What is Mary’s Immaculate Conception?
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
490 To become the mother of the [Savior], Mary “was enriched by God with gifts appropriate to such a role.” The angel Gabriel at the moment of the annunciation salutes her as “full of grace”. In fact, in order for Mary to be able to give the free assent of her faith to the announcement of her vocation, it was necessary that she be wholly borne by God’s grace.
491 Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, “full of grace” through God, was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854:
Gearing up for Parish Feast Day 2022!
Take a trip into another country and learn about Filipino Language (Tagalog) & Culture with your favorite Priest!
Test your Corn Hole skills in this Parish Tournament! Get a team together, pick a name, and get ready to aim!
This performance is going to be an important part of our 2022 Parish Feast Day Fiesta & Celebrations!! Tinikling is a traditional Philippine/Filipino folk dance whose name refers to a bird that is known in the Philippines as Tikling. Mimicking the bird’s movements, this dance is characterized by the movements of one or more dancers between two bamboo poles while these are beaten in a certain rhythm against each other and onto the ground.
Our teens were amazing, right from attending practice on time, to watching the videos, setting up the practice area and finally to the actual dance rehearsals. We are also grateful to Mrs. Marlene Delledera who spent her morning and afternoon leading this practice. Thank you again for all your enthusiasm and support!!
If you or your teen has not yet signed up/ volunteered for our Feast Day celebrations, there is still time to do so. A sign-up table is set up in the commons. Sign up because there is something for everyone!!
