of us; our responsibility to practice Justice; and Jesus’ call to us to care for the poor, and for the integrity of all of His Father’s creation. Read More

Vatican News

XX Sunday - August 20, 2017

Is 56: 1, 6-7 : Rom 11: 13-15, 29-32:  Mt 15: 21-28

Anecdote: “Never give up!”:  Many years ago in Illinois, a young man with six months schooling to his credit ran for an office in the legislature. As might have been expected, he was beaten. Next, he entered business but failed in that too, and spent the next seventeen years paying the debts of his worthless partner. He fell in love with a charming lady, they became engaged – and she died. He had a nervous breakdown. He ran for Congress and was defeated. He then tried to obtain an appointment to the U.S. Land Office but didn’t succeed. He became a candidate for the Vice-Presidency and lost. Two years later he was defeated in a race for the Senate. He ran for President and finally was elected. That man was Abraham Lincoln.     Today’s Gospel episode of healing gives us the same message in a more powerful way.

Church leaders oppose Bolivian law stripping protection for native lands

In a statement August 11, the Pan-Amazonian Church Network expressed its "deep concern and indignation" about a new law that strips protection from a national park and indigenous territory, and said it would mean "the gradual destruction of vital natural reserves." The network said the new law "could represent the ethnocide of the Chiman people ... and cause the eventual disappearance of the vital cultural customs" of the indigenous people living in the area.
