Yes, Jesus Loves Me...

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Written by

Often times we hear people say: we are the hands and feet of Jesus. These words have not only been echoed by the Holy Family Knight of Columbus but actually put into action as they donated 12 wheelchairs through our Holy Family Youth Missionaries during their recent missionary experience to Haiti this August. 

Anthony's Adventures in Haiti!

Thursday, April 18, 2013 Written by

Just like the Magi two thousand years ago, I set out on an uncertain, yet enthusiastic journey to Haiti as an ambassador and missionary from the Holy Family Cathedral, on a preliminary encounter with the people toward our missionary trip in August 2013. 

What Are You Worth?

So, what are you worth?  I’m not asking about your financial net worth which you take to the bank in the hope of getting a loan.  I’m asking about you...as a person...a human being...how much are you worth?

Lent Versus Giving Up

Saturday, February 23, 2013 Written by

So I grew up in a family where Lent was for me an obligated punishment as opposed to a pleasing observance. My Mom, a few days before Ash Wednesday, would start to sing into our ears the need for Lenten observances and “giving ups” – prominent among which was FASTING from FOOD!!! She made each child spy on one another so you could hardly break the fast until the appointed time. As a smart little boy, I remember making a deal with my little brother by breaking the fast before 12:00 noon and we made strong promise not tell on each other…so technically we were still fasting because our lips would be wiped super clean, and our faces dropped in hunger (faked though).

Lorena Went A Cleaning

Friday, January 25, 2013 Written by

I will proudly state that I have the most fantastic cleaning person in the world. Since hiring Lorena about 5 years ago I have never once worried about the state of cleanliness in the rectory. She is, in one word, amazing. This past week she embarked on one of the most dangerous missions of her life: cleaning the main closets in the living room.

Christmas Traditions

Thursday, December 20, 2012 Written by

This Blog was written by Mike Cey our Parish Pastoral Council Chair

So I am sure we all have time honoured traditions we observe within our circle of family and friends as we approach the most joyous of events in the birth of our Lord! For many of us it is in the gathering of loved ones at certain times and places to share food, drink, laughter and the warm company of one another that makes this season even more special and memorable. 

The Conversion of a Pre-Christmas Grinch

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 Written by

I’ve been described by some as a conservative Catholic.  I don’t know if I am or not, but I do have very strong views when it comes to issues like euthanasia and abortion.  I am thoroughly convinced that Jesus is truly, really and substantially present in the Eucharist.  And I’ve been known to be a real stickler regarding the difference between Advent and Christmas.  Now if these points don't define one as being a conservative Catholic, then I don't know what will!

Thank You!

“What holidays do we have this month Dad?”  My daughter’s question came as she was eating her breakfast bagel, smothered in strawberry cream cheese, at the kitchen island.

“Holidays…” I thought to myself as I was preparing my breakfast, “there are no holidays in November.”

A Way Out

"Why are you crying Sweetheart?"

"I'm really upset Daddy, So and So didn't invite me to her birthday party!"  Then the floodgates opened as the tears and mournful cries intensified.

This is how Ava greeted me when she got off the bus yesterday.
