From Fr Mike Shanahan | Sunday, July 5, 2020
“Come to me all you who labor and are burdened…” As we hear the fireworks intended to remind us of protections of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”, we also hear the undeniable groan from the soul of America. There is a problem in the land. The realization of these words in the Declaration of Independence was the reason why countless men and women have given their lives and fortunes. The words of our Redeemer are welcomed. Show us the way beyond the burdens of racism, cultural brokenness, violence and inequa...

You must register to attend mass in the church.
There has been significant preparation and planning over the past few weeks in order to open the church for small gatherings. We have been aggressively seeking volunteers in order to receive certification to open. I am most grateful for our small but dedicated team of individuals who have chosen to donate their time, effort and care to the parish so the church can re-open. They have been trained and certified to help with this important effort. We can ONLY reopen on a very small scale because our team is so limited. If you are interested the easiest...

When will we re-open the Grotto?
We have gotten very many questions about the Perpetual Adoration Grotto and we understand how dearly our many devoted Adorers miss its Eucharistic presence. Of course, the problem that first caused the closure of the Grotto, the COVID 19 pandemic, is still around and as dangerous as ever. Even with the recent re-opening of churches throughout our city and state, the small space inside the Grotto and the narrow hallway leading to it make it very difficult to practice the necessary social distancing. However, new problems have aris...

The COVI...
