The Jubilee Year of Mercy


Focus on the Year of Mercy

Pope Francis announced a Year of Mercy starting Dec. 8th. Mercy is first of all, the way we experience God’s love toward us. Second, mercy is a way we live out God’s love in relationship to others. The traditional corporal and spiritual Works of Mercy are ways we can practice showing God’s love to others. Learn more about this coming Year of Mercy by visiting…

Fortnight for Freedom

FORTNIGHT FOR FREEDOM JUNE 21 to JULY 4, 2016
Fortnight4Freedom.org

In recent years, the U.S. Bishops have called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” fourteen days of prayer, education and action for religious freedom in the U.S. and abroad. These two weeks before Independence Day take place at a time when the liturgical calendar recognizes great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power. Join Bishop George V Murry, SJ, on Sunday, July 3rd at 10:30 am at St. Columba Cathedral in observation of this event.

Second Collection June 26th Weekend

June 26th weekend, Fr. Denis O’Brien will visit the parish to speak at all Masses about the missionary work of the Irish Pallottine Fathers in Tanzania, Kenya and Columbia. A second collection will be taken up to support their work of evangelization and development in those struggling countries. Please be generous in your support of their missionary outreach. The Pallottine Fathers were founded in Rome in 1835. Their name is derived from the family name of their founder, Saint Vincent Pallotti. He was a priest of the Diocese of Rome. He founded this religious community to promote the revival of faith and charity in the world by encouraging the apostolate of the laity and through the extension of the missionary work of the Church. He died in 1850 and was canonized by Pope Saint John XXXIII on January 20, 1963. Today, Father Denis serves in Columbia. He is looking forward to sharing his missionary experiences and his thoughts on the challenges of evangelization.
