"With One Voice" Capital Campaign

For a number of years, we have considered the possibility of installing a full capacity elevator for those with mobility issues. We plan to install a fully accessible elevator that will allow parishioners to go from the lower level to the upper level of the church. Additionally, we will create accessible restrooms both on the Church and ground level. This will allow greater access for all of our community.

Weekly Reflection

What Jesus Proclaims as Success

09-23-2018Fr. Brian F. Manning

We all know the saying “Success is often in the eye of the beholder.” The Gospel this weekend speaks to what Jesus proclaims as success. Keep this in mind as you reflect on the scriptures.

Our first reading, from the Book of Wisdom, speaks about the trials the “just one” must endure. In the story the plotters resent the person who dares point out their mistakes. They clearly ponder if the just one would stand for God and against threats of condemnation and death. We consider this to be a prediction of the Passion, which Jesus himself announces in today’s Gospel reading. We note that this is Jesus’ second prediction of his passion in the Gospel of Mark.
