Crucifixion, Giotto

Lift High the Cross

The cross of Jesus Christ stands at the center of salvation history. On the cross, Jesus offered his life as a sacrificial gift to the father. You and I enter into that sacrificial offering through our communion with him in the Eucharist. The cross is our key to the life of the Resurrection. Today the priest wears red vestments, the same colour used on Good Friday, the day of the Lordís Passion and Death.

Our Lady of Sorrows

On Monday, September 15th, we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. On Good Friday Mary, the Mother of Jesus, stood silently at the foot of the cross. With Jesus she offered her life and her will to God, trusting in his mercy. She grieved the suffering of her Son and now rejoices with him in Glory. Join us for Mass at 8:15 a.m.
