WORSHIP
  • "Mark does not tell us the "many things" that Jesus taught the vast crowd, but we do know the lesson he taught the Twelve. He taught them what their priorities should be. Tired and hungry, they hoped to get some rest away from the townsfolk, some of them they may have just visited when Jesus sent them out two by two. But their plans were changed in an instant, for Jesus' heart was moved to pity. Compassion caused them to turn their attention away from themselves and their need for food and rest so they could attend to strangers in need of healing and guidance. Lesson learned." Pastoral Patterns
  • All day time Masses are being celebrated in the Multi-Purpose Room in the School due to the construction schedule for the roof/window project.
  • Adoration: Please note that Adoration will now be in the Mother's Chapel each Friday from 8:30am-10:00pm not in the main church.
*The 9:30am Sunday mass can still be streamed at home. Please note: we may experience technical difficulties at times with our connection to the livestream, The Mass will be recorded and posted later the same day so do please check back.
