Presented by Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Dr. Edward Sri, this study was filmed in the Holy Land so Catholics can experience the extraordinary world in which Jesus lived and taught—the historical context, the politics, the clashing cultures, the history, and the ancient land—and see where the most significant events of his life took place, from his infancy to his ascension.
This study shows, in a simple way, how Jesus, the Incarnate God, is both fully divine and fully human—his intimacy with the Father, his revelation of the Father’s love, and his extraordinary influence on his disciples, his followers, and even his enemies.
Most importantly, this encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life in him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.

Your Registration also signs you up for free online streaming of each session!

Green Phase Update

Sacraments during Yellow Phase

The Sacrament of Penance

We will continue to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance on Saturdays from 3-4 PM in the CHURCH. Please follow the rules already posted in the Church for this sacrament.

Beginning Saturday, June 13, we will celebrate the Sacrament of Penance after the 7:15 AM Weekday Mass as usual. The station will be the one nearest the Tabernacle so the Saturday devotions can still take place. Again, please follow the rules as posted.

The Sacrament of Baptism

Baptisms have been permitted up to this point but you are now able to invite more than 10 people to the celebration. Please follow all social distancing rules and masks are required (except of the child being baptized and anyone under 2 years old). We will celebrate Baptisms ONE family at a time and TWO per Sunday until further notice at 12:30 PM and 1:15 PM. Please call the Parish Office to schedule or reschedule.

The Sacrament of the Sick/
Sick Calls

The Sacrament of the Sick will still be offered to those in imminent danger of death in hospitals, nursing homes or at home. Normal visits to the sick or Communion Calls in homes, nursing homes and hospitals have not yet resumed. We will let you know when they are allowed again and let you decide if you wish a visit.

The Sacrament of Marriage

As with Baptisms, we’ve been able to do weddings but now we’ll be able to let you invite more people–up to the 50% capacity limit.

Again, social distance rules will apply as will the requirement to wear masks. (Yes, we’ll let the Bride and Groom remove theirs to smooch :-). Also, there would be no reception line.

Funerals

Again, we’ve being celebrating funerals during this time, but now we will be able to allow more people to attend–up to the 50% capacity limit. And we priests are still available to come to funeral homes and cemeteries for services.

Funeral Directors have been taking care of asking people to observe social distancing during calling hours and we expect them to continue during this phase. Mask requirements and Communion rules at Mass will apply.

A number of people who celebrated smaller funeral Masses or services during this time may wish to schedule a Memorial Mass now that a larger crowd is permitted to pray together. Please call the Parish Office to set that up. With the exception of some rituals/texts that are only done in the presence of the deceased, the readings and other prayers are the same. We are more than happy to help bring comfort at this time.
