10th Sunday in Ordinary Time

06-09-2024Pastor's LetterFr. Daniel Cruz

Happy Sunday!

After celebrating the amazing feasts after Pentecost, we adjust to ordinary time, meaning no particular aspect of the mystery of Christ is celebrated, but rather the mystery of Christ is honored in its fullness, especially on Sundays. This is the trajectory of our week and most important, our fruit and source of our faith.

The weekend of June 1-2, 2024, Father Joseph Tuscan, OFM Cap. will be visiting our parish on behalf of Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS). Fr. Tuscan was born in Columbus, OH and entered Borromeo College Seminary in 1986 where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Sciences. In 1993, he professed his Perpetual vows as a Capuchin Franciscan friar and earned his master’s degree in Theology and ordained to the priesthood in 1997.


Pentecost Sunday

Happy Pentecost!

“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of all believers and set them on fire with your love. Though they spoke many different languages, you united the nations in professing the same faith!” A beautiful antiphon from first vespers of Pentecost help us reflect on the many nations present when the apostles received an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Those same gifts allowed the apostles to go out and communicate the message of the Risen Lord!


7th Sunday of Easter

Happy Mother’s Day!

On this second Sunday in May, we observe a short day to honor and pray for our mothers. I love the tradition of processing into the church with our Blessed Mother Mary and allowing our own mothers of the parish to follow her and ask for her intercession. Today is special because this is a time to give thanks to God for the gift of human life.


6th Sunday of Easter

Happy Easter!

On May 3rd we celebrated the First Holy Communion and Confirmation Mass with so many of our children here at the parish. Many years of preparation and growing in the faith are a necessary completion of baptismal grace. “For by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Catechism 1285)


5th Sunday of Easter

Happy Easter!

Hope and pray the Easter season is going well in contemplating the Resurrection of our Lord! This Wednesday is the memorial of Saint Joseph the Worker and on this day we will have the May Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary after our 8:30 am daily Mass. There will be a prayer of blessing and crowning of beautiful blossoms representing Mary's beauty and virtue. To further add to our love for mother, the Our Lady of Grace statue will be present throughout the month of May near the sanctuary.


4th Sunday of Easter

Recently I was with my little dog Libby at a retreat center in the Arizona desert. I sat in a chair near a ravine filled with shrubs. Unbeknownst to me, Libby wandered down there and disappeared. Suddenly an animal’s wild shriek erupted from the area. Without thinking, I bolted down into the ravine fully expecting to see coyotes, javelinas, or rattlesnakes. I didn’t care. I desperately wanted to get Libby out of there, without any self-regard. Before I could face whatever danger lay hidden, my dog blissfully trotted out from an entirely different area, utterly unaware that I had (quite heroically) just placed my life on the line.
