A message from Bishop Burbidge

The weekend mass will be streamed ON YOUTUBE <- Click the link to open the page. The stream will be live for a 5 PM mass as well as recorded for those who want to watch it on Sunday.

A Daily Reflection:
Today we celebrate the Memorial of St. Alphonsus Liguori. He taught that the Eucharist was not a prize for the perfect but as medicine and nourishment for the weak. He worked and preached primarily to the poor, those who were illiterate and the sick, in other words to those who are forgotten even today by society. People on the right and left say they are concerned but they simply create programs that fit there way of thinking and do nothing for the people they are trying to help. we as a people of faith need to be like this saint and John the Baptist and promote true holiness only comes when we turn from sin and embrace the grace of God. we need to remember only the truth can set us free and it is not the truth that politicians on both sides of the aisle want you to believe but the truth that only in God will our souls find rest. This will be my last post until I come back from vacation later in the month.
In God's love and peace.

Fr. Mike

A Prayer to Jesus for Healing and Guidance

Jesus, Son of God,
you were sent by the Father
to bear our weakness;
be with us in this time of crisis.
Merciful Savior,
heal and comfort the sick,
so that, with heath restores,
they may give you praise.
Divine Physician,
accompany our caregivers
so that, serving with patience,
they may heal wisely.
Eternal Wisdom,
guide our leaders
so that, seeking remedies,
they may follow your light.
Christ, the Anointed,
protect us in body and spirit,
so that, freed from harm,
we may be delivered from all affliction.
Who lives and reign with God with Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
