We strive to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by gratefully sharing our many gifts from God

Statue of Our Lady of the Meadows

Lord our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of Mary, our mother, with confidence in her protection may receive strength and comfort in all our needs.

Mission Appeal 2014

Each year, Parishes of the Diocese are assigned Missions

of our Universal Church in order that they can appeal for

help and support. This year, our Parishes have been assigned

the Amruthavani Communication Centre of India. The

Centre works on behalf of the Andhra Pradesh Bishop’s Council

comprising of 13 Dioceses. The role is to promote evangelization

-- now with special focus on the protection of female

babies and pregnancies which are deemed undesirable.

The Centre will use mainstream media to bring justice

and to promote right to life.

Please use the contribution envelopes available to you for

your use. The collection will remain open for three weekends

including this one



Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

August 31, 2014

Be transformed by the renewal of your mind,

that you may discern what is the will of God,

what is good and pleasing and perfect.

--Romans 12:2

The Dormition or the
Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15


Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.

A peace that comes from fear and not from the heart is the opposite of peace.

Gersonides, French rabbi and philosopher


Priest answers Planned Parenthood's "I have a say" campaign


How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

" Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen ."
