The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 27)

Celebrating the Christian Mysteries
Sunday, the “Lord’s Day”, is the principal day for the celebration of the Eucharist because it is the day of the Resurrection. It is the day of the Christian family, rest from work, and joy. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1193)
Join us for the celebration of the Christian Mysteries through the prayer of the holy.
Saturday Mass: 4:30 pm
Sunday Mass: 7:30 am, 9:00 am, 11:00 am and 7:30 pm
See our website for additional times during the week.
Christ is the true temple of God, “the place where his glory dwells;” by the grace of God, Christians also become temples of the Holy Spirit, living stones out of which the Church is built. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1197)
Our visible churches are images of the holy city, the heavenly Jerusalem, toward which we are making our way on pilgrimage. In the churches we publicly celebrate the glory of the God through hearing His Word in the Scriptures, singing His praises, lifting up our prayer intentions, and offering the sacrifice of Christ’s death and resurrection, and being sent out to love one another. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1198-99)
