Hurricane Irma Cancellations

September 8, 2017
08 Sep 2017

God of heaven and earth, God who carries our lives and the lives of our whole community in your hands, be with us as we prepare for the impact of Hurricane Irma. Help us to release our anxieties and fears into those same caring hands, knowing in faith that your will for us is life and everlasting good. Send your holy angels to watch over us and guard us. May they spread their holy wings to give us shelter against the storm. For you alone, O God, are all good, all life, all love, and that love is for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Dear Parishioners:


Due to the potential impact of Hurricane Irma, the parish offices are closed until Wednesday morning. All Sunday School classes and parish activities and 12:05 daily Mass have been cancelled until Thursday 14 September.


Bishop Guglielmone has dispensed all Catholics from the obligation to attend Holy Mass this Sunday due the potential impact of the hurricane. At the present time the 5:30 pm Vigil Mass and 9 am & 11:15 Sunday Masses will be offered (the 6pm Mass is cancelled).  However, if an evacuation is ordered all weekend Masses will be cancelled.  


Please be assured that you and your family are in my prayers!


Msgr. Steve Brovey


Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary 2017

August 7, 2017
07 Aug 2017

The Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary is celebrated every year on August 15th. This feast commemorates the death of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her assumption, body and soul, into Heaven. It is the most important Marian feast, and it is also a Holy Day of Obligation. Please note the following link to a Novena for the Assumption starting  the 7th of August.

Mass times for 15 August are 9 am, 12:05 pm and 6 pm.

Father in heaven, all creation rightly gives you praise, for all life and all holiness come from you. In the plan of your wisdom she who bore the Christ in her womb was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven. May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness and join in her hymn of end-less love and praise. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen


Blessing of the Herbs

It is a traditional custom for people to bring fresh herbs to church to be blessed on the Solemnity of the Assumption . If you have an herb garden, be sure to cut some and bring them for a special blessing! The blessing of the herbs will take place at the Masses on Tuesday, 15 August. Please come early and place your herbs on the table around the Lady Altar.
