June 27 ~ Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time
Two people in today’s gospel approach Jesus for healing. However, both have turned to Jesus for healing as a last resort. There are people in our parish community who for a variety of reasons hesitate to go to Jesus in their need. Is there someone you know that needs a word of encouragement, or someone to help them turn to Jesus? Pray this week for the grace to extend yourself to this person so that he/she will put aside their fear or hesitation and turn to Jesus for help.
June 26th-27th — Second Collection for the Church in India and Brazil
The weekend of June 26th-27th, we will take up a second collection at all Masses to aid the Church in India and Brazil.
As you may know, there is immense suffering and loss of life occurring in India and Brazil due to the pandemic. The Catholic Church, through Catholic Relief Services (CRS), is on the ground in those countries working to support local hospitals and programs which are being overwhelmed and which have reached a breaking point. Your generosity is appreciated.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus
The month of June is dedicated to The Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Sacred Heart is often depicted in Christian art as a flaming heart shining with divine light, pierced by the lance-wound, encircled by the crown of thorns, surmounted by a cross, and bleeding. Sometimes, the image is shown shining within the bosom of Christ with his wounded hands pointing at the heart. The wounds and crown of thorns allude to the manner of Jesus’ death, while the fire represents the transformative power of divine love.

Scam Alert Warning
Fr. Mario's name is being used in a scam to try and extract gift cards from parishioners. We have had a few calls today with parishioners having received a text purportedly from Fr. Mario asking them to purchase $300 gift cards and to scratch of the security number and forward a picture of the gift card and security number.
DO NOT to respond to the text. It is not from Fr. Mario and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Mario would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Mario, please do not respond to these requests.
Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.
If you wish to donate securely, please use the Donate button at the top of this page.
