Announcements
Come to Me!
During Holy Week, a Blessed Sacrament Chapel was created for improved accessibility for private prayer (there are no steps). It contains two kneelers and chairs. Outside the chapel is a stand of candles to light for personal intentions. Above the stand is a plaque of Jesus and the children with the words: “Let the children come to me.” This plaque hung in Little Flower School until its closing in 2008. Recently it hung in the one of the parish meeting rooms. How appropriate for it to find a home outside the Chapel to remind us we are all children of God. As we gather in the church for the Mass, let us also go to the Lord in the chapel for private prayer. 
   If you haven’t seen the chapel, stop by for a visit and feel the closeness of the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Learn how to have meaningful conversations about things that matter and take the pledge to support the campaign for more civilized dialogue about the issues.

Easter 2016


THANK YOU to all of the Liturgical ministers whose presence added to the joyful celebration of Easter.

THANKS ALSO to all of you who grace our parish weekly and provide spiritual and financial support. We are a truly blessed community of faith.
As we gather to celebrate the victory of our Risen Lord and go forth to continue to witness this victory with family and friends, may we truly be the living Body of Christ for each other.

Year of Mercy

On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis officially proclaimed the opening of the “Year of Mercy”. The logo and the motto together provide a fitting summary of what the Jubilee Year is all about. The motto Merciful Like the Father (taken from the Gospel of Luke, 6:36) serves as an invitation to follow the merciful example of the Father who asks us not to judge or condemn but to forgive and to give love and forgiveness without measure (cfr. Lk 6:37-38). 

   The logo – the work of Jesuit Father Marko I. Rupnik – presents a small summa theologiae of the theme of mercy. In fact, it represents an image quite important to the early Church: that of the Son having taken upon his shoulders the lost soul demonstrating that it is the love of Christ that brings to completion the mystery of his incarnation culminating in redemption. The logo has been designed in such a way so as to express the profound way in which the Good Shepherd touches the flesh of humanity and does so with a love with the power to change one’s life. One particular feature worthy of note is that while the Good Shepherd, in his great mercy, takes humanity upon himself, his eyes are merged with those of man. Christ sees with the eyes of Adam, and Adam with the eyes of Christ. Every person discovers in Christ, the new Adam, one’s own humanity and the future that lies ahead, contemplating, in his gaze, the love of the Father.
 
  The scene is captured within the so called mandorla (the shape of an almond), a figure quite important in early and medieval iconography, for it calls to mind the two natures of Christ, divine and human. The three concentric ovals, with colors progressively lighter as we move outward, suggest the movement of Christ who carries humanity out of the night of sin and death. Conversely, the depth of the darker color suggests the impenetrability of the love of the Father who forgives all.
