Priesthood Anniversaries

For the Son of Man has come not to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45)

Every May and June priests celebrate their anniversaries to the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Please remember our priests and pray for them always but especially on their anniversaries to the priesthood!

Gospel: John 20:1-9

Jesus is Lord, He is the one that makes the sacraments, not the Church, the Church receives them, and celebrates them….”

Gospel: John 13:1-15

Homily for the 3rd Sunday in Lent (OF 03/07/21)

“..Our Lord knows everything about us, the good and the bad, and He loves us, He loves us as we are, in fact, He loves us so much that He won’t leave us, as we are, that’s why He comes to save us. He loves this woman in spite of her sins, not because of them but in spite of them, there is more to her than her sins….”
