    Marian Veneration: Firm Foundations by Francis Cardinal Arinze was written both for those devoted to the Blessed Mother and those who do not yet know her. It provides a solid foundation for Marian veneration that can benefit all Christians, regardless of their church affiliation.
    September is the month devoted to the Sorrowful Mother. Visit the shop today for our selection of books and other items to help meditate on our Mother’s example of redemptive suffering.

    2017 is the Centennial of Our Lady of Fatima! There is a variety of products available until October to help spread the message of repentance.

  • message from the rector

    September 17, 2017

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    This weekend, we are conducting our elections for the two new members for the Parish Pastoral Council.  The profiles of our six candidates remain available in the Baptistery and in the Scavi to assist you in making your choices.

    In coming days, we will be having our first meetings of our Pastoral Council and of our Finance Council who will be discussing parish life in the coming months.  Please do not hesitate to speak with any member of our Councils with respect to their particular areas of responsibility.  ....
    In this era when conflict, and violent actions, occur in the name of religion, it is important for us to continue to be aware of the people of faith who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ but are in our midst.  In the coming week, on Wednesday September 20, people of the Jewish faith will be celebrating at sundown the beginning of the Jewish New Year, Rosh HaShannah.  It is good for us to remember that we acknowledge, in the First Eucharistic Prayer (the Roman Canon) “… the sacrifice of Abraham, our father in faith…”, the roots of faith which we share with the Jews.
    - Fr. Kevin
