Pastor’s Update Letter, Apr. 2


Dear Parishioners, Alleluia, Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed, Alleluia! St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians that if Christ is not raised from the dead, our faith is in vain. As our society drifts further into immorality, uncertainty, and unbelief, it is our duty and joy to explain and defend our Christian faith. The [...]

Pastor’s Update Letter, March 25


Dear Parishioners, One of the most troubling questions for anyone who has thought through their faith is the problem of pain. If God is all powerful and all loving why does He allow us to suffer? Christians are often accused of skirting the issue of suffering, but in fact, the answer to the riddle of [...]

New stained glass windows at OLR


The two new rose windows to be placed in the North and South transepts complete the cycle of stained glass in the new OLR Church. The existing windows were created by the famed Wilbur Burnham studios in the 1940’s. These new windows are to an original design by Matthew Alderman and Mark [...]

St. Joseph’s Table


“St. Joseph’s Table” is an excellent opportunity for almsgiving during Lent. In many places (especially where there is a large population of Italians) it is traditional to collect food for the needy on the Solemnity of St. Joseph. The food is displayed on a table (sometimes in a very elaborate fashion) and distributed to the [...]

Fr. Richard’s Update Letter, Mar. 11


Dear Parishioners, There are some curious facts about Lent that are not widely known, even among many Catholics.  I thought it might be interesting to list a few of them.  How many did you already know? The word “Lent” comes from the Old English “lencten,” meaning “springtime” or “when days are lengthened.”  As Lent coincides [...]

Fr. Richard’s Update Letter, Mar. 4


Dear Parishioners, As we are now well into the season of Lent, all of us should take some time to focus upon the three traditional aspects of our Lenten discipline: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. During this holy season of penance and baptismal renewal in preparation for Easter, we make time for additional opportunities to pray [...]
