Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As we enter into the final weeks of Lent and then go into Easter, we are working to provide a safe preparation with overflow and social distancing. We are finalizing the minor details of the Easter Schedule and will publish it next week. The Holy Week Schedule is below. Stay tuned.

God bless, Fr. Steven

Tower of David

Towers are for two purposes, either strength and defense, or for beauty and ornament. In this emblem Our Lady is represented as a tower, the Tower of David. Towers may be also considered under two aspects—

first in the primitive sense of the word, as a stronghold of defense and security in war. To address Our Lady as "Tower of David" really means, "Our Lady of Soldiers" or "Our Lady of Victories." This title is no doubt inspired by that text of the Canticle of Canticles (Song of Solomon 4:4): "Thy neck is as the tower of David;

a thousand bucklers (small round shields) hang upon it, all the armor of valiant men.” We do not need to be

told what a great war it is, in which we need the defense of this strong tower, the Mother of God. It is the

great battle for our salvation; between eternal bliss and damnation, heaven and hell.

We are very grateful that even during these difficult times, our parishioners have raised over $25,000 toward our 2021 Catholic Appeal goal of $56,634. Our heartfelt thanks to all who have helped make our campaign a success so far. Whether you are attending Mass in person or watching from home, I invite you to join us in supporting the Catholic Appeal.

We recognize that many of you may be navigating your own financial challenges, but ask for your prayerful consideration of a gift to the 2021 Catholic Appeal at whatever level is comfortable for you.

Every gift, regardless of size, is meaningful and can make an impact. Your participation of the Appeal is very much appreciated by our parish and the thousands that are served through the Archdiocesan Central Ministries.

There are many ways you can donate. We have envelopes in the back of the church, you can go on line to or you can scan the QR code above. To scan the QR code, put your phone in camera mode, put the square over the QR code and the Catholic Appeal donate page will pop up.

Thank you for your generosity! May God bless you and your loved ones.

El tiempo de Cuaresma es un tiempo fuerte que nos invita a la conversión en preparación para la Pascua del Señor, la fiesta mas grande de nuestra fe. La confesión se seguira ofreciendo los:

O puede llamar a la oficina para hacer una cita con un sacerdote.

EFECTOS DE LA CONFESIÓN -La reconciliación con Dios por la que el penitente recupera la gracia.

-La reconciliación con la iglesia, con los hermanos y hermanas y aquellos que te rodean -La remisión de la pena eterna contraída por los pecados mortales.

-La remisión, al menos en parte, de las penas temporales, consecuencia del pecado.

-La paz y la serenidad de la conciencia y el consuelo espiritual.


Cada viernes, a las 7:00pm, nos reuniremos en la capilla para contemplar los misterios salvífi- cos de Nuestro Señor, en su Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección.

¡La Cuaresma termina muy rápida, no falte!

La conmemoración de la entrada del Señor en Jerusalén, según la costumbre anti- gua, se celebra con una procesión solemne, en la que los fieles hacen el canto y el gesto imitando a los niños hebreos que salieron a recibir al Señor cantando

“Hosanna”. Las palmas o ramas son bendecidas para que puedan ser llevadas en

la procesión.

Grupo de Oração

Sextas-Feira 19:30h na igreja superior . Dízimo

O Dizimista que é fiel no seu Dízimo sente aquela alegria e satisfação interior do dever cumprido e segue em frente com passos firmes na sua caminhada de fé. Digam o que disserem, pensem o que pensa- rem – ninguém lhe pode tirar a sua agradável convicção de sentir-se pleno, útil e valorizado – não neces- sariamente pelos homens – mas pelo próprio Deus – origem e destino de todo o bem. Para a paróquia o dizimista é indispensável e para o dizimista consciente, o Dízimo também é indispensável.
