  • Adoration Chapel

    “Do you realize that Jesus is there
    in the tabernacle expressly
    for you - for you alone? 
    He burns with the desire to
    come into your heart!” 
    St. Therese of Lisieux

    12 CHURCH TEACHINGS that explain the importance and need to spend a weekly hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. 

    7.)  If the Pope himself would give you a special invitation to visit him in the Vatican, this honor would be nothing in comparison to the honor and dignity that Jesus Himself bestows upon you with the invitation of spending one hour a week with Him in the Blessed Sacrament. “The Divine Eucharist bestows on the Christian people an incomparable dignity.”
    (Art. 68) Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.

    8.) Day and night Jesus dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because you are the most important person in the world to Him! “Beneath the appearance of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible Head of the Church, the Redeemer of the World, the Center of all hearts.  From this it follows that the worship paid to the Divine Eucharist strongly impels the soul to cultivate a 'social' love.”

    9.)  The best time you spend on earth is with your Best Friend, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament!  "How great is the value of converse with Christ (in the Blessed Sacrament), for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing  along the road of holiness."   (Art. 70)  Pope Paul VI, Mysterium Fidei.

    To Be Continued.

  • Why do we have flowers in Church?

    The use of flowers for the adornment of the altars is an edifying practice that ties the beauty
    of God’s handiwork to the creation and works of beauty that mankind offers in return to God. 
    “New Liturgical Movement, Dec. 28, 2007.
     
    Historically, flowers have been used to celebrate the all-important events in our lives: births, graduations, weddings, funerals, remembrances of loved ones, for special intentions, etc.  What a beautiful sight to see a beautiful arrangement of flowers knowing that it is a symbol of one’s intention offered to God. 
     
    Fresh flower arrangements are set behind the altar under the crucifix each week and if you are
    interested in having flowers to commemorate a special event or for a special intentions, please call Rosa Hawkins at the Parish Office

    PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING

    The next regular meeting for the Pastoral Council of St. Gregory the Great will be held at
    6:30 pm, 23 July 2018 in Mary's House
    (Senior Center).  This is an open meeting and all parishioner are welcome to attend. 
    The meeting will stress the need to promote our parish, begin planning the recruitment of new members in May and the election of officers also in May.  


    PASTORAL COUNCIL SUPPORT 

    We will enter into a new Pastoral Council calendar year and need to work on our purpose and resolve for the year.  We serve the parish as an advisory group to Fr. Rudy with a primary focus to assist and support ministries in whichever way we can. The ultimate goal of parish life is to take a fresh look at its many aspects and shape them in ways that will bring people closer to the Lord.

    PROMOTE OUR PARISH

       We must promote our parish, build-up our image in a way that will attract new parishioners and/or increase attendance. Attracting young parents could have the potential of a positive effect on school enrollments. One way is by word-of-mouth and another way would be to submit information about our parish to Today's Catholic for publication.
