La Eucaristía: Renovación Espiritual en la Cuaresma.

Obispo Robert Barron

En la Iglesia primitiva, los católicos creían certeramente que Cristo estaba realmente presente bajo las especies del pan y del vino. Si una persona no creía esto, no podía ser miembro de la Iglesia. Hace unos años, una investigación de “Pew” informó que el 69% de los católicos cree que la Eucaristía es sólo simbólica. ¿Qué ha pasado? La falta de buena catequesis es una respuesta probable.

El Obispo Barron ha publicado una serie de estudios sobre la Eucaristía que reúne la historia y la enseñanza de la Iglesia para enseñar lo que Jesús enseñó: que la noche antes de ser crucificado, tomó pan, lo rompió, diciendo “este es mi cuerpo…” y que Jesús literalmente quiso decir eso.

Únase a nosotros para ver esta serie de videos de 4 sesiones donde miraremos la historia, y aprenderemos de lo que los primeros Padres de la Iglesia entendían lo que era la Eucaristía, y cómo y por qué es nuestro alimento espiritual.

Los encuentros los aremos a través de Zoom los viernes 5, 12, 19, 26 de marzo de 7:30 a 9:00pm.

May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between
preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways
to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.



We will be opening the 2021 Mass Book this Thursday, October 1st. Due to the
pandemic, we will take mass intention requests this year via email or in written form beginning Thursday, prioritizing them in the order we receive them.

PLEASE NO PHONE CALLS so that we can maintain a written, prioritized list as the requests come in. We ask that you make sure your email address or telephone number are included in your request so that we may contact you if there are conflicts with the date requests.

Donation request remains $10 per mass intention. In accordance with Diocesan policy, only the Saturday morning 8 am mass may be double-booked for intentions. Initially we are limiting the number of requests per family to 12 maximum so that everyone has a fair opportunity for one mass intention per month.

Mass intentions are available for Monday through Friday masses at 7:30 am, Saturday morning masses at 8 am, our weekend schedule of Saturday at 5:30 pm, Sunday at 8 am, 10 am , 12 noon and 3pm in Spanish.  We also have mass intentions available on the 1st Friday of the month at 7 pm, the, 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10 am at Diamond Ridge, 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10 am at Stoneman Village and the 3rd Friday of each month at 7 pm in Spanish if you’d like to request any of those.

Please feel free to use the form provided [HERE].
