Today we dive into THE STORY! And so perhaps unsurprisingly, we begin with the book of Genesis. While many think this book is simply untrue, we discover that it is actually true … just not as you might be reading it. Genesis doesn’t answer the question “How?” but “Why?” This is how the story begins: by answering the question, “Why is there something rather than nothing?”

“Rerouting…” Week 4: Emergency Vehicle Entrance
Why attend the Catholic Mass? Why not any church? Why not shop around town for the best preacher, or the best music, or the best children’s program, or the best donuts? What if I told you that at the Mass the single greatest miracle, the single most amazing event in the universe takes place?
“Rerouting…” Week 1: Where are we going?
Today we begin a parish journey we are calling “Rerouting…”! How many of us have felt lost in Mass and even in life? How do we get back on track? How do we discover God and His Church, and the purpose for which he created us?
The Substance of His Kingship: Restoration
Our mission is fidelity to the King and the announcement of his kingship. This fidelity and announcement have power. When one lives under the power of this kingship and kingdom, it is accompanied by signs, signs of merciful love: the hungry are fed, the thirsty have drink, the strangers are welcomed, the naked are clothed, the sick and prisoners are visited. The kingdom is breaking in, and these are the signs that it is present.
The King Is Coming!
Why is Jesus going to come again? What does it mean that he is going to judge? What does it mean his kingdom will have no end?
All Them Saints
“The only great tragedy in life is not to become a saint”
Love Isn’t a Cliché
Some people think that they are capable of great love. But really, they are just people in need of great love.
FIAT: Let the Kingdom Come
This is our theme for Stewardship this year: FIAT, “Let it be done to me.” As God continues to establish His Kingdom, as we renew our commitment to Evangelizing, to being His Disciples, to being good Stewards—it all begins with FIAT: letting it happen. The Kingdom of God arrives in and through you. Render to God what belongs to God, turn yourself over to Him, and He will accomplish the rest.
Philippians (4): You Can Do What?
“No matter what the circumstances in my life are, I have found the hidden secret to being content, to being free from anxiety and worry: I have the strength to endure anything because God gives me the strength, I depend on Him, He does not let me down.”
Philippians (3): Don’t Worry!
No anxiety? Paul is living as a citizen of the Gospel, Paul has put on the mind of the Messiah, and, because of that, Paul can see clearly, see reality in a completely new and positive way. Reality, life, life after Jesus’ incarnation, death, resurrection and ascension—reality is positive.
