LITURGICAL TRIBUTE FUND
One of the most important things that we do when someone close to us dies is to honor their memory. As a way to
do that, we have started the Saint John of the Cross liturgical Tribute Fund. All money that is donated to this fund in
memory of a love one or friend will be used to purchase items utilized in our worship and help us to do all that we
can to assure that we have what we need to worship well.

OUTDOOR MASS AT SHRINE
Join us each Sunday, through September 4th for our Sunday
7:45am Mass at our Outdoor Shrine (weather permitting). If the
weather is inclement, the 7:45am will be held in the church. The
Sunday 9:00am and 11:00am Masses will be as usual.
This Jubilee Year of Mercy and Pope Francis’ ministry have renewed our understanding
that the Church’s heart is open wide to all, and the heart of the gospel is God’s mercy.
Flooded with God’s mercy, our hearts should overflow as channels bringing to wounded
and weary hearts Jesus’ healing mercy. For Jesus warns, our own salvation is not
guaranteed by the Liturgy of the Word (“you taught in our streets”) nor by the Eucharist (“we
ate and drank in your company”) (Luke 13:26). People far from that banquet, “from the east
and the west and from the north and south...will recline at the table in the kingdom of God”
(13:29). Rather, showing mercy is key to obtaining mercy ourselves (Matthew 5:7). So we
should never dare ask what “someone” asked Jesus, “Lord, will only a few people be
(Luke 13:23). The crucial question is “Will I be saved?” And Jesus’ answer is another
question: “Have you shown mercy to everyone, freely, gladly, no limits, no conditions, no
