A Message from Fr. Irinel !

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had a few emergencies during Mass. Thank you to our parishioners for their calm demeanor during
this time and thank you to the first responders from our parish, nurses, doctors and EMTs and to the police officers and EMS who responded so quickly and professionally to help those in distress.

Sunday of the Word of God

In his recent motu propio, Aperuit illis , Pope Francis designated the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time as Sunday of the Word of God,
when all Catholics should give special reverence to the Sacred Word, both individually and collectively as members of parishes. In the document, he writes, “Devoting a specific Sunday of the liturgical year to the word of God can enable the Church to experience anew how the risen Lord opens up for us the treasury of his word and enables us to proclaim its unfathomable riches before the world.” The first celebration of this special, new day on the liturgical calendar is Sunday, January 26.

Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord

On Sunday, February 2, we will be celebrating the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord, also known as Candlemas Day,
which occurs 40 days after the Birth of Our Lord.  For the past several weeks, we have been highlighting Christ as the Light of the World through the use of additional candles during Mass. On Candlemas Day, these few weeks are brought to a conclusion with the Blessing of Candles.  Click here for full flyer concerning Candlemas Day
