 Our Parish

 
Dear Parishioners,

 

 We are thankful to God for the imminent return to normal.  There will be many questions as we make this transition.  We ask for your patience as we work through this together. 

The Mass audio will be played through the exterior speakers of the church. You can sit anywhere within 100 feet of the church and still clearly hear the Mass, so feel free to bring some lawn chairs and celebrate Mass outside.

  • The Mass audio will also be broadcast around the church on 105.1 FM. 
    • The reception in the parking lot is good overall, but there are spots where it is not. Test your reception as you find your parking space. We ask that the front parking spaces be reserved for those who are attending Mass from their car.

Please call or email if you have any questions.

 All questions, concerns, suggestions are welcome.

Your Servant in Christ,

Fr. Staples

We know the story: Mary had brought her concern to Jesus, “They have no wine.” Jesus responded, “Woman, how does your concern affect me?” Evidently, her concern did affect Jesus because a few minutes later Jesus turned about 150 gallons of water into the finest of wines! This was Jesus’ first miracle; what was the result? The Gospel says his glory was revealed and “his disciples began to believe in him” (vs. 11).

Of course, volumes have been written on the significance of Jesus’ first miracle and there are numerous ramifications. Here, I would like to consider a simple yet important aspect of Jesus’ first miracle: it inspired joy…... Continue reading by clicking here.
