MOTHERS DAY

BEST WISHES TO ALL OUR BELOVED  MOTHERS.
May God bless you all, and may the Blessed Virgin Mary; Mother of our Lord Jesus  protect you always.

The Second Sunday of May (11) is celebrated as MOTHERS’ DAY. In our Parish, a NOVENA of (nine) Holy Masses will be celebrated for the Intentions of our Mothers (living or dead). Our Mothers  deserve our Love, Honor and Respect. We pray for them during Holy Masses on May 11: at 8.30AM & 12.30PM; May 12 at 6.00PM, May 13 at 7.30PM, May 14 at 6.00PM, May 16 at 8.00AM, May 17 at 10.00AM & 5.00PM & May 18 at 10.30AM. Special Memorial Books for our Mothers, living or deceased, will be placed in our Church.  A letter with information about the Novena of Holy Masses will be sent to all our Parishioners by mail. Additional forms will be also available in our Church.


91st  ANNIVERSARY OF FATIMA APPARITION 

Every year from May to October in many Catholic Parishes around the world Catholics celebrate the anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady to three Portuguese children: Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia. We plan to celebrate Fatima Services in our Church every month with Holy Mass, the Rosary in

Sunday Scripture
(I:Gen 11:1-9; II: Rom 8:22-27; Gospel: John: 7:37-39)

                    Today we celebrate the solemnity of Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit came upon the Church. Today we celebrate Pentecost, the day when the outpouring  of the Holy Spirit transformed a group of frightened, confused disciples into  a strong, dedicated community-the Church. Through the power of the Holy Spirit they began boldly preaching the Good News to people of all languages, and making disciples in all nations, as Jesus had instructed.

                       The Holy Spirit came upon the Church at Pentecost. We hear about this in today’s first reading. With the Holy Spirit enabling them, the disciples preached boldly, speaking so that all could understand them. The second reading speaks of the divinity of the Holy Spirit. In the Gospel, the Risen Jesus imparted the Holy Spirit to his disciples.
