Next week, our parish will take up The Catholic Relief Services Collection. Funds from this collection provide food to the hungry, support displaced refugees, and bring Christ’s love and mercy to all people here and abroad. Next week, please give generously to the collection, and help Jesus in disguise.
Learn more about the collection at www.usccb.org/catholic-relief.
FAST & ABSTINENCE:
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS:
Each Friday during Lent, you are invited to come to the church and pray the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. The prayer service begins at 11:40 a.m. (prior to the 12:10 p.m. Mass).
LITTLE BLACK BOOK:
The 2019 Little Black Book for the Lenten Season are daily reflections which will be based on the Sunday Gospels for this Lent (Year C). Reflections begin March 3rd and end Easter Sunday, April 21st. The books are now available at the entrance of the church. Let the Little Black Book be your Lenten Companion and may you receive spiritual graces through prayer and meditation.
Time slots for Adoration & Benediction on April 5th are now available. If a time you would like to be present is already taken, show up anyway! The more the merrier!
"When you look at the crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host, you understand how much Jesus loves you now."

I recently read an interview with Frank Gehry, probably the best-known architect in the world, conducted in advance of his ninetieth birthday. After ruminating on his long and productive career, the architect said that he still harbored a great desire: “I would like to design a church or a synagogue. A place that has transcendence.” But as he elaborated on the meaning of “transcendence,” Gehry revealed the limits of his quest.

Aunque vivo en San Barbara, voy con frecuencia a Los Ángeles por reuniones y otros eventos. Cuando estoy en la ciudad, me gusta pasear por el centro. El edificio que más me gusta mirar durante estos paseos es el Teatro Disney, cuartel general de la filarmónica de Los Ángeles y creación de Frank Gehry, probablemente el arquitecto más conocido del mundo. Como muchos otros de los edificios de Gehry, el Disney está marcado por resplandecientes superficies metálicas, curvas y un diseño juguetón. Algunos han sugerido que la fachada del teatro evoca las páginas de un libreto que acaba de caerse del podio del director. Los corros de gente que se forman con frecuencia alrededor del edificio para admirarlo y sacarle fotografías son prueba de que es una obra de arte cautivadora. Poco después de haber llegado a la diócesis de Los Ángeles, me enteré de que Gehry es uno…Read More

It was the celebration that was particularly galling. On the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed into law a protocol that gives practically unrestricted access to abortion, permitting the killing of an unborn child up until the moment of delivery. As I watched film of Andrew Cuomo signing this repulsive bill into law, my mind drifted back to 1984 and an auditorium at the University of Notre Dame where Cuomo’s father, Mario—also Governor of New York at the time—delivered a famous address.
