Summary of the Pope’s Apostolic Letter “Desiderio Desideravi” on the Liturgy One Year After “Traditionis Custodes”

With “Desiderio Desideravi,” the Apostolic Letter to the People of God, Pope Francis invites to overcome both aestheticism, which only takes pleasure in external formality, as well as carelessness in the liturgies: “A celebration that does not evangelize is not authentic,” he says.

Articulating Hope

Parking Lot Project

Our Parking Lot is currently undergoing a huge transformation.  If you are visiting us, our Masses will be held in our Gym.  You may park for the weekend liturgies either behind the Gym, in the parking lot adjacent to the Gym parking lot, or in Hospital Center Commons (which is behind the Church Campus).  We have a pathway that leads from Hospital Center Commons to the Gym area.  We have signage around the campus to help direct you.  Please do not walk on any unpaved areas and please do not park in the circle in front of the Gym.  THIS IS A FIRE LANE.  Thank you for your patience!  Please click on the photo below to enlarge the image.
