As we confront major and tragic failings on the part of certain bishops and priests, let us pray for healing for the victims, healing for all members of the Church, and justice and true reform. May the members of the Church, in particular bishops and priests, pursue the holiness necessary to remain faithful to Christ and restablish trust among those who have been betrayed by modern day Judas-es. (For further reflections, please click here for my homily from the Ninteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time, 12 August 2018).
To that end, please join us for a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration in Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm in church. You are also invited to join me in observing this day as a day of penance for the same intentions.
There will be a similar time of prayer at St. Joseph on Monday, August 22, 2018 from 7:00 - 8:00 pm and St. Ann starting at 6:30 pm.

Sincerley yours in Christ,
P.S. We hope you will find our new website to be a fresh look and easier to use, but please be patient as we get the kinks worked out. If you notice any problems, then please email email@example.com.
We invite you to visit St. Mary's Church for Mass or any of our other events.
I sincerely hope that here at St. Mary's you will meet not just new friends, but disciples of Jesus with whom you can grow in your faith and friendship with Jesus Himself.
May God bless you and keep you in His care, and may His Blessed Mother intercede for you.
