We all long for a full life, for unbroken happiness. Today’s gospel tells us that Jesus is as important to our happiness as water is to life. In Jesus’ encounter with a sinner and heretic we discover the story of our own conversion from sin. The hardness of our hearts makes us as slow as the Samaritan woman to admit that material things do not satisfy, and as rebellious as the Israelites in the desert to trust the Lord. But our unhappiness allows us to experience God’s love all the more. Once we ask Jesus for life and admit our sin, we do not find shame but liberation to be our best selves. Nor can we contain our joy. We become apostles, as the woman shared her knowledge of Christ. Recognizing Jesus to be savior brings new life. Ours is not the only thirst. It was Jesus’ thirst which brought about the encounter in Samaria, and it is his thirst for a bountiful harvest, his desire to give living water, the indwelling Spirit, which brings us the gift of unending happiness.


 We have received approval to proceed with the paving of the parking lot to the west of the church. This will provide us with an additional 76 parking spots. A sketch will be posted shortly in the Narthex of what the parking lot will look like. We have started submission of applications to the city for the permits to proceed. We expect to receive these permits by mid April at which time we will go out to tender for construction. We expect the construction to occur during the summer and look to have it completed by the end of September. 


All women of the parish are invited to the CWL General Meeting on Monday, March 13th at 7:00 pm. Rosary followed by the meeting in Room 2. Refreshments will be available. 

Come join us and feel free to bring a friend!

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
