Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord
“As he blessed them he parted from them …”
Masses at 7:00 AM, 9:00 AM, and 7:00 PM
Homily, Sixth Sunday of Easter
In his homily this weekend, Monsignor King said: “We make decisions—so many of us–make decisions and live as though this were our lasting home, this were the only reality we know, this were our true destiny. We have not here a lasting city. We should live in a way that recognizes and respects that truth.” Listen to his entire homily online on our Homilies page HERE.
Congratulations to our Confirmed!
51 of our precious young people were “sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit” and strengthened for service to the Body of Christ in the Sacrament of Confirmation this Thursday evening! Keep them in your prayers as they continue to grow in their faith.
Great food, entertainment, plus raffle, and silent and live auctions—trip to Cancun, dinner prepared by Monsignor King & Father Swamy, tickets to college football games, sports memorabilia, jewelry, family entertainment, and more!
Please consider donating a basket for the silent auction.
Tickets available after Masses beginning May 15. Questions? Contact Michele and Barry Denk (email@example.com, 877-7525).
‘The Joy of Love’: What does the Pope’s message on marriage and the family mean for us?
As Pope Francis asks pastors of souls to enter into discernment with persons whose marriage situations keep them from the sacramental life of the Church, I want our parishioners to know that the parish clergy are available and eager to meet with anyone in such a situation, and to do as Pope Francis asks, discern God’s will together with them, in humility, discretion, and faithfulness to the Gospel and the Church. — Monsignor King

THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD
Homily, Monsignor King
“We testify that there is a larger Truth that we know … a Truth that brings us from the tomb that the world presents to the Resurrection that the Lord presents. Brothers and sisters, you and I are children of the Light. Don’t give in to the terrors of this world. You and I are children of the Light. Don’t give in to the darkness that would attempt to obscure the Light. You and I are children of the Light. Don’t give in to the temptation to think it is a terrible place in which we live. You and I are children of the Light. Don’t give in to the thought that darkness is stronger. It is not.” Listen to the entire homily HERE.
