Welcome!

 
 

With the recent lifting of most COVID restrictions by the governor, we are happy to announce that parish activities will be beginning to return to normal. 

We invite you to return to celebrating Mass in person!  We do ask that every one be prudent, and if you are experiencing any symptoms or have been recently expose to COVID -19, that you kindly stay home for everyone's safety.  Masks are no longer required for those who have been vaccinated. Face coverings are still strongly encouraged for those who are not vaccinated or have vulnerable conditions.  For those who wish to observe greater social distance, we will continue to have every other pew roped off.  

For the time being, Archbishop Etienne’s suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass will continue.   

Let us pray for one another and encourage one another in faith.  

 

This year’s Annual Catholic Appeal is underway now! Each year, we pause and consider all the great things we can accomplish in the name of Jesus. We are seeking everyone's participation. Please make a pledge today at the link below, and if you are unable to pledge, please pray for the efforts of the Appeal. Thank you!

The Bible is one of God's greatest gifts to humanity. It is a chosen instrument through which God speaks to each of us personally because "the word of God is alive and active" (Hebrews 4:12). When we spend time with the Sacred Scriptures, we ready ourselves to encounter our loving God.

Father Poje welcomes all to join him for Bible and Beverages, a scripture study where we will spend time learning about this gift. We will dive into the five major parts of the Bible, with select readings from the Pentateuch, the Prophets, the Wisdom literature, the Gospels, and the Epistles. We will learn to use techniques that Vatican II encouraged to "carefully investigate what meaning the sacred writers really intended, and what God wanted to manifest by means of their words". Please bring your Bible, friends, and family to this Scripture study that you won't soon forget. We look forward to having you!

FROM THE DESK OF THE PASTOR

July 25, 2021

Dear Friends in Christ,

The past year and a half have been challenging and exhausting for us all.  We all want to be over and done with it.  On the one hand, we are hopeful, with most restrictions lifted and the joy of being able to reconnect.  On the other, we our cautious with the new variants on the rise; we will probably need a little more endurance. Like the Israelites wandering in the desert, our time in the desert may be more than anticipated before we entered in the promised land. Most of all, we want it to all be over and done with.  Yet the Lord never abandons us.  He is always teaching us, even in tribulation. Perhaps the best, and most trying lesson of these past months has been the importance of the Eucharist to our life as Catholics - of never taking for granted this gift, our ability to celebrate it, our ability to receive Him.  Perhaps God gave us this time in the desert to renew our hunger for Him, and the food of his Body and Blood which only he can give.

These next few weeks we are reading from the Bread of Life discourses in St John’s Gospel.  We begin this Sunday by hearing how the Lord Jesus fed the 5000 with a few loaves and fish.  Next week he reveals himself as the Bread of Life. We all hunger. We all long for that which can sustain us and give us life. We all desire that which will fulfill the deepest yearnings of the heart. The reading from Exodus next Sunday reminds us of the Israelites who had been freed from slavery, yet now were hungry in the desert.   They remember a time when they were slaves but had enough to eat. Here they grumble against the Lord.  Yet the Lord hears their cry and provides a source of food, Manna – the bread from heaven.  This source of food remained with them until they reached the promised land.

In these Gospel passages, Our Blessed Lord challenges his hearers and us not to look for food which simply satisfies our material desires, but to set our hearts on food which will not perish. That which will endure for eternal life. He then reveals that he is this precious food: “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”  These words might challenge us to reflect upon what   we work for and what we strive for in life.  What do we place ahead of Jesus and the communion with him in the Holy Eucharist?  What should come first on Sunday morning. What will really satisfy the longings of our heart?

May the hunger of our heart for the Eucharist, leads us to be set ablaze by the love of the Lord!  Blessings on your week!

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Johnson
