Welcome!  As you may have noticed during the last several weeks, we’ve been undergoing some site renovations.  Pardon our dust as the renovations continue into the not too distant future.

In the meantime, to keep you updated on Parish Events we offer the following:

  • Sunday, May 3 is our Donut Day, after the 9AM Mass.  As a special treat. some of the kids from our Sunday School classes will be having a small presentation at that time as well.
  • Sunday May 3 is also our annual May Crowning.  Events will start at 3:30pm after the Spanish Mass.  We’ll be processing, reciting the Rosary, and ending in CHurch with the prayer, hymns, and the Crowning.
  • Friday, May 1 is First Friday.  Following the 8AM Mass we will have Confessions from 8:30-9:30, plus Adoration from 8:30am – 6pm, with Confessions again from 5-6pm.

St. Jane de Chantal

St. Vincent de Paul said of Jane Frances: “She was full of faith, yet all her life had been tormented by thoughts against it. While apparently enjoying the peace and easiness of mind of souls who have reached a high state of virtue, she suffered such interior trials that she often told me her mind was so filled with all sorts of temptations and abominations that she had to strive not to look within herself…But for all that suffering her face never lost its serenity, nor did she once relax in the fidelity God asked of her. And so I regard her as one of the holiest souls I have ever met on this earth” (Butler’s Lives of the Saints).
