Dear all, 

We have reopened our Sunday Services for 11:00 AM

We following strictly the guidelines for social distancing in the Sanctuary.

Church staffers will guide you at the entrance, and Sanitizers are also at the entrance that must be used before entering the Sanctuary, if you don't have a mask, we provide it.
Thank you! 

Because of the spread of the COVIT19 Virus, the Food pantry will be still closed because the small hallway allies make it impossible to keep social distancing in the Pantry.(We do will handout food packages and clothes as needed to our immediate neighbors). 

We are doing this in accordance with the Governor's office and the recommendation of the health departments.

"The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross."St. Anthony of Padua  


St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, 
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; 
to be understood as to understand; 
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive; 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; 
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

St. Clare

O glorious Saint Clare!
God has given you the power of working miracles continually, and the favor of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety, and distress; we beseech you, obtain for us from Jesus, through Mary, His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully, if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls.
Saint Clare Pray For Us!

Think about, we are all the human family and in need of Love, not hatred. May we all understand the ultimate source of our Existence that we are created equal by a loving God.
