Faith and works

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

To be a Christian is to be in a relationship with a person who is alive, Jesus Christ, true God and true man. It is a relationship of love that gives a decisive orientation to our lives. It is a relationship that is at once personal and communal because by the Incarnation, God assumed human nature, something that we have in common with Him and with every other human being that ever was, is or will be.

By the Incarnation, human nature has been irrevocably united to divine nature and, therefore, everything that is truly human is now an avenue for communion between each and every one of us and God. Furthermore, in the humanity of our brothers and sisters we also see the humanity of Jesus Christ, who is also God. Therefore, by honoring, reverencing and respecting the humanity of others I grow in communion with God too.

The Church will be closed for maintenance from Monday, September 17 at 10 AM through Friday, September 21. Weekday Mass will be celebrated in the chapel located at the corner of Alton Rd. and Barry Street.
La iglesia permanecerá cerrada por trabajos de mantenimiento desde las 10 AM del lunes 17 de septiembre hasta el viernes 21 de septiembre. La Misa diaria se celebrará en la capilla ubicada en la esquina de Alton Rd. Y Barry Street.

  • Pray for the canonization of the Servant of God Enrique Shaw

    Pray for the canonization of the Servant of God Enrique Shaw

    O God, your servant Enrique was a joyful witness of Christian living through his everyday endeavors, with his family, at the workplace, in the corporate world and society at large. Help me to follow in his footsteps in deep communion with you. Glorify him and grant through his intercession the favors requested. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

    Por favor, recen para que el Señor conceda un milagro por su intercesión

    Oh Dios, tu siervo Enrique nos dio un alegre ejemplo de vida cristiana a través de su quehacer cotidiano en la familia, el trabajo, la empresa y la sociedad. Ayúdame a seguir sus pasos con una profunda vida de unión contigo y de apostolado cristiano. Dígnate glorificarlo y concede por su intercesión el favor que te piden. Por Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.

    Padrenuestro, Avemaría, Gloria.
