Sixth Sunday of Easter

Announcements from our bulletin of May 9, 2021

The first line of the gospel is from Jesus: I love you. The final words tell us how to follow him: Love one another, something repeated in the epistle from 1 John. In just those two readings some form of the word love is used 19 times. How can we go through life wondering if we are worthy of that? John's Gospel gives us a clear message: Jesus is our friend, and he loves us. His words to us are simple. The opening sentence of the gospel says, “As the Father loves me, so I also love you."

Mother's Day Blessing

Loving God,
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so you watch over your Church.
Bless these women,
that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect.

Congratulations to our Students!
¡Felicidades a todos Nuestros Estudiantes!

We all had a tough year; we also learn new ways to respond to the need for our Catechetical Program. God send us good angels to help us. For that, we are grateful for the service that Antonio Cobas provide to connect us via zoom so our children and families could continue their Catechesis at St. Mary Magdalen. Antonio, thank you. Also, all the catechists dared to work with us with this new system.

Todos hemos tenido un año muy difícil y hemos tenido que adaptarnos a cosas nuevas para responder a nuestro Programa Catequético. Dios no envió un ángel en este proceso y queremos darle las extensivas gracias al Sr. Antonio Cobas por ayudarnos a establecer el programa de zoom para nosotros continuar nuestras clases. También agradecemos a nuestros catequistas que se unieron a esta nueva forma de enseñanza.

Furthermore, we are grateful to you, the parents, and the children for open your home to us and allow the program to continue the program. Thank you to all of you!
Agradecemos también a los padres y los niños por permitirnos entrar a sus hogares y ser fieles al programa. A todos, ¡Gracias!

“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.” – John 15:12-13

Jesus' commandment is that His disciples love one another, even to the point of laying down their lives, if necessary. What gifts of myself - my skills and talents, my time, and resources— will demonstrate my love for God's people?

Being chosen as a godparent for baptism is an honor, for the godparent traditionally becomes a spiritual companion to the one being baptized in a journey of faith.

Please decide if your faith life makes you ready to publicly pledge that you have been leading a life in harmony with the Catholic tradition. Godparents should be both role models and resource persons, individuals who are at ease with the practice of their faith and would normally be considered as "active Catholics." They should be people who are comfortable with answering questions about their personal relationship with God as experienced in the Catholic Communion, even if they are unsure of all the technicalities. Godparents should be people who are interested in and will continue to spiritually support the "godchild" in the years ahead.
