Masses and Reconciliation

Come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord; cry out to the rock of our salvation. Let us greet him with a song of praise, joyfully sing out our psalms.

For the Lord is the great God, the great king over all gods, whose hand holds the depths of the earth; who owns the tops of the mountains.

The sea and the dry land belong to God, who has made them and has formed them by his hand. Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the Lord who made us.

For this is our God, whose people we are, God's well-tended flock. Oh, that today you would hear his voice. (Psalm 95: 1–7).

Please, gather with us as we lift our voices joyfully to the Lord in praise and worship.

LITURGY OF THE WORD WITH CHILDRENAugust through May during some Sunday Masses as specified below. 

Just before the Liturgy of the Word, children who choose to participate are invited to come forward for a blessing and then proceed with ministers of the Word to a room separated from the large community.  Here children will hear the readings of the day, sing the Psalms, and talk about the readings and how they apply to life todayall on a level and in a manner appropriate to their age level.  This is not a class, this is the Holy Mass, continued in prayer.  Children rejoin the large assembly in time for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

DAILY SCRIPTURE: To prepare yourself to hear the word of God at the Liturgy of the Holy Mass, avail yourself of the daily scriptural readings at the Web site of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
