    Celebration of Archbishop Lawrence Saldanha's 60th Ordination Anniversary

     
    From The Pastor's Desk

    We have been very blessed to receive from the Holy Land the relics of two Saints which have been added to our reliquary cabinet along with our relic of Padre Pio in the front of the church.

    St. Mariam Baouardy
    was a Discalced Carmelite nun of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church. Born to Greek Catholic parents from Syria and Lebanon, she was known for her service to the poor. In addition, she became a Christian mystic who suffered the stigmata.

    She was canonized in 2015 by Pope Francis.

    St. Marie Alphonsine
    Marie-Alphonsine Danil Ghattas was a Palestinian Christian nun who founded the Congregation of the Rosary Sisters of Jerusalem, the first Palestinian congregation.

    She was canonized in 2015 by Pope Francis.

     
    Our Lady of Fatima Visitation

    The 2020 sign-up sheet for Our Lady of Fatima’s visitation for a week in your home is now available in the binder at the back of the church.

    Instruction prayer on her arrival and departure is included in the prayer bag. Let us pray to Our Blessed Mother for protection, guidance, peace in our family and the whole world.

    You will receive and return her on Saturday at the 5pm mass.
