From Fr Mike Shanahan | Sunday, July 12, 2020
I recently received one of the best gifts ever. It was a beautiful framed poem commonly known as “Desiderata” by Max Ehrman (1872-1945). I trust that many of you are familiar with it. I thought it might be a nice Summer reflection. Perhaps you can place it in a visible place in your home. It offers a rich, practical advice in times of adversity.   Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there might be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be in good terms with all persons. Speak your tr...

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...
