All sanitization and safety protocols will continue to be strictly implemented, thus I ask for your full and gentle cooperation. Let us all continue to be vigilant in practicing the Covid19 precautions: “3Ws”, wash hands, wear face mask and watch your 6-feet social distance always.
Let us come together and be with Christ for an hour, daily.
What is Adoration?
The Blessed Sacrament is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. When the Blessed Sacrament is exposed or displayed in the Tabernacle, we must remember that Jesus is tangibly present and we are called to respond with adoration.
Adoration requires listening and being completely present to Jesus Christ.
Being present before the Blessed Sacrament we experience Jesus’ infinite and assuring love for us, which we all need especially this time of the pandemic. As the holy scripture says, “Behold I will be with you always even to the end of the world,” because “I have loved you with an everlasting love, and constant is my affection for you.” (Mt 28:20; Jer 31:3)

Vocation Cross Program
Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” (Lk 10:2)
We are all called to pray for vocations, especially for the priestly and religious life.
Starting February 21 at the 9:45am mass and every Sunday thereafter,
parishioners will take turns in bringing the Vocation Cross home for a week.
Those who take the Cross will pray each day, the Vocation Prayer and the Rosary.
God May Make You Holy—but He Won’t Make You a Superhero
“Saints, not Superheroes” is the latest reflection on the blog devoted to priestly vocations in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. It examines what holiness is and how it is achieved. “We become holy not despite our weakness, but because of it. Only when we confess our sinfulness can we truly open ourselves to God’s all-powerful grace. Holiness does not mean you will never sin. It means you throw yourself on God’s mercy when you do. It means never giving up on God’s limitless love.” To read this message in full, click here. Vocation Discernment articles are archived at the website, above, which contains many other resources as well. Men interested in vocation discernment should contact Fr. Cameron Faller, Director of the Vocations Office.
PRAYER TO OUR LADY, HEALTH OF THE SICK DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
You shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who, at the Cross, united with Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman people, know what we need,
and we trust that you will provide for those needs so that,
as at Cana of Galilee, joy and celebration may return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the will of the Father and to do what Jesus tells us.
He who took our suffering upon Himself, and burdened Himself with our sorrows
to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas — we who are put to the test —
and deliver us from every danger. O glorious and blessed Virgin.
