Welcome to our Parish Community

3rd Sunday of Lent – Cleansing of the Temple

In today’s Gospel, Jesus passionately cleanses the Temple. Given the unjust treatment of the poor who came to offer sacrifice and the degree of noise that was reverberating, Jesus comes to restore a spirit of justice and peace to what He describes as His Father’s house. Every time we gather for Holy Mass in our beautiful church, we also enter into the house of the Father and are called to worship in spirit and truth. We do so by genuflecting before the Blessed Sacrament when entering and exiting the pew, by listening attentively to the word of God and asking the Holy Spirit to open our minds and hearts, by reverently receiving Holy Communion, and by spending some quiet time thanking and praising God for the gift of His very life in the Holy Eucharist. As a parish family gathered together in our Father’s house, our reverent disposition helps those around us to enter into this time of prayer and peace.

With my love and prayers,

Father Cull
