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-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

September 7, 2014

"Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

--Matthew 18:20

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Collect: God our Father, in obedience to you, your only Son accepted death on the cross for the salvation of mankind. We acknowledge the mystery of the cross on earth. May we receive the gift of redemption in heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


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


September is the Month of the Seven Sorrows of Mary


This devotion, instituted in the course of the thirteenth century, honors the Sorrows endured by the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is recited on a Rosary comprised of seven decades containing seven beads in each decade. Each decade of seven is divided from the rest by medals representing the seven principal sorrows of Her life.

The chaplet is said by offering a Hail Mary on each of the beads, with an Our Father each seven Hail Mary's. Completion of the chaplet requires three Hail Mary's at the end in honor of the sorrowful tears of Our Lady.

First Sorrow:

Reflect on the sorrow of Our Blessed Lady, when She presented Her Divine Child in the Temple and heard from the aged Simeon that a sword of grief would pierce Her soul.

Second Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow when, to escape the cruelty of King Herod, She was forced to fly into Egypt with St. Joseph and Her Beloved Child. Pray for those who kill children today by abortion.

Third Sorrow:

Reflect on Her grief when, in returning from Jerusalem, She found that She had lost Her dear Jesus, Whom She sought for three days.

Fourth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her meeting Her divine Son, all bruised and bleeding, carrying His Cross to Calvary, and seeing Him fall under its heavy weight.

Fifth Sorrow:

Reflect on Her standing by, when Her Divine Son was lifted up on the Cross and the blood flowed in streams from His Sacred Wounds.

Six Sorrow:

Reflect on Her sorrow, when Her Divine son was taken down from the Cross, and placed in Her arms.

Seven Sorrow:

Reflect on Her following His Sacred Body as it was borne by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus to the sepulcher.

" 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 ."
