God chose Mary, the Immaculate Conception, to be our “model of holiness” (Preface) by preserving her entirely from original sin, making her all-pure and all-holy.
Happy New Year Everyone,
The following is a reprint of the Grand Annual Appeal letter that Fr. Hurley recently mailed out to the parish.
The Catholic Church in the Unit ed States will celebrate the 45th annual National Vocations Awareness Week from November 7—13, 2021.
Greetings everyone on this 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Greetings on this twenty-ninth week in Ordinary Time.
The Peace of the Lord be with You.
May the Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.
“Ephphatha!” — that is, “Be open!” Mt 7: 34. What a mysterious word and greeting! I hope this is vaguely familiar to most folks.
