Pastor's Message

The whole Church has been rocked with the Pennsylvania scandal. Please read the Holy Father, Bishop Olmsted, and Fr. Provincial (Scott Santarosa)’s letters on our SFX Website.

Bishop Barron’s homily for Tue, Aug 21, gives us hope for a path forward.


Let Us Choose Life

08-19-2018Fr. Wanser's BlogFr. George V. Wanser, S.J.

There is a unifying theme in this Sunday’s three readings:

Proverbs 9:1-6. Wisdom or folly?
Ephesians 5:15-20. Use your time well, not in drunkenness and debauchery.
John 6:51-58. We can choose to receive the “Bread of Life” or NOT.

Let us choose wisely. Let us choose life.

Hay un tema unificador en as tres lecturas de este domingo.

Proverbios 9:1-6. ¿Sabiduría o locura?
Efesios 5:15-20. Usa bien su tiempo, no en la embriaguez y el libertinaje.
Juan 6:51-58. Elija recibir el Pan de Vida o NO.

Vamos a elegir sabiamente. Vamos a elegir la vida.

The Bread of Life

08-12-2018Fr. Wanser's BlogFr. George V. Wanser, S.J.

Each of us receives the abundant blessing of the Bread of Life - Holy Communion - when we participate in mass. We carry the bread of life forward and distribute it through our good works to all those we meet. We come back to Holy Communion to complete the cycle. This infinite circle keeps us constantly connected to God.


I Am the Bread of Life

Seeking eternal life has been the subject of many movies, books, and stories; in “The Last Crusade,” Indiana Jones’ quest is to find the Holy Grail and achieve immortality. Earthly death is our common denominator, and shattering the constraints of it has been a fantastical desire since the beginning of time.
