Nourishing a Community of Hope Through Prayer, Action and Giving!

Prayer undergirds everything we do. St. Paul has told us that the Holy Spirit prays in us without ceasing with “sighs too deep for words.” How much more fruitful it is for that Spirit when we open our hearts wide to the love of God in prayer and contemplation. Through prayer we are called to…

She said doing something in support of family life should not be called a “chore”. Rather it should be an act…

Into the World

When Rev. Jenifer first suggested the theme of Into the World for the start of the Pentecost season, it seemed so right for more than one reason. “Into the World” was exactly where the Holy Spirit drove those first disciples to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and to witness to the love of…

Summer Days

Summers on Long Island where I grew up, meant the beach, with all it’s heat and salt and critters. We could go to the ocean side and be batted around by the waves or over to the more peaceful bay, where we could swim a straight line, dig for clams and have our toes tweaked…

Guest Choir for Parish Feast Day

We welcome the Monaco Boys Choir to sing at our Parish Feast Day Eucharist on July 23, 2017. “Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco” was founded in 1974 by H.S.H.
