  • Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Trust in the Lord

    Three times in the Gospel today, our Lord tells the disciples that they should not be afraid. This phrase and related variants occur in Scripture more than any other phrase. We all struggle with worrying and being fearful about many aspects of our lives, but Christ reminds us to trust in Him and His abundant love for us. We have been adopted as sons and daughters of God by the death and Resurrection of Christ. We can live a new life in hopeful confidence that God will provide for our needs and care for us as the loving Father who desires “all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).

    Prayer of Spiritual Communion

    My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

    Requirements to attend Mass

    website at or call the parish office. • Wear a mask. • Use hand sanitizer before entering Church. • Practice social distancing by maintaining 6 ft. distance

    from others. • When parking, leave an empty parking space between


    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads of the parish. To- day we honor fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. The example, love and leader- ship of a father is crucial to children of every age. June 30th is the end of our fiscal year. I want to con- gratulate you, as parishioners, for your continued financial con- tributions to the parish. Know that we anticipate a deficit for next year because of the inability to have major fundraisers as a result of COVID-19. This could be in excess of $75,000. Whatever we have left from this fiscal year will surely help out with next year’s fiscal budget. Keep up the good work! If you have been waiting to make your contributions until we are back to the way things used to be, now would be a good time to catch up. It would certainly help us as we plan for the next fiscal year. Let us pray for each other this week.

    Stewardship Awareness “Everyone who acknowledges Me before others, I will acknowledge before My heavenly Father.” Matthew 10:32 Would others know that you are Catholic by the way you act and speak? Do you share your Catholic faith with others? Do you defend your Catholic faith when the situation arises or do you remain si- lent? Do you pray in public before meals? Pray for the strength and courage to be a joyful witness of our Catholic faith when the opportu- nity presents itself. Let us become the radiant light and bold witness that we are called to be!
