12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Parishioner,

     We had our last great feast of the spring on Friday, the Feast of the Sacred Heart.  I thank all who made our celebration of the Easter Season and the other Feast Days so special. Now we move into Ordinary Time.

     Ordinary Time, of course, makes up the majority of the Liturgical Calendar.  The color that the priest wears is green.  Green is a color that…

Homily Notes Feast of Corpus Christi

Feast of Corpus Christi, 6/18/17 (We Remember) 


The Most Holy Body And Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

Dear Parishioner,

     On this Sunday of the church year we reflect on the Eucharist.  The Eucharist is not a thing it is a sacred action that we engage in together.  It is always good to reflect on our attitude toward the central sacrament of our religion.

     I realize that as I write to you that I am once again “preaching to the choir.”  My biggest concern is ever pastor’s worry. …

Feast of the Holy Trinity

Feast of the Holy Trinity (What is the Name of our God?) 


The Most Holy Trinity

Dear Parishioner,

     I am trying to keep you posted on the ongoing work on our Campus.  You will notice that the lifts are gone and we have finished the tuck pointing on our Bell Tower.  Because of this repair the structure is sealed against water seeping in through the walls of the tower.  We have run into other problems, however.

     As you might imagine it is hard to get up…

Homily Notes Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday/Are We Brave Enough to Move with the Spirit?

            We might be surprised that the full story about the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost told only in the Acts of the Apostles.  The Spirit comes to the Apostles forty days after Easter.  After the Spirit comes, the Apostles go out to preach in the streets, but what are they preaching about? What makes them so excited?


Pentecost Sunday

Dear Parishioner,

     The Lord works in mysterious ways. How often we have heard this.  Today we commemorate what is often referred to as the birthday of the church.  We observe the Feast of Pentecost which is the last day of the Easter Season.  Where have the last 50 days gone?  Easter Season is full of wonderful family events from Baptisms to graduations to Confirmations.  Most of these…

Homily Notes Feast of Ascension May 28

Feast of the Ascension/Jesus is Not the Only One Who Will be Lifted-up 


The Ascension of The Lord

Dear Parishioner,

     This past week I commemorated two milestones in my life.  My birthday was on the 25th of May and my ordination anniversary is on the 29th of May.  I thank all those who stopped by to wish me well after our Saturday night Mass.  This was the 35th anniversary of my ordination.  I was not planning to have an observance this year, but it…
