Posted by Margo Morin on 8/26/20

As a parish, and as a people, we’ve been through a lot in the past few months. Facing the issues of health and safety, of how to care for each other and how to treat each other, it can feel as if we are adrift, unmoored, untethered, unsafe.

Posted by Margo Morin on 8/26/20

As we head into the last days of the summer vacation, I am again reminded of my favorite commercial of all time (61 years and counting). It features a father skipping down the aisle of a Staples store with the music from Andy Williams’ classic, “It’s the Most Wonderful ... Read More »

Digging In

Posted by Margo Morin on 8/06/20

This Summer I’ve been re-reading a series of books I adored when I was young. I have had the first book of the series on my bookshelf for years; I’ve taken that book with me whenever I’ve moved to new homes, and it’s gathered some dust over the years. It ... Read More »

19th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Posted by Steven Antonio on 8/02/20

Missionaries remind us that the Church is bigger than our parish. They remind us that we are all receivers of God’s grace and that it is a gift to us given by God, simply because he loves us.  Scenes in previous Sunday Gospel readings taught us that God’s kingdom is ... Read More »
