It's the Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Fresh off of Pentecost Sunday with a fresh in-filling of the the Holy Spirit, the Universal Church begins June by observing the feast day of Mary, Mother of the Church, to whom the US & Canada were just recently reconsecrated (May 1st). What a comfort, amid all of this upheaval and turmoil, to know that we have the gift of Mary, our spiritual mother, to guide and protect us! Let us pray fervently for her gentle, loving protection for the Church and for the world which is suffering under such universal physical and spiritual persecution. This broken world needs Christ's Sacred Heart which is Love & Mercy itself!

3 Outdoor Daily Masses this Week
Monday, June 1st, Wednesday, June 3rd, and Friday, June 5th (First Friday)
12:00 Noon on back parking lot


Outdoor Confessions
to follow at the picnic tables out front.

So many of us are feeling deep spiritual hunger for the Eucharist, and we are so excited that we can finally begin to receive the Precious Body of Christ again. As we move forward with plans to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, fulfilling the various civil and Archdiocesan directives and guidelines is especially challenging. We are doing our best, but be aware that adjustments may be necessary as new decisions are made. Calling ahead is advised. 

Mass will be held outside on the back parking lot, weather permitting. Please bring a folding chair if you would like to sit, a hat or umbrella to shield yourself from the sun, and a face mask. Park in the front parking lot or the right side of back parking lot (back in). There will be parking assistants to guide you and instruct you from there. Please observe all directions for everyone's safety. Also, if the day has a high heat index or poor air quality and you are at risk, consider it probably best to stay home and do a spiritual communion. Know that we will keep you in prayer.

As masks are currently required at most public places, why not wear one with a respectful, gentle message of faith? We have a limited supply for, $10.95 made by a Catholic company in the USA.

Msgr. Lizor's Mass on the Anniversary of his Ordination was "Virtually" Overflowing with Friends
Certainly, when Msgr. Joseph Lizor was ordained a priest 62 years ago, he could never have imagined that he would be employing such technology in order to connect with his congregation. Certainly we are grateful he could. He was amazed and joyfully surprised to see so many show up virtually for his private Mass on Ascension Sunday. The live-stream was set up by the very helpful staff at Heartlands, where he resides. Msgr. Lizor looked great, and he was overjoyed to see so many beloved friends. He misses everyone dearly. Anyone who knows Msgr. knows he loves to remain active and engaged, so these months in near isolation have been especially trying for him. We all are looking forward to the happy day when we will be able to see each other again.
