Announcements & Events


“May this Lent be a season of “less is more”.  As you free yourself from whatever keeps you from following Jesus, may you find more of all that you truly need: grace, forgiveness, mercy, compassion. And may you share these gifts with others. As you do, you will surely also discover the grace of the Spirit of God within you, empowering you to act as a person of Christ in the world.”   -Catholic Life and Faith, 2018

“Que esta Cuaresma sea una temporada de “menos es más”: al liberarte de lo que te impide seguir a Jesús puedes encontrar más de todo lo que realmente necesitas: gracia, perdón, misericordia, compasión. Y puedes compartir estos regalos con otros. Al hacerlo, seguramente también descubrirás la gracia del Espíritu de Dios dentro de ti, dándote la capacidad de actuar como una persona de Cristo en el mundo.”  -Catholic Life and Faith, 2018
