SECOND COLLECTION

The Second Collection next Sunday is for the support of the Parish Improvement Fund. Please be generous!


  1. Beginning Ash Wednesday, March 1st, I am thinking about adding a Second Daily Mass during Lent at 7:30 pm in the Church. The Schedule would be Monday through Thursday, Mass at 8 am and 7:30 p.m. On Friday, Mass at 8 am and Stations of the Cross at 7:30 pm. Let me know what you think.

  2. Beginning on First Friday, March 3rd, and on all the First Friday’s thereafter, we will have all day Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Church. Adoration will begin following the 8 am Mass and will continue to 7:30 pm when Adoration will end with Benediction. Please sign up in the Vestibule of the Church for the period of time when you can be with Our Lord. The only way we can have all day Adoration is with everyone’s cooperation. Someone has to be in the Church at all times when Adoration is taking place. Thank you, in advance, for your prayerful service.
Fr. Brian

I will be running a column in the Bulletin on “Fascinating Bible Facts.” I hope you find these facts as fascinating as I do.

When Was Adam Created?

In 1650, Archbishop James Ussher calculated that the world was created in 4004 B.C. A few years later, John Lightfoot calculated that Adam was created on October 23 at 9:00 a.m. One scholar, quoted in The Christian View of Science and Scripture, commented dryly that “Closer than this, as a cautious scholar, the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University did not venture to commit himself.”


Dear Friends,

Congratulations to the 37 young people who were confirmed yesterday by Bishop Ignatius Wang. My prayer for all of you is that the good work begun by the Holy Spirit is brought to fulfillment in your life with the Church.

A big MD welcome to Marlon Evangelista who is the new Music Minister at the 5 o’clock Saturday Evening Mass. Marlon is a former graduate of our School and has played the piano for many years. Welcome aboard Marlon!

In the next couple of weeks, we will begin the Annual Appeal. May I remind you our goal is $29,500. I hope everyone participates.

Last Sunday is known as Super Sunday. People call it Super because of a Football game. For us Christians, Super Sunday is Easter Sunday. St. Augustine calls it “the Sunday of Sundays.” Every time we Christians gather for Mass on Sunday, it is always Super!

Have a great week!

Father Brian
