Dear Parishioners & Friends!

It is a matter of joy that we can gather again for Mass in the Church with our physical presence. You might have noticed that we have to put up with many restrictions. It is for our own safety and the safety of others. So be patient. As I mentioned in my letter, the Bishop has exempted us from Sunday obligation till June 30. So feel free to pray from home if you are in the risk category or in any way uncomfortable with physical attendance. The 11:30 am mass every Sunday is Facebook-live streamed. You can follow it from the safety of your home.

All of us have received the Holy Spirit through Baptism and Confirmation. Pentecost reminds us about the fact that the Holy Spirit lives in us. As St Paul reminds us “remember you are the temple of the Holy Spirit” and again “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit living in you”. Pentecost is considered to be the Birthday of the Church. Today in a special way, let us remember and pray to the Holy Spirit. Let us listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and live accordingly. Our prayer today should be: “Come O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your Love”.

With Prayers and Blessings

Fr. Tom

Sunday Reflection

The Ascension of the Lord

Are you at this time going to restore the kingdom of Israel?

Amazing. After three years of traveling with Jesus, after seeing him arrested, tried, and crucified, after seeing him risen from the dead, even after forty days of Holy Spirit inspired instruction—after all this, the apostles are still confused. They ask Jesus if he is now going to kick out the Romans and restore Israel to its former glory. They just didn’t get it yet.

Still, we can ask a similar question today: "Lord, when are you going to come and set everything right again? What about all the wars and poverty and abortions?" In response, Jesus tells the apostles, and us: Yes, I came to establish the kingdom of
God---but I want you to help build it.

It's only right, on today of all days, to praise Jesus with "a blare of trumpets" But in the midst of our celebrating, Jesus' words still reverberate: "You will be my witnesses"."Go,... and make disciples of all nations".

Jesus may have ascended, but the work of his kingdom continues—and he has placed that work in our hands. That's why he promised us the Holy Spirit. We need the Spirit so that our attempts to preach the gospel, take a stand against sin, and lift up the poor are filled with God's own grace and love.

It's not as hard as you might think. Preaching the gospel can be as simple as offering to pray for a struggling friend or sharing with a neighbor about how God helped you during a tough situation. Lifting up the poor can mean a weekly visit to a nursing home or increasing your donations to the poor box. Taking a stand against sin can mean praying for people’s conversion or trying to establish a more peaceful environment in the home.

Yes, Jesus is going to restore his kingdom. And he's going to use you to do it.

 

“Come, Holy Spirit, and fill our hearts. Empower us to build a kingdom worthy of the risen Lord!”

The COVID-19 virus forces us and our parishioners to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and "stay-at-home" orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people.

Praying together, praying apart printable pdf



  • Part I: Prayers of Comfort, Hope, and Healing: These texts can be prayed by individuals, families, or other groups

  • Part II: Lucernarium for Healing: Lucernarium, or "service of light," grows out of the tradition in the early church of lighting lamps for evening prayer. This celebration of light rejoices in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Light no darkness can overcome.

  • Part III: Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist: The rosary is a prayer pathway that invites us to meditate on significant events in Jesus' life. The Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist focuses on the healing mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, allowing us to enter more fully into the healing experiences within Luke's Gospel. Begin each decade by reading the corresponding Scripture passage.

  • Part IV: At-Home Service of Prayer when Someone Has Died: One of the realities of social distancing is the inability to gather as a community for wakes, funerals, and other memorial services when someone has died. This service of prayer is intended to give people a way to pray in their own homes as they grieve the loss of a loved one.
