Wedding Anniversary Celebration


We will have a special celebration with distribution of Archdiocesan certificates for 50th and 25th wedding anniversaries at the 10:00 a.m. Mass, Sunday July 2.  Congratulations to all celebrating a special anniversary.  Your commitment is a sign to all of us of the power of the Sacrament of Matrimony.


Hospital Calls


Please remember that federal legislation prohibits hospitals and nursing homes from calling clergy with names of parishioners who are patients.  The only way I can know that you or your loved one is in the hospital is if you call my number 858-4260 and leave all the information.  In most cases the hospital or institution will not call.  If the call is an emergency call 858-4210 and then take option two to leave an emergency message for Fr. Tharp.  The system will page me and tell me that I have an emergency voice mail. 

 Reflection on Scripture


Jesus is looking for loyalty.  Jesus will be watching and listening to see if we are loyal in time of trial or if we are embarrassed by our faith in Jesus and ashamed of our faith.  If we are ashamed of our faith in Jesus, he will be ashamed of us on judgment day.  If we are loyal, the dividends pay off for all eternity.  Are you going to invest your life in Jesus or hedge your bets?
