From the Pastor: What Is Truth?

by cduesing

Why should anyone belong to the Catholic Church, especially given the scandals and problems that we all recognize? This is an extremely important question. So what is the answer? We should want to belong to the Catholic Church because it is true! I know that this is not considered politically correct to say today. Our […]

On Thursday, August 22, I will begin a series of talks that I have entitled: Know Your Faith—An RCIA for Catholics.

From the Pastor: The Harvest Is Rich, But the Laborers Are Few

by cduesing

In the Gospel today, Jesus appoints the “Seventy-Two” disciples other than the Twelve, whom he will send out on mission. They are to go to the various towns and villages and begin telling the residents about Jesus and getting them stirred up to meet him when he arrives. So often we think of the Twelve […]

From the Pastor: The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

by cduesing

Today the Church celebrates the doctrine that, perhaps more than any other, defines us as Catholics within the Christian community. It is the faith of the Church that in the Mass, at the Consecration, there is a real and substantial change in the bread and wine in which they become really and truly the Body […]

It was 50 days after the Resurrection of Christ on Easter, and nine days after his Ascension. Pentecost is an ongoing reality in the […]

From the Pastor: The Ascension of the Lord

by cduesing

Jesus spent 40 days appearing to his disciples after his Resurrection from the dead. He did not live with them as he had before. At various times, he would appear to them with some kind of instruction. Saint Paul tells us that he appeared to over 500 disciples at one time. At the end of […]

From the Pastor: A Time to Remember

Monday of this week is Memorial Day. It is a time to remember all of the men and women who have died defending our nation in its various wars and conflicts. Jesus taught that, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” These men and women have lived […]

On the weekend of May 18 and 19, the Diocese of Covington is offering an Evangelization Weekend in all of the parishes. This is a weekend when all are encouraged to reach out to people in their lives who are not actively involved in any faith and to invite them to come to Mass. When […]

From the Pastor: He Is Risen! Alleluia!

by cduesing

Without the empty tomb, there is no Christianity. Jesus would be just one more failed, false Messiah who raised the hopes of many and then dashed them. But he did rise from the dead validating everything that he had said and promised. If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, there would have been […]
