Dear friends in Christ,

I hope this note continues to find you all healthy and safe. I am so appreciative of all of the parishioners who have been able to participate in our live stream Mass each weekend. We have received many positive comments from you, which gives us strength and courage to keep moving forward. I am slowly becoming more comfortable with the format; though miss your presence tremendously. Liturgy is very much a dialogue, a give and take, participatory. It is difficult presiding without that strong, audible, tangible response from the congregation.

This weekend we will celebrate Palm Sunday. Once again we will have live stream Masses on Saturday at 5 p.m. in English and Sunday at 11:30 a.m. in Spanish. The good news is that 2400 palms arrived this week. The bad news is that we will not be able to distribute them until a later date, but know they will be blessed and ready to go when we are able to gather for public Masses again.

I am enjoying many of the inspirational quotes I am finding on line. One I enjoyed this week:

Quiet Time with God Not cancelled

Praying for the Sick Not cancelled

Checking on a Friend Not cancelled

Helping Others Not cancelled

Church online Not cancelled

Being the Church Never cancelled!

Stay healthy, stay safe. I look forward to welcoming you home soon!

Fr. Tom 

Queridos amigos en Cristo: 

Espero que esta nota continúe encontrando a todos sanos y seguros. Estoy muy agradecido con todos los feligreses que han podido participar en nuestras Misas transmitidas en vivo cada fin de semana. Hemos recibido muchos comentarios positivos de parte de ustedes, los cuales nos dan fuerza y ​​animo para seguir adelante. Poco a poco me estoy sintiendo más cómodo con el formato; aunque extraño su presencia tremendamente. La liturgia es un participativo y en gran medida un diálogo, un dar y recibir. Es difícil presidir sin esa respuesta fuerte, audible y tangible de la congregación.

Este fin de semana celebraremos el Domingo de Ramos. Una vez más tendremos Misa en vivo ​el sábado a las 5 pm en inglés y el domingo a las 11:30 am en español. La buena noticia es que llegaron 2,400 palmas esta semana. La mala noticia es que no podremos distribuirlas hasta una fecha posterior, pero sabemos que serán bendecidas y estarán listas para ser distribuidas cuando podamos reunirnos nuevamente para las Misas públicas.

Estoy disfrutando muchas de las citas inspiradoras que encuentro en línea. Una que disfruté esta semana:

No se ha cancelado - Tiempo en silencio con Dios  

No se ha cancelado - Orando por los enfermos

No se ha cancelado - Asegurándose que un amigo esté bien

No se ha cancelado  - Ayudando a otros  

No se ha cancelado  - Ver la Misa en línea  

Siendo la Iglesia  ¡Nunca será cancelada! 

Manténganse saludables, manténganse seguros. Espero poder darle la bienvenida a casa pronto!

Padre Tom
