Only the 10 A.M. Mass will be celebrated on Thanksgiving Day:
there will be no 6:30 or 9:00 A.M. Mass.
All are encouraged to begin Thanksgiving Day by participating at Mass —
the word eucharist means "thanksgiving."

friends or neighbors who might otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving Day.

Our Parish Advent Mission this year will be directed by Rev.
Peter M. J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D.,
a professor, educationist and an acclaimed Mission and Retreat
Director across the United States. Father Linus heard him speak
on two occasions while in Florida, and recently in Long Island
at a seminar that Father Stravinskas organized for priests
who are involved in Catholic Schools. His
messages are compelling and uplifting!

You too are living stones,
built as edifice of spirit.
1 Peter 2:5
You form a building which rises
on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
Here you build a temple of living stones,
and bring the Church to its full stature
as the body of Christ throughout the world,
to reach its perfection at last
in the heavenly city of Jerusalem.
Preface for the Dedication of a Church
Inspired by these quotations, our WEB pages
are intended to strengthen unity and improve communication
within our parish, and establish bonds with other "living stones,"
Christian communities throughout the world.
We are building this WEB site
in a spirit of "monastic simplicity."
Our goal is not an award-winning presentation; it is rather
to help our faith community and others see our place more
clearly in "the temple of living stones," "the body of Christ
throughout the world." As the building of this "temple" is
in progress, so is the building of this WEB site.
Comments and suggestions are welcome, both to improve communication
within the parish, and to bond together with Christian communities
throughout the world.
