News & Events
“Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time will come.”
We all take things for granted. In particular, we take time for granted. We make our lives too busy. We plan our time, our days, weeks, months, even years in advance. Remember, our time on earth is a gift. None of us knows how long we will be here. Start today and begin thanking God through your Stewardship for each and every day. Take time in silence, every day, and listen to how God is calling you right now to help build His kingdom on earth.
Pray the Liturgy of the Hours
Lectio divina is a form of meditation rooted in liturgical celebration that dates back to early monastic communities. It was a method practiced by monks in their daily encounter with Scripture, both as they prepared for the Eucharist and as they prayed the Liturgy of the Hours.

Advent prepares us for the great celebration of Christmas. Advent has a twofold character: as a season to prepare for Christmas when Christ’s first coming to us is remembered and as a season when that remembrance directs our mind and heart to await Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time. Advent Season is a period for devout and joyful expectation.
God of light and life, give us hope as we wait for your coming again.
When we are tempted to be grateful to have found you while others are lost, send us out into the darkness in search of those who need you most. Amen.
Online Resources for Advent
THE CATHOLIC MINISTRIES DRIVE, IGNITE YOUR FAITH FOR CHRIST’S MISSION, HAS LAUNCHED THROUGHOUT THE DIOCESE. During Lent and throughout the year, we are challenged to renew our spiritual devotions and duties, and one of those holy duties is to support the Church. This drive focuses on a select group of ministries with emphasis on the poor, families, youth, seminarians. And leadership development of clergy and laity. Please reflect on Bishop Mark’s invitation when it arrives and return your pledge card in the offertory. There will also be a donation card in the Diocese’s new magazine, PROCLAIM, Christ in your Life. All contributions received beyond our parish target amount will be used for Resurrection Church projects. Thank you for supporting these vital ministries with sacrificial gifts of prayer and treasure. 100% of your donation goes directly to these ministries.
Please note this change.
