Church Reopening

We are open again for Mass and receiving our Lord in Holy Communion—many have already joined us, even though the obligation to go to Sunday Mass is still dispensed by the Cardinal. Jesus himself has been waiting to reengage us in a wonderful embrace and dialogue, just as he did with his apostles and followers after his death and resurrection: Welcome back, you of little faith, he says to us. Blessed are those who have not seen (or received) and yet believe.

Pastor’s Message

Renew My Church: Each One Discerning his Own Mission

The grouping team from St. John Berchmans, St. Hedwig, St. Aloysius, and St. Mary of the Angels presented our feedback report to the Renew My Church Commission. Now it is in the hands of the Cardinal and his teams. As we await our decision, let’s continue praying and ask the Holy Spirit to guide each one of us in our personal discernment, as Pope Francis says:

The word of God constantly shows us how God challenges those who believe in him “to go forth.” Abraham received the call to set out for a new land. Moses heard God’s call: “Go, I send you” and led the people towards the Promised Land.

New COVID-19 Safe Confessionals!

We have been replacing the old confessionals with newer ones that are COVID-19 safe and which provide more space for both priest and penitent. Now our priests can spend more hours hearing confessions! A big thank you to all whose financial support made this possible. We hope everyone visits the new confessionals in preparation for Easter!

For All Generations Campaign

We have been entrusted with a great treasure: St. Mary of the Angels church.

Through your prayer and financial help we rebuilt the Dome in 2010, restored the South Tower in 2012, eliminated our debt in 2013, and have now raised over $1 million in donations and pledges ear-marked for restoration, but our needs are greater.
