33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

You are my inheritance, O Lord!

Psalm 16

Hold on to the promise that awaits us.
First Reading:
Daniel 12:1-3 Those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever.

Second Reading: Hebrews 10:11-14, 18 Where there is forgiveness, there is no longer offering for sin.

Gospel: Mark 13-:24-32 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

We pray for all the sick in our parish, especially: Maureen Dan, Jack Devine, Florence Farrow, Jovita Guajardo, and Lory Manzano.

May God bless them and their families.

A big thank you to the San Tinig Choir as well as our own Children’s Choir who sang last Saturday night in concert.

The Church was filled with people as well as music praising the Lord. Thank you everyone for a beautiful concert and a beautiful experience!
