It is with great joy that I am announcing that we will be offering more time for Adoration before Our Lord present in the Eucharist. Starting Monday February 22nd (the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter), the “Day Chapel” will now be our “Adoration Chapel”.  It is being set up to accommodate social distancing.  The goal is having Exposition available from Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.  These are the hours that the Church is currently open. 

In order to do this, we need to have at least TWO persons present before the Blessed Sacrament at all times.   Therefore, I am asking parishioners and our many different parish groups to commit to taking a weekly hour or block of time in order to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for the Church, the world, and our parish.  I would like the following groups to take the lead in this effort and cover some of the hours, but to also invite other parishioners to join in this effort:

The Knights of Columbus, Respect Life Group, Youth Group, Walking with Purpose, Men’s group, Community Services and anyone else.

Also, we will be participating in the Diocesan wide push of 40 DAYS OF ADORATION for Lent.  Our day is Monday March 22nd.  On this day, Adoration will be in the Church from 9am to 9pm.  Joe Rayen will be handling the coordination of the adorers and I would like to thank him for his efforts.  Let us take the opportunity to ENCOUNTER our Lord in the greatest gift that He has given us – Himself in the Eucharist!

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, All Praise and All Thanksgiving be every moment thine!

Del Pastor,

Es con gran alegría que estoy anunciando , que ofreceremos más tiempo para la Adoración ante Nuestro Señor presente en la Eucaristía. A partir del lunes 22 de febrero (la fiesta de la Cátedra de San Pedro), la "Capilla del Día" será ahora nuestra "Capilla de Adoración". Se está preparando para dar cabida al distanciamiento social. El objetivo es tener Exposición disponible de lunes a viernes de 9am a 4pm. Estas son las horas que la Iglesia está abierta actualmente.

Para ello, necesitamos tener al menos DOSpersonas presentes ante el Santísimo Sacramento en todo momento. Por lo tanto, pido a los feligreses y a nuestros diferentes grupos parroquiales que se comprometan a tomar una hora o un bloque de tiempo semanales para orar ante el Santísimo Sacramento por la Iglesia, el mundo y nuestra parroquia. Me gustaría que los siguientes grupos tomaran la iniciativa en este esfuerzo y cubrieran algunas de las horas, pero también invitaran a otros feligreses a unirse a este esfuerzo:Los Caballeros de Colón, el grupo de respeto a l vida, el grupo de jovenes, caminar con proposito, grupo de hombres, servicios comunitarios y cualquier otra persona.

Además, participaremos en el amplio impulso diocesano de 40 días de adoración para la Cuaresma. Nuestro día es lunes 22demarzo. En este día, la Adoración será en la Iglesiade 9 a. m. a 9 p. m. Joe Rayen se encargará de la coordinación de los adoradores y me gustaría agradecerle sus esfuerzos. ¡Aprovechemos la oportunidad de ENCONTRAR a nuestro Señor en el don más grande que nos ha dado: él mismo en la Eucaristía!

¡Oh Sacramento Santísimo, Oh Sacramento Divino, Todos alabanza y toda Acción de Gracias sea cada momento contigo!

P. Tuttle

Excerpt from the Article “Immigration Idealism’


Pope Francis … has also said that prudence must govern migration policy. ‘This means you have to ask yourself first: How much space do I have? Second: you have to remember it’s not just about taking them in, but also integrating them’ he said in 2017. He also said that ‘Europe [and the United States] will be able to confront the problems associated with immigration only if it is capable of clearly asserting its own cultural identity’ [underlying added]. These statements tend to be overlooked by the people who eagerly repeat … paeans to openness, but they illustrate an important truth: Sooner or later, even the most idealistic calls to welcome migrants [sic] must contend with hard reality.Read more
