Being Merciful to Ourselves - Fr. Gabriel Torretta, O.P.

What does it mean to be merciful to myself? Does it mean casting off exterior limitations to explore the true me, à la "Eat, Pray, Love"? Does it mean staring very hard at my weaknesses to be set free from self-deceit? Or does it mean something else entirely? In this video, Fr. Gabriel looks at the meaning of mercy for the self through studying the Gospel passage about the woman caught in adultery.

Festival Veggie Cutting

Volunteers are Needed!

Thurs. June 9th (after 11:30 am Mass)

Help is needed to slice tomatoes and onions, and to wash and cut lettuce and green peppers for the Festival this weekend. If you've volunteered in the past you know that when many hands share in the work, the job gets done very quickly.

Volunteers please meet in the Parish Center on Thurs. after the 11:30 Mass. A pizza lunch and refreshments will be provided. Don't forget to bring a cutting board and a sharp knife!
